This name seems to be handed down through my family on my mum's side. It's my middle name and I've always thought it really plain and boring.

My middle name is Jean. I was named after my grandmother. I always thought of it as a simple yet elegant name.

My grandmother is named Jean. The name was very popular in the 1920s when she was born. She often jokes about her primary school class, which had 7 girls named Jean and 9 named Shirley. If the teacher wanted silence she would call out "Jean and Shirley! Be quiet!", thus silencing half of the class!

My middle name is Jean like a lot of people on this comment list. It was my mother's middle name. Honestly, I don't really like it. I mean it's not a horrible name but Jane or Jeanne would be more elegant I think. If you like old fashioned names this would be a great choice.

I used to think this name was boring until I met a girl named Jean who might be the nicest person I've ever met. I may name my first daughter this because I will never forget her kindness.

This is my first name, it was very unique for me because I didn't know anyone else with my name. It was my mom and my Grandmother's middle name. The only thing I didn't like was that it was always being misspelled in school.

This is a nice, Scottish-sounding classic sort of name, and I like it, though I prefer Jane.

It's funny when people say, hey, I like your jeans! Or when they're teaching about genetics and talking about genes. You have genes, Jean. Your gene is ugly.

This seems like a good middle name, but I also like it as a first name. It's a little too short if you ask me, though.

I personally love this name. I think this is largely because I absolutely love the song "Daydream Believer" by The Monkees.

Joan of Arc's French name is Jeanne not Jean!

This seems to be the middle name of every other trailer trash or hillbilly woman or girl. Very unimaginative and dull, especially as a middle name.

My middle name is also Jean. I was given it as a namesake after my great aunt Eugena, whom everyone called"Jean". I don't like it for a first name, but I like it as my middle name. It's a very plain and traditional name, but I cherish it because it is a namesake to me.

Alrighty! This is an article of clothing. I think there are plenty of ways little kids will make fun of this name. Sooooo If you really want your kid to be made fun of, don't say I didn't help.

I wouldn't name my child this, but I do like this name. It has a nice old fashioned ring to it.

Jane is much prettier, in my opinion.

I really, really like this name. It's not so common for a first name and I know only of one person with this first name. I'm currently in love with this name.

At the moment, I'd definitely consider Jean for a daughter, if I ever have one - as either a first or a middle name, mainly because of the model and actress Jean Shrimpton and also my grandmother was called Jean. I think it's simple yet beautiful in its own antique way.

We are currently settled on this as a middle name if our baby is a girl, because it is the first or middle name of both of my husband's grandmothers (one of which passed away before he was born). I personally find it rather short and plain, and would prefer something more unique (not so classic), but I do like the meaning "God is Gracious".

I am named Jean Louise after my two grandmothers, Vera Jean and Helen Louise, but I've been called Jeana since I was little. My mother's middle name is Jean, and my brother named his little girl Sarah Jean, which I think is cute. I never liked "Jean" or "Louise" because they are old fashioned names. I've decided to start liking my name, however, because it is, after all, my name and I do like that Jean means "God's gracious gift" as the other responder mentioned. I also prefer to like my name because I don't want to hurt my mother, and because I loved my grandmother Vera Jean so dearly- as did we all! :)

I like this name! I would name a child of mine Jean.
