Not a favorite, but it's nice and sounds cute. This is a name that fits a girl who is prim, feminine and sweet. I've known 2 Jeanette's and they seem to be a bit girly.

Jeanette is the name of a character in the story I have written. As the name sounds--it is dainty and feminine. It is a French form of JOHN which is "God Is Gracious" in which gives my character of Jeanette, her graceful fashion. She is a 13-year-old girl, rather prim and proper, shy around people but tries to be the most polite and gracious around the ones she knows, she can become overbearingly quaint and stuffy, which is due to her Victorian root which she innately inherited (and it's the early 1930's!). Jeanette is known as the ladylike beauty of her group, but eventually will learn to break out of her stuffy shell...even meaning her corset. She will learn to open up to love and to accept new ideas in life without forgeting who she really is.

My name is Jeanette. Not a very common name. I think it's a plain name to me.

It will be mispronounced in the U.S. all the time. Otherwise, it's nice.

This is my middle name and I think it's absolutely wonderful! I don't think it would work as my first name at all, but having it as my middle adds a continental touch to the Irish-Irishness of the rest of my name.

I think it's pretty, though it's not a favorite. To me, it sounds like the name of an shy, smart girl who has her sights set on living a successful life.

I find this name quite beautiful. My sister's name is Jeanette, I find this name to fit her really well. She is girly yet can be quiet. I sometimes call her Jeanettey just to annoy her.

My name happens to be Jeanette. After reading all the comments and the
meaningful history of my name... I love it even more.
My boyfriends' name is John which I find out is the male version of Jeanette.
Which means "God is Gracious" I feel even more blessed to have my name.
I love the fact that it was made famous by a singer and actress in the 1920's and 1930's because nowadays that is what I do as well.
I am happy to be a Jeanette more than ever.
