It looks very pretty, and has a connection to the saint I love best. If I ever had a child and wanted to name it for her, I would choose this version of her name. The only problem I have with it is the American tendency to pronounce it "jeen" or "jeenee".

I knew a girl named Jeanne who pronounced it like Jenny.

I think this name is gorgeous when pronounced correctly in French. In English, you'll likely be called "Jean" though, which isn't very pretty. No offense, my mom's name is Jean and she's not too fond of it. I would name our daughter this if we were living in France instead of the US.

I know someone with this name who pronounces it Gee-Ahn.
But that seems quite unusual to me.

I always thought it was pronounced jee-Ann.
-- Anonymous User  1/30/2013
"Jee-ann"? No, it's "Jean" but with "ne" on the end.
-- EstherTester  3/23/2013
It kind of does look like jee-ann... But anyways, it's a lot prettier than just Jean. Although, the pronunciation in France looks like it's the same as the male name Jean... Not sure though.
-- Anonymous User  4/13/2013
France would be different for sure, but I've only known Americans with this name and they all pronounced it like "Jean".

Jeanne was a very popular name in France in the early 1900's, and after a brief period of unpopularity, it has made a comeback. It is apparently the 2nd most common name given to girls born in the 20th century, probably because it was ranked very high on yearly popularity charts for quite a while.
