User comments for Joan (1) (Meaning / History Only)

I know someone called JoAn, which probably is a mixture oh Jo and An. Also spelled Joanne, Joann.

Joan is the feminine of the biblical name John and means Gift from God. It is also noted as Shona, which is also known as Jane in Irish which is also the feminine of John.

Joan doesn't mean "Gift from God". It means "God is gracious" from John (Yahweh=God). Joan of Arc is called Jeanne d'Arc in France.
