Comments for JOANIE:

This is such a pretty name (my name by the way). My first name is actually Joan, but I go by Joanie. The only thing I hate is I get "Joanie love Chachi" a lot. I like how it's not incredibly popular, I've only met a few Joanie's in my life. I would highly recommend this name to anyone thinking about using it! :)

One famous bearer of this name is the fictional character Joanie Cunningham from the popular television series, "Happy Days" and its spin-off "Joanie Loves Chachi." The character was portrayed by Erin Moran from 1974 to 1984.

My name is Joanie and it's not a very common name and the spelling of it is just the same. Most people want to call me Joannie or they say my last name because they don't know how to say it, but I still like my name, I feel it fits me. Even though it was not spelled the way my mom had planed it.

Not a big fan of Joan, but Joanie is very sweet :)

I love this name over names like Joanne. Of course I can't help but think of Joanie "shortcake" Cunningham. However, the association is not a bad thing. I always thought the character was a sweetheart. I also like that this name isn't common. I can say I have never met anyone named Joanie. Its simple, yet not so common. Perfect.

I grew up being called Joanie, and I absolutely hated it from the time I was a teenager. People could not spell it, pronounce it, thought it was a nickname for Joan, thought my parents must be hippies to name me after Joni Mitchell, which they didn't. And now as an adult working with multiple cultures, people have an even harder time with it. In French, it sounds like Johnny. Switched to my middle name in my mid-20s. The name is outdated, and from my own experience, I would advise against it.
