Another version is Joannie. The girl I know named this is French so the J is softer then English pronunciation and just rolls off tongue.

It does sound beautiful with a soft J. I think I'd tell people to pronounce it like that if it was my name.

It sounds a bit old-fashioned, and also a bit country. It also reminds me of a very arrogant former MTV host.

This name is pretty, but despite the Jo Rowling connection, I still see this as a bit of a "country name"
Joanne isn't nearly as pretty as Joanna, which itself isn't even as pretty as the stunning Johanna.

This is my mom's name and people always spell it Jo Ann or Joann or even Joan which is pretty annoying.

I have an aunt named Joanne but she's often called Jo. I'm not a big fan, but the nickname Jo suits her well.

Everyone says this name is too country and I strongly disagree. I am the anti-country.

I think it's really outdated and not too pretty. I much prefer Joanna or Johanna.
-- Anonymous User  6/14/2015
I generally prefer Joan, as it sounds much more sophisticated in a simpler way. Joanne, however, is a nice name too; very graceful, very sweet sounding.
