Joanne Rowling does not actually have a middle name, but she added the name Kathleen as that was her grandmothers name.

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.

Joanne is a very pretty name. I have only known one girl named Joanne.

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

One of the two middle names of Lady GaGa (Stefani Joanne Angela Germanotta.

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.
-- JaciGia  8/4/2011
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I think it's really outdated and not too pretty.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.
-- RoseTintsMyWorld  5/10/2016

This is my name. Many people spell it wrong but there are many variations. Yes, it can get annoying but you correct it and move on with your day. Mine is JoAnne. Two capitals no space or hyphen and an "e" at the end.
The fact that the name isn't used much anymore is fine with me. Too "country"? What does that even mean? It's a name.
There is a song Joanne by Michael Nesmith of the Monkees also.
