Personal Impression
Well I love the name- I am a Joanne and have nick names of JoJo, JoJo-Booh, and Joeybooh. It's not too country for me.

How is this name not as pretty as Joanna? Oh let me guess, just because it has no a.

Although this name isn't near as pretty as Joanna or Johanna, it's much prettier than plain and dull Joan.

Joanne is such a pretty name, and currently underused. The nickname Jo is cute. Joanne and Joanna are both lovely, and were popular names for my own generation. They actually seem comparatively fresh now.

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.

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.

I think it's really outdated and not too pretty. I much prefer Joanna or Johanna.

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

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.

This is my mom's name and people always spell it Jo Ann or Joann or even Joan which is pretty annoying.
Liesl  1/19/2011
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.

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

Joanne was used the most between 1930 and 1950.

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.
indigopearl  8/13/2006
It does sound beautiful with a soft J. I think I'd tell people to pronounce it like that if it was my name.
