Recorded in Latvia in the late Middle Ages, this name is of uncertain origin and meaning. However, a derivation from Latvian jauns "young; new" has been suggested as well as an adoption of the Old Prussian given name Jawne. The name is occasionally found in present-day Estonia.
Derived from the French Jaune, meaning "Yellow". Also intentionally similar to the name Joan, referencing the historical figure Joan of Arc. In popular culture, Jaune is the name of one of the main characters of the popular web series RWBY.
