  • How about a more modern version like Janna/Jana.

    The only Jane I've ever known personally was a bit of a psycho and a compulsive liar. So, personally I would avoid the name, but I don't dislike it in general.

  • WHY DONT YOU TRY LOOKING UP THE MEANINGS TO NAMES THAT IS WHAT I DID
    The name Jane is of Hebrew origin.
    The meaning of Jane is "G-d is gracious".

    Jane, is generally used as a girl's name. It consists of 4 letters and 1 syllable and is pronounced Jane.

    In 2011, it ranked 368 out of the top 1000 most popular U.S. girls names.

    View the Jane Popularity Page to see how the popularity trend for Jane has changed since 1880, or to compare the popularity of Jane to other names.

    Jane is a form of the earlier name John which in turn may have its origins in an earlier form of the name.

  • Jane is better as a middle name IMO. Out of your list, reversed, I like Catherine Jane and Scarlett Jane.

  • WHY DO YOU USE ALL CAPS JESUSFREAK???

    Because she's rude. She was told not to last night and started proselytizing in reply.


    OP: you might want to consider a longer version that can be shortened to Jane, so she has options when she's older without having to use her middle name.

  • I love the name Jane. I love the fact that's it's plain. Everyone has names like Sophia, Emma, etc. It's actually unusual to have a name like that now. I say "go for it"!
