Creative ways to honor a (Grandmother) Jean

I’ve thought of [name]Jane[/name] which is obvious and [name]Johannah[/name] which I;m not sure is dated or classic.

Any ideas?
[name]Blair[/name] :wink:

I’m more inclined to say [name]Johannah[/name] is dated but [name]Jane[/name] is lovely:) Some other variations of [name]Jean[/name]:


[name]Hope[/name] you find something you love:) Good [name]Luck[/name]!

  • [name]Charlie[/name]

You’ve got literally dozens of options-you’re lucky to have a relative with a name that has so many variants! The pp listed some of the best choices, but there’s also:
[name]Asia[/name] (believe it or not, a Polish diminutive of [name]Joanna[/name], pronounced [name]AH[/name]-sha)
[name]Jessie[/name] (originally a Scottish diminutive of [name]Jean[/name])
[name]Nina[/name] (via [name]Gianina[/name])
Not to mention all the options for boys like [name]John[/name], [name]Jack[/name], [name]Sean[/name], [name]Giovanni[/name], etc.

I have a grandmother [name]Jean[/name], as well and am considering [name]Jeanne[/name] or [name]Eugenie[/name] (which honors my grandmother who went my [name]Jeannie[/name] and grandfather [name]Eugene[/name])

Another one for a girl is [name]Jenette[/name]/[name]Janette[/name].

What about the name [name]Janeane[/name] (juh-neen)?

What’s your grandmother’s middle name?

– [name]Nephele[/name]

I think [name]Johanna[/name] (I prefer it without the last H) is perfectly useable, I don’t think it’s dated. However I think [name]Jane[/name] is better. [name]Jane[/name] is a real winner of a name.
