Baby Name Roulette - Jane

The Jane name meaning originates from Hebrew and The Bible, as the feminization derived of the name John, meaning of "God is gracious." Its popularity can be traced to the 16th century when it was used by the aristrocracy as an alternative for the name Joan, which was considered more common. Today, the names Jane and Joan tend to alternate in popular usage. As a standalone given name for a girl, Jane is not a particularly popular consideration by expectant parents.
