Joanne means "God is Gracious" and apparently is of Hebrew origin. I know it is a variation of Joan, which is a variation of John. My dad's name is John, conveniently.

Like Joanne, Jan is a form of John and I have seen it as "God's gracious gift".

Katie is a name of Greek origin meaning "one of purity" or "beloved".

How did everyone get their name?

I got mine for two reasons... one being that one of my dad's favorite movies was John Wayne's "Sons of Katie Elder" and two is that on the way to the hospital he saw a license plate that said "KATIE" (which wasn't popular at the time). So he knew that's what he wanted to name me.

My name is Lesley, which is gaelic and means "dweller of the grey fort".........I don't know what to make of that. It's kind of a bland meaning, I think. Oh well.
I was named that because.............well, I was SUPPOSED to be named Nicole. They had it all picked out and even told everyone that they were naming me Nicole. Then, in the hospital after I was born, my mum was looking at birth announcements to try and figure out how she wanted to word mine.....there were SO MANY Nicoles, that she said no way to that name. My dad suggested Lesleah, which my mom later learned had been the name of one of his old girlfriends (lol), and my mom said, "well, I don't like LesLEAH, but I like Lesley". And the rest is history............

Heather, which means "flowering". My dad knew, way before I was born, that he'd have a blonde haired, blue-eyed girl, and that she MUST be named Heather. My hair turned red later.

I think it's English, and it's also the name of a plant with little flowers.
