what is wron with the name jane?

leCodgy Sat 07-Jul-07 18:44:48

My middle name is Jane too. I also missed the thread. Though I do think it's a pretty boring name.

msappropriate Sat 07-Jul-07 18:47:46

I used to think it was a classic but it has all but disappeared.

leCodgy Sat 07-Jul-07 18:48:18

I don't mind Jane but Jayne is Poncey.

Nothing wrong with Jane...

msappropriate Sat 07-Jul-07 18:50:40

The oddest thing is when someone assumes that you spell it with a y when that would be the far less common spelling.

JeremyJayneVile Sat 07-Jul-07 18:54:28

Yes, it is faaaar less common with a Y [looking down my nose emoticon]

I'm Jane too
Hi! Its SUCH a boring name tho!

msappropriate Sat 07-Jul-07 18:59:44

its less common as in frequency but my dear old mum thought with a was a very commmon spelling (as in lower class). Ive always like the name and all names are boring when you know more that two of them.

There were three Jane's in my maths class. We all used to sit together, to buy ourselves time when the teacher called on us for an answer. "Oh, sorry sir, thought you meant the other Jane ..."

It's my middle name too - very dull, could have done without it

Wheelybug Sat 07-Jul-07 20:40:44

my middle name too. dull. but have long first name and had complicated maiden name so wasn't too bad in the big picture (and probably why it was chosen).

vixma Sat 07-Jul-07 20:52:36

I don't know, but my name is longer used? bizzarre.

I was meant to be Lara after Dr Zhivago...
However my mum was sleepy after being induced and having me delivered via forceps.
Cue first visitor my VERY pink frilly paternal auntie who had 6 daughters - 3 sets id twins.
Saw me newly born all a slumber and said
Let's call her Melanie Louise
My mum woke up from said coma and barked
No her names... erm
Nuff said

Tigi Sat 07-Jul-07 21:29:15

<peers tentatively in, whispers 'it's nothing personal, I just hate mine' then creeps back, chastened to her gin and tonic>
