Joanne, a popular female given name, is a variation of Joanna, which has Greek and Hebrew roots and means "God is generous". It is a feminine form of John, originally derived from the Hebrew name Yochanan, meaning "God is gracious". The name has been around for decades and has a vintage appeal that your little one can grow into. It is etymologically related to the names Hannah, Anna, Anne, and Ann, which are also derived from the Hebrew word "grace". The origin of the name Joanne can be traced back to the Hebrew name Yochanan, which means "God is gracious". It was later adopted by Latin and French languages as Johanne, and eventually evolved into the English version, Joanne.
