Meaning:God has answered; Frenchman
Since its first appearance in the prize-winning novel Precious Bane by Mary Webb in 1924, Jancis is a girl’s name that has seen itself etched in the hearts of many. However, it’s of contested origins. While in Hebrew, it’d mean “God has answered,” Jancis may as well be a modern blend of Jan and the Latin name Francis meaning “Frenchman.” Either way, naming your little one Jancis is one of the most endearing ways to ensure that the heavens always lend an ear to them!
