Meaning:God is gracious
Jeanette is a girl’s name of French origin. This title, the feminine version of Jean, means “God is gracious.” Both of these names come from the English John, the biblical name first appearing in the Old Testament. Whether you choose to raise her following faith or not, her softly-spoken name and its humble meaning can remind Jeanette of her spiritual place in this world. With the typical -ette ending of feminine French names, maybe she will be inspired by the many academic and artistic greats that have hailed from this rich culture.
