God is gracious
Could the extremely popular “Fixer Upper” star Joanna Gaines have anything to do with this first name’s on-the-rise popularity? Maybe so. This baby name, the feminine form of John, dates to the Middle Ages, but it’s been in consistent use at least since the 19th century and a top 100 name in the 1980s. It’s easy to see why: Joanna has a gentle, romantic sound, and it’s not trendy or flowery. And sometimes parents do play favorites: Joanna is far more common than sisters Joanne and Johanna.
