Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:God is gracious
Though Germanic and Hebrew in origin, Jolene is a feminine name that comes courtesy of the United States. A blend of Jo and the suffix "-lene," Jolene came to beguile the world through Dolly Parton's acclaimed country hit. Synonymous with a powerful seductress, all emerald eyes and fiery hair, it's no wonder Jolene has endured as a title for incomparable beauty. Its roots link it to the German and Hebrew Johannes, meaning "God is gracious." Here's to baby proving they are far more than a pretty face.
