French female equivalent of the male French name Jean, the French form of John. The English names Jane and Jean, synonymous with each other in Scotland, have been derived from the Old French Jehane/Jehanne, modern French Jeanne.

Jeanne is also found in English-speaking communities as a spelling variant of Jean/Jane.
