  1. Jane is a family name. My husband and I loved that it was a classic name that we really didn’t hear that often. It also was the only name we could agree on haha!

  2. Jane is our rainbow baby so we chose Jane because it means God’s Gracious Gift or God is
    Gracious. We choose Bella for beautiful…
    Jane Bella meaning God’s Gracious Beautiful Gift

  3. We chose the name Jane because it means “God is gracious” and we wanted to have a name that had a beautiful meaning.
    And the name Jane itself is short and sweet.
    Also, this name is the name of one of my favorite fictional characters, Jane Eyre, which was written by Charlotte Bronte.
    And Jane is the name of one of my favorite authors Jane Austen.
