No, it’s not Johanna and certainly not Joann. Why does everyone want to add letters or drop syllables? I know 3 syllables is hard but my mother hated you and wanted to make your jaw hurt.
While we’re at it, please don’t start singing that stupid Kool & the Gang song. For one thing it creeps me out to have people I’ve just met or even co-workers tell me they love me. Telling me that “it just popped into your head” does not make it any less inappropriate. For another, that song came out when I was 8 so I’ve had to hear it all my life. I don’t even let my husband sing it to me. so I’m really not going to let you.
No, you may not call me Jo, Jojo, Joey, Joanie, Joan, or Josey. Why? Because…
My Fucking Name is Joanna.
