    The worst thing about the name:
    Everything! Its right up there with all the other bogan lene names. No one can pronounce it properly or spell it. First name Jo last name Lean. Thats always a classic. Having to listen to the song every single time you meet someone new.

    I used to want a nice simple name like Jane or Anne but I like having a different name now. Said the right way it actually sounds quite classy. Besides no one knows the song these days so I dont have to listen to everyones Dolly Parton reditions anymore!
