Do you really think Jane is the best translation for Ioana? In Romanian it is the female version of John. I suspect that Joan might be a closer translation. After all the french Jean D'Arc is translated as Joan of Arc in English.

In French, it is "Jeanne d'Arc". "Jean" would be a man.

I would go with Johanna myself, but I agree that names should not be translated.

en français : Jeanne achete un canape et deux fauteuils, Sorry for the accent grave on achete.my keyboard is in Spanish and doesn't have the french grave and circonflexe accents ( only the cédille and the aigu). Cumpara is similar to compra ( del verbo comprar) in Spanish. Romanian is quite easy when you speak fluently the 4 major Latin languages: French-Spanish-Italian -Portuguese and have studied Latin . The only problems arise with the words of Slavic and Turkish origin. I like your language. Romania is, unfortunately, the only Balkan country(with Albania) i never visited for business. I really don't remember why ! Now I am too old ( 78) and I live in South America since 1992. I don't want to travel anymore. I have done it for 53 years around the planet.I'm fed up !
