# What does Jane Doe mean?

Never Shout Never (Christofer Drew); he has a song named "Jane Doe" and It's been bugging me forever... What does Jane Doe actually mean. The song was about someone he didn't know, so it's not the chick's name. So what does it mean? Better yet... what does "jane" mean alone and "doe" mean alone?

Relevance

It's a name for a girl or woman whose real name is not known to the speaker. It can also refer to any random female from among the population of a town or country or the whole world. Or in a more abstract way, it can refer to women generally, when contrasting them with men. There's a similar name, "John Doe" that applies to an unknown or random man, or men in general.

"Jane" and "Doe" are just ordinary names. I don't know if there was a reason for choosing them, though Jane is a fairly common name, and so suggests someone ordinary or average.

What Does Jane Mean

Jane Doe is a female who's identity is unknown. It is commonly used among murder and mystery books or shows. Hope this helped.

It means someone without a known identity. The song is called that because he doesn't know this girl or her name, so she is referred to as "Jane Doe." Males are referred to as "John Doe."
