Joahn's

I'm not sure why I took this photo...there are a number of these little shops in strip malls in Ocala. But I think the reason had to do with the name, "Joahn." I've never known anyone named "Joahn." Joan, JoAnn, Joanne, JoAnne are all names that I've seen. "Joahn" did catch my attention, though.

Interesting spelling. I wonder if you feel like the woman on the door when you leave there? ha ha. Enjoy your Sunday.

Halcyon said...

Maybe that's the way New Yorkers spell it. Sounds like they do a lot in this shop!!!

Bibi said...

Actually, at first I read "Johan". I'm not so fond of names that are odd spellings...but then, some people are, so...!

Joy said...

If I didn't know any better, I might say the owner is Filipino. Filipinos love to insert 'h' in names that don't usually have an h :-)

Have a great Monday!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

Or maybe it was the mud-flap girl on the door ;-)

Hmmm Jacob, the name caught your attention or the red vixen image in the window perhaps? Have a good Sunday!

sounds rather lah-te-dah. good, good news about your daughter.

Hilda said...

I echo Joy's comment. The owner does sound Filipino. :D

Which reminds me of a little spelling problem someone had with my name. Here, Gilda is also pronounced Hilda, rather than with a hard G. I was dictating over the phone, so I said "Hilda with an H." The document came to me with my name spelled HILDAH. Hahahahaha!

And that (attention) is the reason why. MB

I like that stylized red thing. Er, I mean woman.

It is an unusual spelling. A teacher's nightmare trying to keep all the spellings straight. LOL

Daryl said...

I bet she's Asian .. and the concept of permanent make up intrigues me ...

B SQUARED said...

To be honest, the front door caught my attention.

Lois said...

That is an interesting name. My favorite part of this picture is that gorgeous blue sky!

JM said...

I believe it's the dutch name for John; if so you pronounce it like 'Eeohan' (or something of the kind)... :-)

JM said...

Are you back to Ocala, Jacob? If so this means your daughter is OK, right? I really hope so.

Francisca said...

I was going to tell you the same thing Joy and Hildah did... :-D ... And speaking of giving name spellings over the phone, you'd be amazed how many people can't spell San Francisco... I typically get a LOOOONNG pause when I say spelled like SF with an A at the end... Get strong again, Jacob. My regards to your family.
