Her name in French was "Jeanne D'Arc", or as we say in English "Joan of Arc", Arc being the town from which… she came. replay Sep. 14, 2008: The above answer is incorrect; d'Arc was her father's last name. Joan was born and raised in Domremy, France. By the way, her name was Jehanne. Joan is the English version of the French name Jehanne. joan of arc's french name is Jehanne d'Arc. her fathers last name was d'arc and that's where her last name comes from. her first name Jehanne is pronounced jehn and is translated as joan in English
her weakness was her family
Her best friend's name was Hauviette. I'm not sure if that's her best friend.
King Charles Vii (the seventh) of France. It is intersting to note that France had Two Queens, one a Queen Mother at the time of Joan of Arc. There WA sonly one regnant King, …however, and that is Charles Vii. the memory jogger is that the word Charles itself has seven letters! There is some evidence that Joan named her Horse in his HOnor, which He may not of approved, of she used the diminutive (Charlie) Chalrie was a Black steed. Various types of Horse Armor were used in this period as well as decorative banner/blankets with the French Blue color.
Jeanne d' Arc's enemies were the enemies of France - the English. She lived in the end of the 15th century AD/ CE and she was proclaimed Saint by the Catholic church later. …She suffered a martyr's death on fire.
she was in a church
Joan had 3 brothers and one sister. Her siblings were named: Jacqemin, Jean, Pierre and Catherine.
Joan of Arc never had a surname. In official documents she only every went by her first name, the title d'Arc (of Arc) was only added later. After Charles VII granted Joan…'s family a noble title they took the title du Lays. The most accepted surname is d'Arc. Hence the full name Jeanne (Jehanne) d'Arc It is believed that the maid of Orleans ( Jeanne D"arc or reasonable variations such as Jehane, spelling hardly an exact science in Medieval times) was her real name. Jeanne had, according to some sources a sister named Catherine, which is a good French name. ( several Saintes by that name of French Origin and also the actress Catherine Deneuve) Once a Knight is enough. Her sister did not take up the Armor and sword bit, as far as is known. Joan's name was not Joan, 'nor did she come from a village named Arc. Joan is the English translation of Jehanne. Jehanne's name was recorded as Darc, Tart, Dark, Darx, or Tarc. A historian mistook her name as d'Arc, meaning "of Arc" many years ago. The name stuck. We cannot be sure of Joan's real last name, as Last name's were used rarely in the 1400's. And, just a note, Joan was from a place called Domremy.
As she was a female knight, Joan was awarded a patent of arms- what is popularily called a crest or coat of arms. this was worn on the front of the skirt portion of her …feminine armor. the design was enclosed in a stylized diamond, indicating a Lady (Diamonds are for Heifers!) a good memory jogger. The arms or insignia proper exist in two variations the colors are Blue and White. (in Both) a sword placed naked- that is exposed, pointed upwards, flanked by two fleurs-de-lis (all white) on a blue background and above the sword- here is where there are differences- either a crown which represents service to the Crown (of France) or in a variant a sort of Silver Ring- possibly similar to the (brass rings) originally used for target practice in the Middle Ages. These are her arms. there is some controversy whether she wore the cross of Lorraine- with two horizontal bars, on her breastplate with a white vest sort of like a T-shirt (forgive me for analogy) worn over her armor, with this design. But the two fleurs de lis the upward pointing sword and crown- or ring design are basic to the heraldic arms of Dame Jeanne D"arc. there you have it. The banner she carried with God blessing the French royal emblem, a fleur-de-lis also.
Isabelle ,which is a variant of Elizabeth.
Isabelle or Isabeau, the name is the same as ( Elizabeth) . Joan of Arc's mothers name was Isabelle (English) or Isabeau (French) Joan was the daughter of Jacques d'Arc… and Isabelle Romée in Domrémy, a village which was then in the duchy of Bar (later annexed to the province of Lorraine and renamed Domrémy-la-Pucelle).

After her charred body was pulled from the ashes, it was burned two additional times. They then tossed the remaining ashes rather unceremoniously into the Seine river- so …no relics survived.
In Joan of Arc
What is in St. Joan of Arc's Reliquary? According to the site below there is no reliquary box. All of St. Joan's first class relics are now destroyed or lo…st forever. Joan's ashes were gathered together and burned a second time and the remaining dust was tossed into a river to prevent the gathering of relics. All of St. Joan's reliable second class relics have been destroyed, such as the clothing and armor she wore. What remains is disputed and remains in the hands of junk dealers passing themselves off as dealers in antiquities. Three of St. Joan's letters remain at the locations to which they were addressed. Also, a few statues and crucifices before which she prayed still exist in the churches and chapels where they were displayed. These are the only reliable third class relics of St. Joan of Arc that exist, and even then, due to restoration efforts, their authenticity may have degraded somewhat. For example, art restorers would have been hired to create really good fakes of these works so the originals could be transported elsewhere. Thus, St. Joan of Arc has neither a reliquary nor anything to place in it. What she had was either destroyed when she was killed, or destroyed during wars and revolutions, or had been repaired or replaced to a condition of unreliability.
Joan of Arc's parents names were Jacques d' Arc and his wife Isabelle.
