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
She WA born to a poor French family.
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.
Jeanne d'Arc had a sister Catherine; and three brothers named Pierre, Jean, and Jacquemin.
The names of her grandparents are unknown.
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).
