"I love my name. It is unique and I have received many compliments. I love that very few people have this name since it can become confusing when you have five or more people in the same room with the same name. I have only met 3 other Jeanette's in my life and have received many compliments. Yes, sometimes people mispronounce or misspell my name. However, that is true for most names." Oct. 26, 2018:
