"I like my name. It's a little different especially the spelling. Most people tend to want to call me Janet, even when I've told them my name. A few minutes pass and suddenly they think it's Janet. I'm 71. I always have to spell it for people, and even when they see the spelling, they are not always sure how to pronounce it. My father chose the name because he liked a singer named Jeanette McDonald.but added an n for some reason to my name. Mother named the boys and Dad named the girls." Nov. 11, 2019:

"Jeannette is my sisters name. She was born in 1968. I have NEVER met anyone who spells it this was and my mom will tell you today that she is so proud of her choice in that name. It is very rare but I think it has a regal sound to it. If I ever have a daughter I'm going to name her this." Mar. 26, 2009:
"This was my grandmother's name. She was born in 1921 to a mother who was from Paris France and a father from Bohemia Germany. She passed away this year. She was very proud of her name and the French spelling of it. She was a beautiful, athletic and strong woman. I always thought it was a grand name and wished I had been named after her.
I also had a friend who was born in 1960 named Jeannette." Feb. 3, 2008:
"I am 25 years old and i've only met 1 Jeannette who spells it with 2 n's and 2 t's in my life time. I of course like to shorten it because I don't really like my name. I definately don't think it's as popular as it states but I do believe it has died out." Nov. 22, 2007:
