"My name is Jennie. It is not short for Jennifer, from my understanding, if my name was spelled with a 'y' at the end, Jenny, then it might have been short for Jennifer. Otherwise, names spelled like mine, Jennie, are not shortened forms." Jun. 4, 2017:
"My name is Jennie which is short for Jennifer. My mom wanted to name me Ginnie after a doll back in the 60's I guess cause I was born in 1969. However, my dad hated Ginnie and Jennie was the compromise. People always assume I am Jeanie when they see it spelled and try to pronounce it. Don't know why the ie thing at the end instead of y confuses people so much." Jan. 2, 2012:
"My sister's name is Jennie and people are forever calling her Jeannie or spelling it the wrong way. Not many people think it's short for Jennifer, but when asked it's a straight out answer "No it's just Jennie, thanks".... This is also my Mom's middle name and I love it. The name suits my sister really well as she is very spunky. So far I have not met another Jennie, although I am not sure if my sister has....." Aug. 25, 2011:
"My name is Jennie and people always spell it wrong every time I love for those name plates they always spell it with a y instead of ie which is unqiue because my husband name is Ronnie. I am always surpise when I meet someone who spells their name like me. It is 2009 and I don't think people used this name a lot anymore" May. 20, 2009:
"My name is Jennie, and i love it. Many people think its short for Jennifer, and sometimes when people see the spelling they call me Jeannie and i have to tell them its Jen-E. I know many people named Jennifer that go by Jenny, but no one just named Jennie. So I'm very happy my name is a little different and unique. I also really like the name since it was also my great-grandma's." Mar. 17, 2007:
"I wrote a story for school and I named the main character Jennie. Originally I thought it was a name that I made up because I didn't like the spelling Jenny so I wrote it with an IE because I thought it looked better. I'm delighted to know its not made up.Anyways my name is Jessica and I recognize the name Jennie as an individual name from Jennifer.I really do love this name.So Pretty!" Feb. 17, 2007:
"My mom's name is jennie. Not many people think it is short for jennifer. I just LOVE the name! And it is not just because my mom is named that." Jan. 28, 2007:

"My name is Jennie and I love it. I've only ever met one other person with the same name. I hate it when people assume that my name is Jennifer and they even ask me if I've looked at my Birth Certificate to know. Uh, yeah, thanks... it's my name, of course I know it's JUST Jennie." Jul. 14, 2006:
"My oldest daughter's name is Jennie. NOT Jennifer, but Jennie. She is named after my oldest sister, Jennie who was named after our maternal grandmother. Most people think her given name is Jennifer or they spell it Jenny. We just love it and it fits her perfectly!" Jun. 11, 2006:
"This is a family name, and currently my great aunt and cousin are named Jennie. I love the name, and plan to carry on the tradition. Yes, people assume it is a nickname derived from Jennifer. I personally don't like Jennifer, only Jennie. Having "ie" on the end makes it unique." Nov. 19, 2005:
"My name is Jennie, and it's not short for Jennifer. It's just Jennie. I think my name is a very unique one! I was named after my grandmother so I have an old fashion one. People often spell it, Jenny, or Ginny. The correct way to say it is- Jen-E. I have only known 2 people in my life with the name Jennie (no Jennifer) spelled with an "IE". My grandmother who I was named after, and my classmate who's mother was my nurse (she was pregnant at the time) when I was born and apparently she liked my name and used it for her baby girl! I don't know many people with my name, that's why I like it so much! I love being the only, Jennie Melissa, that I know!" Jun. 24, 2005:
"I think its a super name (of course I'm biased). The only problem is that others sometimes assume it is short for Jennifer, which its not, necessarily. I think its a lovely, old-fashioned English name." Jun. 8, 2005:

"My name is Jennie, and I have alot of trouble with people spelling and pronouncing it. It's not short for Jennifer or Virginia. I have been married for 30 years and my father in law still pronounces it Jeanie. It's a great old fahioned name." Jun. 29, 2006:

"My grandmother who was born in the 1880's was named Jennie. I think it is a beautiful name. It is an old-fashioned American name. Winston Churchill's mother was an American woman named Jennie. There is even a book about her." Jan. 17, 2018:
"My daughter's name is Jennie named after her Great Grandmother. She has never met another person with her name and she is 13. I love it it's unique, simple and beautiful." Jan. 17, 2009:
"It's spelt wrong 95% of the time. It's been pronounced wrong regularly since I started school, particularly by teachers. It also annoys me when people assume my name is Jennifer. I've met plenty of people with the same name but only one other person that spells it this way." Jan. 19, 2008:
