English and Scottish spelling variant of Jenny [q.v.].

In Scotland Jessie is the more usual pet name or synonym for Janet, but several correspondents [AB, JMcF, and others] have found cases in Scotland of a person known as Jennie having been baptised as Janet.

Another correspondent [JMacG], researching in Scotland, sent us a note concerning "... a legal document circa 1780 concerning a Janet, who undersigned Jennie".
