There seems to be at least one other Jordis around, an American musician named Jordis Unga. This may be where your grandchild's parents found the name.
I suspect that it's an altered form of Jordan
, perhaps designed to make a feminine name out of the masculine Jordan
. It also reminds me of Jadis, which is the name of the White Witch in C.S. Lewis
' "Narnia" books. Jordis may be an alteration of Jordan
which is meant to sound like Jadis, an alteration of Jade
