User comments for Janet (Meaning / History Only)

Arabian meaning Heaven.

How could it mean heaven in Arabic? That is very odd.

Janet first became widely used as a separate name instead of just a diminutive in Scotland.

In the 1851 census of the United Kingdom, there were 101,942 women listed as "Janet" in Scotland and only 3,807 in England, at a time when England's total population was 17.9 million and Scotland's only 2.9 million.

In the 1850 U.S. census there were only 1,338 Janets in a total non-slave population of about 20 million.
