I think this name suggests someone who is really intelligent, thoughtful and quiet.

This reminds me of the Christmas carol "Bring a torch, Jeannette Isabella. Bring a torch, to the cradle run. It is Jesus, good folk of the village. Christ is born, and Mary's calling. Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the mother! Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the son!"

Jeannette Walls is the author of The Glass Castle. I had to read this book for my college English class and I loved it. I reccomend the book to everyone.

This name is not very common, which I like. Also, it seems more suitable for a child or young woman than the English form, Janet.

Jennette is derived from Jeannette, and Jennette McCurdy is the co-star of the hit Nickelodeon show, iCarly. She also released her debut country single, "So Close" in March of 2009.

This name is so pretty, unfortunately I don't know any Jeannettes. I find it sad that this name is no longer in the top 1000, you'll be hard pressed to find one. I think this is a great choice for a daughter, and though I wouldn't choose it myself, I would highly recommend it for someone who is considering it. Jennie is a cute nickname too :)

The pronunciation is more like what the first poster said. Zha-NET is what I would assume to be the French pronunciation. Both are very pretty.
