In 2018, 86 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Jennie* who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 735th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

I like this as a nickname for Jennifer, though I think if someone wants to spice it up, they could go with Jenner and call them Jennie if they really wanted to think of something different, like instead of Maximilian you could go for Maxwell.

My name is Jennifer. Most of my life I've gone by Jennie and I spell it J e n n i e. I do get annoyed when someone asked me my name and they automatically spell it Jenny without checking with me or they question me and ask me but it's really Jennifer isn't it. My husband's great grandmother was born in the late 1800 and her name was spelled Jennie. Lastly people constantly call me Jeannie, like Genie in a bottle. It makes no sense to me at all because there's a distinct difference in the sound of the name Genie and Jennie but somehow that happens and I just wish people would make the effort to pay more attention because I always try to pronounce and spell everyone else's name correctly.

Hi, I'm Jennie! I was named for my great-grandmother Jennie. I am very proud of my name. It is a full name. It is not short for Jennifer, Virginia, or thanks to "Mrs Doubtfire" Euphagenia.

If someone sees my my name they pronounce it Jeanie. I have no "a" until you get to my middle name.

If they spell it then it's Jenny or Jeni.

I try very hard to say and spell others' names correctly because of all the years of issues I have had with my own.

Jennie is such a cute name. As a full name and a nickname, it just looks better than Jenny. It's technically also the original spelling. Despite the fact that it ends in -ie, I think it would suit either a baby, a child, an adult, and an older woman very well as full name. As a nickname, I think Jennifer is a little dated but for Genevieve I like it a lot, since Gennie/Genny looks like it would be pronounced differently. The only problem would be the spelling, unfortunately a lot of people would probably think its spelled Jenny and short for Jennifer.

Jennie is such an adorable name. It's a lot prettier and less common than Jenny, which is usually a nickname for Jennifer anyways. I personally like Jennie as a name on its own, as that's its original usage. For some reason Jennifer never really sounded like a name to me, but I adore Jennie!

There's a lovely 1948 fantasy film called Portrait of Jennie. The title character, Jennie Appleton, is played by actress Jennifer Jones.
I prefer the spelling "Jennie" to the modern spelling, "Jenny." It's cuter and more unique.

I prefer this over Jenny, but it's too short for a real name. Cute nickname though.

My great-great-grandmother's name was Jennie. I'm not sure if Jennie was short for Jane or Jennifer, but either way I guess it's cute. I still prefer Jen or Jenna as nicknames for Jennifer, though.

When my sister Jennifer (who is in her mid-20's) was elementary age she chose to spell her name this way. Probably because you don't see it nearly as often.

I like the unique way of spelling Jennie. The other way is nice too, but I always like names that are unique. I know a Jennie that is bold, sporty, and fun to be around, and it fits her very nicely!
