The history is interesting. I didn't know it used to be more popular than Jenny.

I didn’t like this name before, but ever since I heard of the association with Jennie Kim I’ve liked it quite a lot. :-)

I prefer this spelling over Jenny. I also like the association with Jennie Kim.

I’m a Jennie. Just Jennie. I was named after my great-aunt. I always joke by saying my family was just too poor to give me the whole name “Jennifer”.

Growing up, people mispronouncing my name was a common occurrence. I guess the “ie” threw them off, so during roll call I would sometimes be called Genie, Jeanne, and even Jimmy. I started going by Jen when I entered high school. Other than the annoyance of mispronunciations, the name just started to feel childish and cutesy, and ‘Jen’ was a more mature and better fit for me.

One famous bearer is Kim Jennie (it's a Korean name, so her family name is Kim and her given name is Jennie. In other languages she might be called Jennie Kim), a South Korean singer and rapper.

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 Spring is the main character in the book The Face on the Milk Carton, although she thought her name was Janie Johnson growing up.

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.

Jennie Elizabeth Eisenhower is the eldest child of Julie Nixon Eisenhower (daughter of the late President Richard Nixon) and David Eisenhower (grandson of the late President Dwight Eisenhower). She's also a fledgling actress, appearing briefly in the movie 'Mona Lisa Smile'.

Jeanette Jerome, Lady Randolph Churchill, known exclusively as Jennie, was the mother of Sir Winston Churchill.

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!

Actress Jennie Garth (Kelly on Beverly Hills 90210) uses this form of the name.

Jennie Garth's given name is Jennifer Eve Garth. I think Brenda is prettier!
