Meaning & History

Variant of Jynx, or else directly from the American English word meaning "a charm, a spell", which is ultimately derived from the same source (Greek iynx "wryneck", a bird used in witchcraft and divination). This was the name of Halle Berry's character in the James Bond film 'Die Another Day' (2002), in which case it was a diminutive of Giacinta.
