Names

Jeanette=Variant of "Jean" with origins in Celtic/Gaelic means "God is gracious."    Also related to "John" meaning "the grace of mercy of the Lord."

(So, you COULD say `Robin Hood & Jeanette walkin' through the forest.')


Traits: People think of Jeanette as a cute blonde whose blue eyes sparkle with fun. She's smart, outgoing, romantic, and well liked. No wonder she enjoys life so much!
Famous people with this name: actresses Jeanette MacDonald, Jeanette (A Duke for a Day) Loff, Jeanette (Orson Welles's Macbeth) Nolan, Jeanette (Safecracker) Sterke; author Jeanette Winterson

OR people think of Jeanette as a medium sized brunette with brown eyes and an off beat sense of humor.  (I added this last bit.)

Atwood: Saxon names referred to the bearer’s estate or place of residence using the word “atte” (“at the”), which has survived in surnames such as Atwood, Atwell and Atwater. Continental European names often employed the particles des, d’, de, de la, de las, della, del, di, du, da, van, vande, van der, von and ten — all of which mean from, at, or of.

So, if I'm feeling a little obnoxious could I be "God is a little gracious at the woods" ?
