Meaning & Origins

Like Jane and Joan, a medieval variant of Old French Je(h)anne. Towards the end of the Middle Ages this form became largely confined to Scotland. In the 20th century it became more widely used in the English-speaking world and enjoyed a period of great popularity, but it is now out of fashion. Among numerous well-known and influential bearers are the British novelists Jean Plaidy (Eleanor Hibbert, 1910–93) and Jean Rhys (Ella Gwendolen Rees Williams, 1894–1979), British actress Jean Simmons (b. 1929), and American-born actress Jean Seberg (1938–79). It is also found as a variant spelling of the masculine name Gene.
94th in the U.S.
English (Midlands): nickname for a thin person, from Middle English twigge ‘twig’, ‘shoot’. Since the word occurs only late in the Old English period and was initially confined to northern dialects, it may be a borrowing from Old Norse.
