Now universally taken as a pet form of Jennifer. In fact, this name existed during the Middle Ages as a pet form of Jean. It is often used independently. Among many well-known bearers are the Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (originally Johanna Lind, 1820–87), the British racehorse trainer Jenny Pitman (b. 1946), and the British actress Jenny Agutter (b. 1952).
Chinese 司徒: variant of Situ. An unusual name, both for containing two Chinese characters and for its spelling. Many early Chinese immigrants came from Taishan, only about a hundred miles from Canton but speaking a different dialect. Soo Hoo is a Taishan form of Situ.
