This actually looks appealing, fresh and cute, and not as much like a nickname for Jennifer, compared to Jenny. I like Jennifer and Jenny, but they have been so overused that it's hard to appreciate them. This is sweet.

Jennie is my given name. There are few problems. 1) People assume it's spelled Jenny and misspell it. 2) People assume it is Jeannie and mispronounce it. 3) People who have seen movie Forrest Gump will call you Jenn-AY.

This spelling is cute and fresh. I prefer it to Jenny. But I'm a bit tired of the name Jennifer. I like just Jennie.

My name! My high school graduating class had over 800 and yet I was the only Jennie. (Plenty of Jenny and Jennifers though) The spelling comes from one of my moms ancestors and I love it.
