Personal experiences with the name Jeannette: | Edit

My name is Jeannette. Hard name to spell when you are a kid. People get the spelling wrong all the time, they at least omit one n. I got my nickname Netti in Kindergarten and I always loved it. Now in my 30s I am using Jeannette instead of my nickname.
