It is my name.
I have met more dogs named Jedda than I have people. I think this is due to some Australian's racist attitudes towards Aboriginal people.
Most older Australians remember the film & I guess they thought it a pretty name but only worthy of their pet.
It has gained some popularity.
When I've meet people from Saudi Arabia they've assumed I may have Middle Eastern ancestory & explained the meaning of Female Ancestor, similar to Grand Mother.
My daughter’s name is Jedda.....she is beautiful and creative and sweet and a bit wild and her name suits her so much! People love it and we are so happy we chose this special name for her!
