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.
