Comments and insights on the name Jillene: | Edit

My name is Jillene, and I love my name! I am a 19-year-old female, and the only thing I dislike about my name is that people always mispronounce it when they read it. They ALWAYS say "Jillian" for some reason. I pronounce my name as "Jil-leeeen". I have met one person with the same name; she was an older lady, and she spelled hers "Gilene". My middle name is Elaine. I actually just go by Jill, though. :)

Personal experiences with the name Jillene: | Edit

Jillene Ringle, now deceased, was a performer who wrote and performed one-woman shows in Pittsburgh and (I think) at the Delaware shore. She was great! I learned the phrase "back in the day" from one of her shows, and the shows were about growing up in a close-knit neighborhood. She addressed the audience directly after a song, saying "Do you have any idea how much fun it is being me?" She died quickly of cancer about five years ago. I miss her.

I was told Jill'Ene meant (little turtle little dove) by my mother who named me 41 years ago and that it was a Indian name! My Grandfather was full blooded American Indian and my mom grew up Picking Cotton on the Indian reservations in California in the 1950's i have done research on my name and still have not found any truth to this.
