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!
My name is also Jedda for every Jedda on here to read! I am also a daughter, and people like to think of me as energetic, friendly, passionate, and creative. I have NEVER met people with my name so that would be awesome if I had the chance to meet someone with that name! (my instagram is itxjedda :) )
