Where did it come from?
The 1942 musical Orchestra Wives, a movie about the behind-the-scenes drama that occurs when a swing band (and all their wives) go out on tour together.
The band’s vocalist was a character named Jaynie Stevens, played by actress Lynn Bari — one of the most popular pin-up girls of WWII.
The band itself was the the real-life Glenn Miller band, led by Glenn Miller, but the name in both cases was changed to “Gene Morrison” (to retain the monogram).
Do you like the spelling of Jaynie, or do you prefer a different spelling of the name?
