Trump and the Roots of Freedom

by totalgooched

​So it looks like Europeans have hit their ‘Gates of Vienna’ moment yet again, in their eternal quest for freedom of association. Europeans have a tendancy to never notice how bad things actually are until the very last moment. Like the crusades before, the Ottoman invasion or the battle for America against the native indians, Europeans will believe everything is fine until the problem is in their face, and then, and only then, can something like the election of Donald Trump happen (a much metered reaction when compared to those of the past). Horus the Avenger (@eurorabbit), in his ‘follow the white rabbit’ podcast has made good analysis of this phenomenon.
But another ‘angle’ (pun intended) that needs to be acknowledged in this European struggle is the almost exclusively Anglo aspect of the fight for freedom. Because it appears that it is only Anglo’s who really care about freedom. 

The founding fathers of the American nation were heavily influenced by the English philosophers of their day, and pretty much all of them were either Anglos themselves, or loyal to the English Crown up until the time for revolution came about. 

They recognised something that had been inadvertantly taken away from them (through no fault of the English, who, short sightedly, had lost their truth in the quest for empire) that had always been afforded to those in their colonial homeland, England, and that was freedom. So, they set about trying to achieve a more pure version of that always hypothetical freedom within their new homeland, America.

If we examine the history of Europe, and the world at large, no other nation has had such an innate feel for freedom as the English. The Germans and their northern relatives, and the Italians and their mediterranian kin were always happy to be dictated to, and if today one was to slowly remove their little fought for freedoms i suspect they would barely notice the difference (see Rome, aka the EU 1.0). As for the rest of the world, the concept of freedom seems almost alien to them.

The reasons for this are, i propose, deeply instinctive, that is, there is a genetic component to the concept of freedom that other, less and less Anglic people, dont really understand the appeal, or necessity of.

We must also forget the weaponised lie that the English are either 1) a nation of immigrants, and 2) of Germanic origin, as both of these can be proven as false, creationed for the purpose of legitimising an illegitimate royalty, who are, of Germanic descent. The true history of the people of the British isles is far more esoteric than most know, and has been subject to political revision, but the truth still persists if one is inquisitive enough.

On the subject of innate behavioural traits, as is well known Donald Trump has Germanic roots. The nature of the German is to perfect that which already exists, to the point of absolute effectiveness. Their skill for efficiency is perhaps unmatched in any race. So their motorcars, whilst not being an invention of their own, are the best in the world because of their desire for perfection. They were able to ruthlessly administer national socialism to almost inhuman levels, gleefully adopting and implementing an essentially foreign political system to its logical conclusion of racial purity and technical and economic superiority. (Granted, the Germans have contributed a fair share to invention, particularly in warfare. The word ‘war’ in fact comes from the Germanic word ‘werran’ – to confuse. Still, it must be stated that all European nations have contributed massively to human enlightenment, but none have given the world concepts so life changing as the English). The Germans should not be hated for this ability to perfect, on the contrary, we should celebrate their skill, and utilise it by offering them our most brilliant ideas to get their teeth into.

Which brings us back to Trump. Being an American citizen of German origin (and therefore possessing Germanic faculties) Trump is able to recognise the qualities of English freedom, but is also able to see where it has gone wrong, and what could be done to reinstate those good qualities, and to make that system the most efficient it could be. Trump is going to attempt to do with freedom, ie. the English vision of liberty, what the national socialists tried to do to devotional bondage, ie. Italian Fascism.

Currently, what the left need to realise – and in this way they need to grow up and stop being such babies – is that history cannot step into the same river twice. Contrary to communist belief, history doesnt repeat itself, especially with an idea so disasterous as national socialism. Instead, the solid truths of ethno nationalism will be refined and reconfigured, hybridised with Anglo freedom, and become more sophisticated, as Europeans tend to do. And yes, this new movement will ultimately be good for Europeans, as it is the de facto evolution of nationalist thought, which is the natural state of high-spirited, enlightened human beings, such as Europeans.

So, in some ways, the left is correct in their accusation that Trump is literally Hitler, except this time round the ruthless efficiency will be for the good of America, and the world at large, when the power of European enlightenment is harnessed and administered under one ethnic flag, for the benefit of all.

This European revolution is an essentially Anglo revolution that doesnt just have its roots in Magna Carta, for there is a link even further back than that with the Molmutine laws put in place in the British Isles by Dunvallo Molmutius in 400 bc. It are these laws that distinguishes those people of the Isles from those of continental mainland Europe, which is still visible today in the fight for EU brexit, by the traditional English, Cymri and few Picts that remain (see the video below for the suppressed history of the people of the British Isles).

DNA drip-feeds truth about our origins

According to a new paper recently published ‘The modern European gene pool was formed when three ancient populations mixed within the last 7,000 years, Nature journal reports.’

Although hinting at a hybrid-origin, the following article is essentially a mix of speculation, biased data analysis and wishful thinking, along with a healthy dose of contradiction in order to cover up the BS.

So where did fair pigmentation in present-day Europeans come from? The farmer seems to be on her way there, carrying a gene variant for light skin that’s still around today.

“There’s an evolutionary argument about this – that light skin in Europe is biologically advantageous for people who farm, because you need to make vitamin D,” said David Reich.’

‘”It really does look like the indigenous West European hunter gatherers had this striking combination of dark skin and blue eyes that doesn’t exist any more,” Prof Reich told BBC News.’

Although we do not have the credentials to write a paper on it, the idea of blue-eyed people being both dark skinned and dark haired seems like a contradiction to the genetic data, which, for the last half a century has concluded that blue eyes, blonde hair and fair skin are all recessive alleles, that is, they are not dominant when mixed with dark hair, dark skin and brown eyes. For the recessive traits to be positively selected suggests the selection occurred over tens of thousands of years, and not just thousands. And where were these farmers farming? In the North Pole? At night? Because if the sun was anything like it is now, a farmer with pale skin would burn in the sun, dark skin being much more preferable to farming than the pale skin of modern Europeans. Besides, pale skin also has the ability to take on a tan, which suggests its origin may lay in a somewhat milder climate than Africa – or the Middle-East – can ever offer. For if the climate was similar all year round then pale skin would have been selected out, and all Europeans would be dark. So the origin of pale skin cant be Africa, and its probably not even Europe, it must be somewhere where the sun is not strong all year round, but is strong enough at some times of the year for a tan to be evolutionarily selected.

Yet another example of the apologist ‘Out of Africa’ theory being pushed by the cultural Marxists and their anthropological propagandists waging a secret war on all of our ancestors.

The 5ociety will continue to monitor the purposeful destruction of humanity.

For an alternative theory on the origin of white skin see our piece on Neoteny. There are other traits that arrived with modern humans which are more prominent or developed in Caucasians, which also hint at the enigmatic origin of this controversial skin-tone, please see this piece for more information Early Humans kept their chin up.

The Slaving of the Giants

by 5ocietyx

giant-humans-found-in-indiana-2 There are many reports of giants throughout history, both in religious texts such as the Bible and in folklore and myth, such as the story of Fionn MacCumhaill. Steven Quayle’s excellent log of all things giants GENESIS 6 GIANTS has many reports on the discovery of giant skeletons around the ancient world, ultimately suggesting these giants to be the Nephilim – the sons of God who fell upon the daughters of the Earth – in the book of Genesis.

In his extremely informative book Mutants: On the form, variety and errors of the human body, Armand Marie Leroi describes Aristotle’s observation of the effect that castration can have on an organism. “Nearly twenty-five centuries ago, while working on a remote Aegean island, Aristotle made an observation that was at once banal, beautiful and chilling.  ‘All animals,’ he wrote, ‘if operated on when they are young, become bigger and better looking their unmutilated fellows; if they be mutilated when full grown, they do not take on any increase of size… As a general  rule, mutilated animals grow to a greater length than the unmutilated.’ By ‘mutilation’ Aristotle meant castration. Hence the banality of his observation that merely repeated facts as well known to any fourth-century Greek farmer as to any modern one.. He had taken a barnyard commonplace, that gelded rams, stallion and cockerels are larger than intact animals..”

Two types, one tall, one short.

If we refer to the fossil record we can find two types of human forms, Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon. Researcher and psychologist Stan Gooch provided us with a sober theory about human origins, that we are in fact a hybrid of these two forms of primitive man. The morphology of both of these types differed enough for us to say that they were two separate species, one was a lot smaller than modern humans, and one was taller. you could say that to Neanderthal Cro-Magnon would have resembled a giant, and Gooch actually proposed that the Bible (or similar religious texts) are the written record of Neanderthal’s meeting with Cro-Magnon, preserved by us, human beings, the rightful heirs to those two previous legacies.

Cro-Magnon vs Neanderthal

Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman.

In the Welsh origin story of Brutus, founder of the Britons, his party of emigrants upon landing encounter only giants on the isles, whom they then proceed to chase down, fight and totally destroy.  These giants are clearly remnants of a previous race, who at this time existed only in the most isolated peninsulas of the European continent. They numbered so few they were easily eradicated by man. As stated before, Cro-Magnon was taller than humans, and had occupied Europe before humans, supplanting European Neanderthal before him, so it stands to reason that some members of the relic species Cro-Magnon could still have existed at the fringes of civilisation. it should be noted here that the tallest humans on Earth are in Denmark, Northern Europe, where giant myths are heavily prevalent.

 

Domestication.

Domestication of animals is believed to have begun prior to 33,000BCE, with the dog. But it would be fair to say that domestication of another kind would have taken place before this time, on a species much easier to control – humans. Slavery is said to be as old as humanity, and its not too much of a stretch of the imagination to see the control system in place today – such as our laws, codes of conduct or morals – is nothing more than the domestication of humans. Incidentally, Gooch proposed the actual hybridization event occurred around 35,000 years ago, in the approximate time frame during which domestication of animals began.

Egyptian depiction of domestication

Now, back to the meat and veg, so to speak.

 

Castration.

The practice of castration has persisted for thousands of years, with both domestic animals and humans. Arab slave traders, by far the most prolific and ambitious slavers ever, traded many castrated boys. ‘The Calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7,000 black eunuchs and 4,000 white eunuchs in his palace.”[129] The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys at the age of eight to twelve had their scrotum and penis completely amputated. Around 9 out of 10 bled to death during the procedure, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.’ Castration was also used by many nations after war, where they would castrate the remaining men and boys, rather than kill them, preferring to use them as slaves. it was used by royal families to sever the family lines of those families whom they had supplanted, or whom they wanted to extinguish.

Theon Greyjoy, the character in Game of Thrones represents a castrated royal family line, both as prisoner to the Starks (Ned being a fair lord), and House Bolton.

In theory..

Is it possible that modern humans – upon discovery and subjugation of the few remaining Cro-Magnon – enslaved the giant species, and castrated any young they found along the way? if this castration punishment was happening at the same time as domestication of animals (and modern man) then humans wouldnt have failed to notice that castration in the infant stage makes for a larger being. So were the extreme giants that are according to Steven Quayle found all over the world the first attempts to control/castrate the old giant bloodlines, and create slaves out of our tall ancestors? After all, an army of giants would be very useful for a new species intent on world domination, and the relatively few remains found today could be explained by the fact that castration would have meant certain, and almost sudden, extinction of the genetic line of giants.

 

Our next line of investigation will be to study the skull shapes of currently known giants to determine how closely related they are to Cro-Magnon skulls.

Corduene, ancient Kurdistan – heartland of the Djinn?

by 5ocietyx

ancient Corduene

Corduene (also known as GordueneCordyeneCardyeneCardueneGordyeneGordyaeaKordueneKorchaykGordian, Hebrew:קרטיגיני ) was an ancient region located in northern Mesopotamia, present-day south-eastern Turkey and northern Iraq.

It has been cited as the country of the Carduchians (Kardashians?), a fertile mountainous district, rich in pasturage. The three principalities of CordueneMoxoene, and Zabdicene are referred to as Carduchian dynasties by Toumanoff. The Kingdom of Gordyene emerged from the declining Seleucid Empire and for most of its history, it was a province of the Roman Empire and acknowledged the sovereignty of Rome. From 189 to 90 BC it enjoyed a period of independence. The people of Gorduene were known to have worshipped the Hurrian sky God Teshub.

19th-century scholars, such as George Rawlinson, identified Corduene and Carduchi with the modern Kurds, considering that Carduchi was the ancient lexical equivalent of “Kurdistan”. This view is supported by some recent academic sources which have considered Corduene as proto-Kurdish or as equivalent to modern-day Kurdistan.

 

Jewish sources trace origins of people of Corduene to marriage of Jinns of King Solomon with 500 beautiful Jewish women. The same legend was also used by the early Islamic authorities to explain origins of Kurds.

Djinn straight from the bottle

Children of the Djinn (taken from The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race by Andrew Collins)

‘The angel-worshipping cults of Kurdistan see themselves only as descendents of the patriarch Noah, the saviour of humanity whose direct family settled in their land. In contrast, the Kurdish Jews preserve a very curious story concerning the origins of their gentile neighbours, whom they refer to as “children of the djinn”. They say that long ago King Solomon ordered 500 djinn to find him 500 of the most beautiful virgins in the world. They were not to return until every last one was in their possession. The djinn had set about their immense task, going to Europe to seek out the maidens. Finally, after gathering together the correct number, the djinn were about to return to Jerusalem when they learnt that Solomon had passed away. In a dilemma, the djinn decided what to do. Should they return the girls to their rightful homes in Europe, or should they remain with them? Because the young virgins had “found favor in the eyes of the jinn, the jinn took them unto themselves as their wives. And they begot many beautiful children, and those children bore more children… And that is the way the nation of the Kurds came into being”.

In another version of the same story, 100 genies are dispatched by Solomon to search out 100 of the world’s most beautiful maidens for his personal harem. Having achieved this quota, Solomon then dies and the 100 genies decide to settle down with the maidens amid the inaccessible mountains of Kurdistan. The offspring of these marriages result in the foundation of the Kurdish race, “who in their elusiveness resemble their genie forefathers and in their handsomeness their foremothers”.’

Etymology

If we break the syllables down in the word ‘Corduene’ – and its modern equivalent ‘Kurdistan’ – we have two words, ‘Cor’ and ‘duene’. The first word is quite obviously the Proto-Indo-European root ‘Kerd‘, which means ‘core’ or ‘heart’ (see also Latin ‘Cor’). Is it possible the second word – with its unusual second letter ‘U’ – is a root of the word ‘duende‘, the Spanish folklore equivalent to the Arabic ‘Djinn‘? As well as possessing the same first letter as duende ‘Djinn’ also has an unusual second letter, and It is curious to note that the Kurdish people themselves attribute their origin to a mixture of Jewish virgins and Djinn fathers. Another word that has a similar first and second letters is ‘Twin‘. In fact, it’s quite remarkable how the PIE root ‘dwo’ sounds like the first part of ‘duende’. ‘dwo’ was equivalent to the modern English word ‘double’ as well as ‘two’, which reinforces the belief that the Djinn and Duende are somehow our second, or twin.

So was Corduene the ancient heartland of the Duende, or Djinn, the shadowy counterparts (and sometime parents) of the human race?

Etymology of the word ‘Twin’

by 5ocietyx

Dr Jeckle & his other half, Mr Hyde

Old English twinn “consisting of two, twofold, double,” probably ultimately from Proto-Germanic *twinjaz (cf. Old Norse tvinnr, Old Danish tvinling, Dutch tweeling, German zwillung), from PIE *dwisno- (cf. Latin bini “two each,” Lithuanian dvynu “twins”), from *dwi- “double,” from root *dwo- “two” (see two). The verb meaning “to combine two things closely” is recorded from late 14c. The noun developed from Old English getwinn “double.”

Note the ultimate root of the word is the Proto-Indo-European ‘dwo-‘. which means ‘two’. whether it would have been used to describe a double or two of something remains unknown.

Brutus the Trojan King of Britain

by 5ocietyx

Someone once said the British are a bastard nation, in reference to there not being one particular tribe of British people who have inhabited the island for thousands of years, but more their being the result of a steady influx of foreigners. But the origin of the people who came to be known to the writers of history as British is still a hotly contested topic, one laced with centuries of intrigue and deception all of its own.

It is said in two of the most famous attempts at chronicling the nation – those of Nennius and Geoffrey of Monmouth – that the country was historically settled by a king known as Brutus, a member of a refugee community from the Trojan war. Both Geoffrey and Nennius claimed to have garnered their information from older sources, that we speculate have since been recovered and obscured by the Romans, or the Catholic Church, who both attempted to totally eradicate local historic knowledge during their repression and subjugation of conquered nations. In their tireless (and thankless) research, Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett have attempted to qualify the claims of Geoffrey of Monmouth and Nennius, and have in fact recovered many more folk stories that tell a similar story to the British works. But their research has been hampered by the red tape of bureaucracy, and a narrow-minded academia, who steadfastly refuse to accept anything other than an Anglo-Saxon origin for their people. The suppression of the Scottish, Welsh and Irish cultures by these same Anglo-Saxons continues to this day, and along with their admiration for Greek and Roman ideals, is the culture of what we know today as English.

Whilst exiled in Greece Brutus made himself known as a great warrior, to the point where he was seen as a potential leader and saviour. ‘His fame spreading over all countries, the Trojans from all parts began to flock to him, desiring under his command, to be freed from subjection to the Greeks.’ So already we have in the origins of Brutus an idea of escaping the Greeks, not admiring them.

During his messianic flight, Brutus and his group encountered a deserted island where they came across a temple devoted to Diana. Making libations to the Goddess he fell asleep by the altar, when he was visited in a dream by Diana, who said to him,

‘Brutus! there lies beyond the Gallic bounds
An island which the western sea surrounds,
By giants once possessed; now few remain
To bar thy entrance, or obstruct thy reign.
To reach that happy shore thy sails employ;
There Fate decrees to raise a second Troy,
And found an empire in thy royal line
Which Time shall ne’er destroy, nor bounds confine.’

They sailed west around Africa and stopped in France to do battle, before continuing on to the Isle then known as Albion, which was still inhabited by ‘the giants of old’. After quickly dispensing with the already dying race of giants Brutus and his people established their ‘Troia Nova’ – New Troy, in London, where Brutus was sworn in as king, upon the London Stone that now sits forlorn behind a faceless grill in Cannon Street.

The London Stone today.

The remains of this lost tribe, erased from the books of history by an establishment wishing to promote only classical Greco-Roman philosophies and practices, can still be decoded in place names and words of the British Isles. Wilson and Blackett claim it is the language of the Welsh, the Khymri, that is the original language of the Brutans, a language which came with the refugees from their homeland in the Middle-East. Interestingly, Wilson also claims the etymology of the English county name ‘Surrey’ is from Syria, where the Brutans originated. And phonetically, the Welsh, Cornish and French Breton languages are so similar, as to suggest that these are one tongue, separated only by passage of time. So place names such as ‘Ilfracombe’ in Devon, and ‘Blaen Cwm’ in Wales, ie. with the suffix ‘coom’ (which means ‘valley’ in Cymric), are actually no different when spoken – the Cymric pronunciation of the letter ‘W’ being an ‘oo’ sound. Swansea is known as ‘Abertawe’ to the Welsh, ‘Aber’ being a prefix for an estuary. As well as Welsh places such as ‘Aberfan’ and ‘Aberystwyth’, we see this word as far away as ‘Aberdeen’, which suggests the Scottish also once shared a common tongue with the Khymry of Wales.

The Druids, who dwelt all over Europe at one point, were said to have been destroyed finally by the Romans in Anglesey, the small island in the north-west of Wales. If its true that the Welsh were the unblemished descendants of the Brutans, then this chase into the Druid stronghold of Wales suggest to us that the Druids predated the Celts, who supplanted the British before the Romans in turn ‘civilised’ them. The Druids were wise men to the Celts even, who traveled across the Europe of their day to study under them. Old Welsh names for Anglesey include Ynys Dywyll (“Shady” or “Dark Isle”) perhaps for its former groves, and Ynys y Cedairn (“Isle of the Brave”) for its royal courts. (see Bryn Celli Ddu – the mound in the Dark Grove)

The Glastonbury Zodiac

In the Welsh countryside, Wilson and Blackett claim to have discovered an ancient zodiac, marked out with mounds and monuments, charting the positions of the twelve constellations of an older zodiac than we know today, much the same as Mary Caine’s Kingston Zodiac, and Katherine Maltwood’s now famous Glastonbury Zodiac, which include the Bird (phoenix, or dove?) instead of the Libra, or scales. Were these zodiac sectors the original boroughs of cities founded by these proto-Britons? It is said the zodiac we know today originated in the Middle-East with the Chaldeans, in around 700 BC, but that their zodiac contains the scales as Libra. It would then make sense that the older Brutan zodiac should contain a different sign for Libra, the Bird.

Below is an interview with the no-nonsense Alan Wilson, on his research into the two King Arthurs, which touches on the subject of the suppression of Brutus, as King of the Britons.

The heretic Stan Gooch vindicated (again)?

by 5ocietyx

In what seems like an almost verbatim retelling of the outcast researcher Stan Gooch’s theory of our evolution, anthropologists claim to have discovered the first Cro-Magnon/Neanderthal hybrid in Northern Italy. The skeletal remains are currently being analysed, but it is suspected that they individual lived 30 – 40, 000 years ago.

‘The genetic analysis shows that the individual’s mitochondrial DNA is Neanderthal. Since this DNA is transmitted from a mother to her child, the researchers conclude that it was a “female Neanderthal who mated with male Homo sapiens.”….The research team hints that the modern humans may have raped female Neanderthals, bringing to mind modern cases of “ethnic cleansing.” (ed. was this the first battle for Europe? See also Biblical account in Genesis of sons of God and daughters of the Earth)

For those who aren’t aware of Stan Gooch’s work, here is a very brief summary of his Hybrid-Origin theory, taken from his 1979 book ‘Guardians of the Ancient Wisdom’:

  1. From other human species, Cro-Magnon man evolves in Northern India during a long period of isolation, develops and practices sun worship and hunting magic; the culture is patriarchal.
  2. Elsewhere during the same period, different forms of Neanderthal evolve in Europe and the Middle East, while moon worship and earth magic is developed and practiced; the culture is matriarchal.
  3. Around 35,000 years ago, Cro-Magnon abandons India and heads west through the Middle East into Europe, overrunning Neanderthal. By 25,000 years ago, the predominant type in Europe is Cro-Magnon.
  4. In the Middle East a hybrid population, a cross between the Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal types, emerges. Pure Neanderthal has largely ceased to exist either here or in Europe.
  5. By 15,000 years ago, pure Cro-Magnon man has also ceased to exist, driven out of north and west Europe, into southern Europe, by renewed glaciation, absorbed by the hybrid type (that is, modern Homo sapiens).

So it looks like the late maverick Gooch is yet again vindicated, but not officially recognized for his years of tireless research, but then, what else would you expect?

The Moonwalk of the Callanish Stones

by 5ocietyx

The Callanish Stones

The Callanish Stones

The Callanish Stones are situated near the village of Callanish on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.

It is probable that Callanish (or Calanais) – which comprises two other stone circles in addition to the main site – was built some 5,000 years ago as a lunar calendar. The path of the moon, unlike the reliably annual tracks of the sun, only returns to the same point once every 18.6 years. Callanish plots this slow progress, building to a crescendo in the 19th year at the lunar standstill – when the path of the moon is so low that it seems to walk along the horizon before setting within the stone circle.

Callanish’s mystery to the expectant crowd is not merely in the stones, but in their setting within a sacred landscape. To the south-west of the stones is a low, undulating hill known to the local people in Gaelic as Cailleach na Mointeach – the old woman of the moors, or Sleeping Beauty as she is more affectionately known. The contours look irresistibly like a reclining woman. At the lunar standstill the moon rises from behind this hill, tip-toes across her supine body and sets four hours later behind the Clisham, another sacred hill.

This moonwalk will happen throughout the summer once a month until September, and will draw hundreds for a number of reasons. Some people come to worship the full moon, others to witness the goddess walking the earth. All come in expectation of a spiritual experience and to feel the energy of the planet.

Jinn Witches of Britain

by 5ocietyx

three Scottish witches

The last person to be executed for witchcraft in the British Isles was named Janet Horne, and it was in Dornoch, Scotland in 1727 that she – along with her daughter – was convicted. The name Janet Horne, or Jenny Horne was a generic name at the time for a witch, so the actual name of the convicted woman may not have even been Janet Horne.

Lets take a look at the names Janet and Jenny. Both come from the name Jane. Janet comes from the French diminutive form of Jane, which is an affectionate version of a name given to a child or loved one. In French they add ‘Jan-ette’ to indicate the diminutive, and in the British Isles ‘Jane-y’ is used. So as well as Janet, here we also have a possible explanation for the origin of the name ‘Jenny’. Although, back then Jenny was pronounced ‘Jin-ee’, and it can be said this is a dialectic version of the name ‘Jane’, it is also an old name for an entity that we know today as a ‘Genie’.

The English word ‘Genie’ actually comes via the French ‘Génie’, which in turn comes from the Latin word ‘Genius’, which described a guardian spirit thought to be assigned to each person at birth. Ultimately this comes from the PIE root ‘Gen-‘, meaning ‘to produce’. The Arabic word ‘Jinn’ comes from the Arabic root ‘g-n-n’ which means ‘hide, conceal’. ‘Jinn’ means ‘those who are concealed’. It is the name given to a group of spirits who are said to cohabited Earth alongside Humans, but in another realm. The singular term is ‘Jinni’. The French translator of ‘The Book of One Thousand and One Nights’ used the word ‘Génie’ for the Arabic word ‘Jinni’ because he felt it was so similar in meaning and sound.

There is no known link between the roots of these two words, yet both so obviously describe the same phenomenon, a spirit form that is not the Anima, but is still in some way important to the Human experience. Perhaps the Scottish word ‘Jenny’ was in fact an older word too – not an English or Arabic one at all – but a much more ancient indigenous name for someone with a dark, malevolent spirit attached to them. Could all three have ‘coincidentally’ picked the exact same phonetic and descriptive word for this adversary?

The name Horne however still alludes our research. But i think its fair to say we have a good contender for why the name Jenny was used to describe a witch in 16th Century Britain.
