In the 20th century it became more widely used in the English-speaking world and enjoyed a period of great popularity, but it is now out of fashion. Among numerous well-known and influential bearers are the British novelists Jean Plaidy ( Eleanor Hibbert , 1910–93 ) and Jean Rhys ( Ella Gwendolen Rees Williams , 1894–1979 ), British actress Jean Simmons ( 1929–2010 ), and American-born actress Jean Seberg ( 1938–79 ). It is also found as a variant spelling of the masculine name Gene .
