This was an Anglo-Norman French pronunciation of the Biblical name Judith and also a pet form (with the Anglo-Norman French suffix -et(te)) of both Judith and the much commoner female name Julian (from Latin Juliana, a derivative of Julius). See Jew and Julian .

    Americanized form of French Jouet or Jouët (see Jouett ) and possibly also of some other similar (like-sounding) French surname.

    History: This surname is listed along with the variant Jouett in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors.
