EtymologyEdit

Derived from the passive participle of passive verb جُنَّ(junna, to be mad, insane, possessed).

The origin of the words are not from the word or term used as Jinn for ginnies. Its driven from passion. Specifically used for them who have lost their minds for the sake of love and have consumed themselves to an extent where they do not exist but the love does. Jinn is an incorrect reference.
