I just have to know, I first thought it was a mermaid but now that I’ve looked up the logo, I’m confused. And IF it is a mermaid, why is it mermaid??? or maybe it’s Jinn??? what’s the connection with the name???
Yep it is Jinny and it was the initial SIP Communicator logo.
Checkout What is Jitsi | About Video Conferencing Software for more info. And that in 2011 the project got renamed and for the origin of the name.
I think one of the initial versions had the letters s, i and p incorporated in the jinny
