- The back of the shirt was said to have the character jian3 简 (traditional: 簡 ): Jane/Jayne/Jean [transliteration for the English names Jane/Jayne/Jean]; [literally: [written] to select]. See TenthCrewMember’s image on Firefly Fans.net. To transliterate the names of famous women named Jane (and Jean), Chinese Wikipedia uses both jian3 简 and zhen1 珍 [used only in compound words]: to value highly.
