Where did the Jenkins in Jenkins CI come from?

One of our developers asked me today where the name Jenkins name came from. I read how Jenkins was first called Hudson and that Hudson was trademarked by Oracle, but that doesn't explain where the name Jenkins came from. Anyone know?

wikipedia not sufficient? says
On February 1, 2011, Oracle said that they intended to continue development of Hudson, and considered Jenkins a fork rather than a rename.[13] Jenkins and Hudson therefore continue as two independent projects, each claiming the other is the fork.

Yes, I read Wikipedia. I wasn't particularly clear in my question. Who is/was Jenkins? Where did the project name come from?
