There are two performers with the name Mistinguett: 1) Mistinguett (April 5, 1875 – January 5, 1956 from Enghien-les-Bains, Val-d’Oise, Île-de-France, France) was a French actress and singer, with the birth name of Jeanne Bourgeois. At an early age she aspired to be an entertainer. She began as a flower-seller in a restaurant in her home-town, singing popular ballads as she sold her flowers. When a song-writing acquaintance made up the name Miss Tinguette, Jeanne liked it. She made it her own by joining it together and eventually dropping the second S and the final E (Mistinguett).
