Jenny Lind, or Johanna Maria Lind (1820-1887), was a Swedish opera singer whose nickname was the Swedish Nightingale.

She gave her first performance in London in May 1847 at Her Majesty's Theatre, Haymarket; appropriately, Queen Victoria was in the audience.

A 1930 film entitled A Lady's Morals offered a highly-fictionalised version of Jenny Lind's life. The part of Jenny Lind was played by the American opera singer Grace Moore, whose nickname was the Tennessee Nightingale.
