Just because the full name Jennifer is common doesnt mean you cant make yourself unique! I've seen plenty of ways to spell it to make it unique theres Jenifer, Jennifer, Jenipher, Gennifer, Jenafur, Jenafer... and I'm not even going into all the nicknames =) Ciao! Jenalou =)

My name is Jennifer Hill, maiden name Jennifer Lee. Growing up everyone called me Jennylee. I found out that most people I knew for a very long time honestly thought my first name was Jennylee and I had to explain all the time that that was my first and last name. I seriously think I meet a Jennifer everyday of my life. This is why I have a Netalya, and KianaLee for my two girls. I haven't even been able to find them with the spellings I chose, but the meanings are beautiful as well as the names.

12/08/2023 09:34:26

09/28/2023 00:29:44

09/23/2023 14:41:44

i loke the name jennifer nicole because i think it is unique to me

07/22/2023 05:49:14

I am always being referred to as Jen E, or Jen 1, especially when I was in school. I prefer to spell my nickname with 1 n which I always have to tell people when I give them my name, "Jen with one n." I would never name my child Jennifer.

07/17/2023 10:01:42

i LOVE my name but there are too many Jennifer's. :(

07/02/2023 15:00:38

i dont know what all those things mean

06/16/2023 07:15:24

It looks like this might be the result of clerical error. All of these births occurred when Jennifer was most popular for girls. I have heard of mistakes being made on birth certificates and social security cards. It's quite possible that 3,000 baby girls named Jennifer were accidentally recorded as baby boys, something the parents wouldn't bother to fix, since it would have that great of an effect until they were adults.

05/21/2023 00:34:16

I love my full name Jennifer Ray, but I go by Jenn and I love that to...I have options Jenn or Jennifer:) Dont call me Jenny though!! :)

04/24/2023 08:11:14

When I was younger I hated my name - in my third grade class there were three Jennifers - after a while I stopped looking up if my name was only called once. Wherever I go I usually find more than one Jennifer. My Mom named me Jennifer June, which I always thought was a pretty combination. I also find that I don't mind being called "Jenny" b/c its usually said with affection - my Mom and sister used to call me Jenny Penny and a co-worker used to love calling me "Jenny Jen" - I can't say I ever minded either of these nicknames.

04/19/2023 11:13:10

i guess the name jennifer is very popular... everywhere i go there's jennifer, movies, tv's personalities, celebrities... jennifer is fact i named my eldest child jennifer, right now shes succesful in her choosen career. I guess this name comes with goodluck, im lucky to have such a good loving daughter named jennifer...

03/12/2023 11:34:34

Who else hates this question❤️ Every time I have ever filled out anything especially over the phone they ask, do you spell Jennifer with one n or two❤️ I have met a lot of Jennifer's and to date only two were spelled with only one n. They should be responsible for themselves to identify themselves, and if nothing is said, there will be an understanding that it is most likely spelled with two n's. Besides that, I like my name, whether it be Jenn, Jenny or Jennifer. One teacher would always ask me "What's a Jenni for❤️"

03/07/2023 15:29:24

i am jennifer or jennie. i think it was popular name and now not which makes it all the rarer

01/29/2023 23:52:50

My name is also Jennifer and I'm thinking that if any parent wants to name their son Jennifer, then'they are just setting him on the pathway to homo-sexuality.

12/30/2022 19:44:18

I like my name, but i definatly would not call it unique.

11/25/2022 06:52:22


11/23/2022 05:12:20

I can actually see jennifer being a guys name. It reminds me of the name Trevor..

10/25/2022 08:48:12

Well, let me be the FIRST one to say. I HAVE NEVER EVER MET ANOTHER JENNIFER IN MY WHOLE JENNIFER LIFE! I get called allot. Jen, Jenni, Jennifer, JenJen, Jenski, but personally I like Jenafwar. Jenafwar is so FRENCH and DRAMATIC. [Jen-ah-fwah is how its said] I think that my name suits me and all the other things that mean me add up too. I am a leo, and even my birthday from the birthday book described me who i really am. Weird but awesome. Later other Jennifers!!! Jenafwar

10/24/2022 17:13:38

i love the meaning of my name :) I just wish it wasnt soo popular... Its annoying that everyone has my name LOL

09/23/2022 20:55:16

My name is Jennifer Amy which isn't a common first/middle combination. Most of the Jennifers around here are named Jennifer Lynn or Jennifer Jo. But I recently met another Jennifer Amy which was a first for me. I named my daughter Jenevieve and people assume I named her after me. Not true. I've always loved the name Jenevieve and since my husband and I both have the initials of JAS I wanted hers to be the same. If I had spelled her name the common way with a 'G' her initials would have been GAS. Couldn't do that to her! So Jenevieve it is and we call her Eve for short so that there won't be 2 Jens in the house. :)

09/18/2022 23:39:34

i recently discovered my name was gennifer, not jennifer! although, i still continue to spell it with a 'j' because im so used to it!

07/30/2022 09:35:24

I used an application on Facebook that grades your parents originality according to the name they gave you and they got a F- for naming me Jennifer. 97% of other names are more original than mine :(

07/15/2022 22:48:18

I personally like jenipher. its so unique.

06/14/2022 22:54:36

My name is Jennifer i don't feel like saying my last name. is it okay to put my last name on here❤️ i am a girl.

04/12/2022 06:51:36

My name is Jennifer and I love it! I personally don't know many Jennifers. I am called Jen, Jenny, and sometimes even Jenni4. I hate it when people spell Jen with 2 n's (Jenn) it just bothers me I don't know why! Overall I love the name and its meaning!!!

04/09/2022 08:24:18

I too am a Jennifer! Jennifer Lynne to be exact. I like to go by Jen-Jen to my friends!

03/19/2022 14:38:42

i just have to say that I too am Jennifer... Jennifer Marie ... I like it its pretty... and well a major LOL at the fact that I too go by "Jenn-Jenn" (the only difference is that I prefer to use 2 N's instead of one...) =P LOL

01/03/2022 11:10:48

WOW! I CANT BELi've IT! IM HEART BROKEN......... :'( I THOUGHT I WAS LIKE THE ONLY HAILEE THAT SPELLED IT LIKE THAT!well..................i still like the name

12/06/2021 15:13:48

Hi, my name is Jennifer'starr Ball. I am very inter'sted in finding out how popular this name has been since 1999 'till 2019 and what the exact meaning is and what origen it is.

12/01/2021 16:16:48

my name is really Jennifer Mary but of course everyone calls me jenn and i hatee jenn but i dont know what else i could be called my dad calls me jennabella cause he wanted to name me belle and i love it i just dont know if i would want to be called that by my friends

11/09/2021 17:14:24

I was born in the mid-seventies and my name is Jennifer Anne. I like my name. I've been called Jen, Jenn, Jenny, Jen-Jen, etc. I must admit my husband is the first person to ever call me Fer. It makes me laugh and he's the first person to ever do it. Finally a part of my name that is "unique". :)

10/19/2021 11:35:06

I am of course a Jennifer. I prefer to be called Jennifer, not Jen and certainly never Jenny. (Did you know 'Jenny' is a female donkey...). When I was born, Jennifer was not a common name but it certainly was from the mid 70's onward. I like my name, it is a strong independent name for a girl.

07/26/2021 03:48:54

I'm a 16 year old boy and being named Jennifer makes me subject to regular ridicule (as my generation views it as a females name). I intend to legally change it within the next two months, in favour of a masculin name.
