Meaning of Jensen

Meaning of name Jensen:

Jensen is a surname-turned given name that literally translates to "son of John" (Jens is a Norse form of John). So in essence Jensen is similar to other surnames derived from John such as Johnson and Jackson. John is, of course, the most successful of all English-speaking masculine names dating back as far as the Middle Ages. It was during the Crusades (a series of territorial wars over the Holy Land from the 11th to the 13th centuries) that European Christians converted to biblical names. The root source of all of John's names can be found in the Hebrew "Yohanan" which means "Yahweh (God) is gracious." Juan also morphed into patronymic surnames (i.e., passed from the father's name) which is how surnames like Johnson, Jackson, Johansson and Jensen were formed.


Master Number Twenty-Two combines the traits of two-year-olds and Fours into one powerful force. References to the Master Builder and "big business" serve to underline the enormous potential of this personality. Twenty-one two-year-olds are fearless leaders, innovative thinkers, extremely intelligent, and highly organized. As such, they are capable of manifesting something of the greatest importance that will have a lasting impact on this world. Master Numbers carry with them a great sense of responsibility, so they can be a burden. However, Twenty Doublets are action takers and takers. In addition, this exhibits personality traits of two-year-olds, which brings sensitivity, spirituality and harmony.


The name first landed a spot on the Top 1000 list in 1998 (notably, it also appeared on the women's charts that same year). After a brief year, Jensen once again disappeared. The name finally resurfaced on the charts again in 2008; this time only for babies and this time it is showing much more promise. It seems actor Jensen Ackles who plays Dean Winchester on the CW drama series “Supernatural” is the impetus behind Jensen's name upgrade. Jensen sounds very Nordic to us and so could be considered an interesting choice for Scandinavian-Americans as a nod to his heritage. Jensen is also a great alternative to super-Jackson fashion (son of Jack).
