Meaning

This pretty name has two distinct origins. As a derivative of Jenny or Jennifer, from the ancient Guinevere, Jenna means the enchanting 'gentle and fair'. And Jenna, the Finnish nickname for Joanna, leads to the classic name John, meaning 'grace'. Sweet and simple, whichever way this lovely name takes us, it's full of finesse. Today, to add to Jenna's graceful legacy, the name has acquired a modern and youthful edge.
