Pay homage to baby’s beautiful fair features or their strong Celtic heritage with the friendly-sounding moniker Janifer. Ultimately stemming from the Welsh name Guinevere, it is jam-packed with a sense of mysticism or magic. Typically feminine, Janifer means “fair one,” “white and smooth,” or “soft.” Also related to the name Jennifer, it is believed to have come from the Proto-Celtic Windo-*sēbro or the Old Irish síabar, which means “a phantom” or “a supernatural being.” With a name like Janifer, we have no doubt baby will delight everyone who knows them with their otherworldly presence.
