Jeffery is a boy's name of German origin that means "peace." Some of baby's tantrums might not seem all that peaceful, but it doesn't make this name's meaning any less admirable. Jeffery, which can also be spelled as Jeffrey, is a variant of Geoffrey, which came from the names Godfrey and Gottfried. It's also sometimes used as a surname in the form of Jefferies or Jefferson. If that seems like too many possible spellings of the name, then the nickname Jeff is ready to make things easier.
