Jennifer

fair one
ORIGIN: Welsh
POPULARITY: 566
With so many A-list Jennifers running around Hollywood (Aniston, Lawrence, Hudson, Lopez), it’s surprising that the name doesn’t rank higher on the baby-name charts. But it’s been a contender since the late 1930s, including a run as No. 1 during the 1970s and early 1980s. It was introduced to the English-speaking world through Guinevere, the French form of a Gaelic name that translates as “gwen” (for “fair”) and “hwyfar” (meaning “smooth”).
