In the world of contemporary baby names, taking traditional nicknames and elevating them to first-name status is a winner! Originating from the more formal Cornish and English name Jennifer, meaning “white spirit,” Jenny now enjoys a stand-alone status around the world. Jenny is also a variant of the Hebrew name Jane, meaning “God is gracious.” Whether you adore the first or second meaning, a name like Jenny is not going anywhere soon with its associations with popstar “Jenny from The Block” and Friends star Jennifer Anniston.
