Jennifer is a favorite name in my family. My grandmother and daughter both share the name and it is really very pretty.

Same with Jim/James
Tony's are full of themselves (my brother for one)
Aaron's are just funny, popular easy going guys
Lisa's get annoying and on my nerves, every Lisa I have known I am no longer associated with. Big time, pushy, witches.
What do you think about Aurora?
Patricia, there's an uncommon girl name nowadays..
I like Emma, Sophie, Anna. Those are pretty names.
Forgot to add Chad!! I can't stand Chads, or Brads, or Brents.
If my baby was going to be a girl..Aurora is the name I was going to give her. And her nick name would be Rory.

Well, I voted... And then noticed I'm the ONLY person that voted 'Heather'..... Yes, maybe it's how I was raised. Most Heathers I met were blonde (yes, the truth comes out for the one who accused me accurately of prefering blondes ), but it was more than that. Maybe it was where I grew up, but the name carried with it a snooty kind of upscale feel to it and that type had an attraction toward the straight-up middle class boy like myself with a lot of aspiration and a bright future......

Okay, then I decided halfway through High School that I could skate by and party and did a pretty good job of it, but I coulda gone Ivy League had I set my mind to it...... (really..... no.... I'm not kidding... ).

I'm a Jennifer and my mother and I still joke about how much we dislike the name. (I was supposed to be named something else, but at the last minute, my father decided he liked the name Jennifer. My mother did not like it but since my father was in Vietnam during the last months of her pregnancy and my birth, and she was afraid he was gonna die over there and never see me, she named me what he wanted to name me.)

But in my mind, there's a big difference between Jennifer, Jenny, and Jenn. Those names have different "personalities" to me.

"Jenny" has always made me think of a whole lot of sweetness...like an elementary school teacher or the preacher's wife or something uber-wholesome like that. Jenny is a cupcake. (I was never a Jenny. No one has ever called me that.)

"Jennifer" is more serious...studious. Not necessarily professional or executive or corporate. Academic, maybe. A librarian, or a doctor, or a scientist, or a professor. Jennifer may be a bit flamboyant, a bit artistic, but still in a quiet way.

And "Jenn" is more extroverted and carefree...maybe more tomboyish. Jenn is breezy and busy, always on the go. Happy and flirty and maybe a bit mischievous. Smart as a whip, but not necessarily bookish. Loud...possibly a bit of a party girl.

For the most part, I've always gone by Jennifer. That's how I introduce myself and how I think of myself. My friends occasionally call me Jenn. What has surprised me the most is the ASTONISHING number of people who call me JB, my initials. Where on earth did that come from? But I get it all the time.

Niftybergin -

Oh, but you will always be, to me at least, my sweet Jenny.

























Now you can say that someone called you: "Jenny"

Hmmm...maybe I'll embrace it in my middle-age. Thanks, uh...FOREST. (Jenny: Run, Forrest! Run! Ha! How could I resist?)
