Personal experiences with the name Jhenna: | Edit

Not wanting the name Jenna to turn into Jen, we decided on adding an h to throw off a nicknaming.

I had no idea that Jenna was a popular name when we chose it. I'd liked the name since I was in middle school. My name is a common name spelled unusual (Amie) and I liked chosing the same for my daughter. Since then we've met many Jennas but we've yet to meet a Jhenna. The only thing that disappoints my daughter as it always did me, we can never find anything preprinted with her spelling on it.

I found the spelling Jhenna in one baby book at the book store. I've never seen it since. It said it's origin was Arabic and that the name meant "Little Bird".
