Jenna is a girl's name of English, Welsh origin, meaning "white shadow" or "white wave". It is a short form of Jennifer, which is a Cornish variant of Guinevere, derived from the Welsh Gwenhwyfar. The name has also been associated with meanings such as "small bird" in ancient Greek and "paradise" or "heaven" in Arabic. The origin of the name Jenna can be traced back to the legendary character Guinevere from Arthurian legends, who was King Arthur's wife and Sir Lancelot's lover. The name first gained popularity in the 1970s, possibly due to the television series "Dallas," which featured a character named Jenna Wade. Since then, it has been a timeless alternative to other names like Jenny or Jemma.
