If your name is Jenna, you were born to be a leader, particularly in the business or financial world. You have all the raw materials to make a fine executive (maybe even CEO)! Your administrative and managerial abilities abound, and you possess a rare quality to lead a group towards a common strategic goal--seeing the big, overarching picture, but never losing sight of the all-important details. Your skills in managing a group also shine through in your ability to allow room for everyone’s talents to shine through. You somehow find a way mold and combine those talents so that that you bring out the best in each individual and achieve the desired result within the group as a whole.
Clearly, you understand the importance of quality in everything you do, and you also understand it in the material things you choose to surround yourself with. This motivates you towards financial success, and chances are, you will achieve it! You are an energetic and hard-driving personality. Just remember to take advice from time to time from those whom you trust. You don’t have to control everything all on your own. And don’t get too mixed up in others’ problems in your attempt to help them. Your help will be appreciated, but don’t lose yourself or your cool in the process!
The name Jenna comes to us as a girls’ first name all the way back from the ancient Hebrew boys’ name Yochanan, meaning “God is gracious.” The name led to the Greek Iohannes, and the English form of John. The Old French feminine form of Iohannes became Jehanne, which transformed into the Medieval English Jane. Jane led to the medieval pet-name form of Jenny, which in turn led to the variation Jenna. In Arabic, the word “jenna” means “small bird.”
Jenna first came to use in the United States in 1971, with relatively low popularity. Along came the TV series “Dallas” in the 1980s, with the character Jenna Wade played by Pricilla Presley, and the name reached the Top 100 in 1984 and stayed there for over 20 years.
