I've only ever met one person whose actual name was Jenna, though I've known the Jennifers who go by Jenna, but they're not real Jennas :) I love my name so much because it's unique and different unlike some really common names like Emily or Rebecca. Sometimes people pronounce it Gina, which is super annoying. It's not like it's a hard name to figure out. And sometimes when I tell people my name they're like, "Jana?" And I have to explain, no, with an E... I only let my sister call me Jen, other people saying it just annoys me. Oh, and one of my close friends calls me JenJen, which I didn't like at first, but it's grown on me, only from this one friend though.
