  • "My name is Jennifer and I am from England where the name is not common. I have never met another Jennifer in my life and I am 24 years old! The fact that my name is not common is why I love it and I love my nicknames Jen and Jenny <3" Sep. 24, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My sister's name is Jennifer, and she was born in the mid 1980s and despises her name. her middle name is Michelle, and she doesn't like that, either. I think both names are great, but they are overly used. She goes by Jennifer, but our mom calls her Jenny (only Mom gets away with that, no one else does). She hated having a name so many other girls her age had; they all hated it. She tried to go by Jenna, but no one would call her that, and Jen just doesn't suit her as a shortened form or nickname."

  • "I too was named after Jennifer Jones. She was an actress my mom liked. I love my name and the fact that I have been able to switch it up with Jen or Jenny. As a little girl I went by Jenny, as a teenager and an adult I thought Jen or Jennifer fit better.I find it adoreable when the hubby says "I love my Jen-nay" I now have very young grandsons that call me Grandma Jenny and it's my favorite!!"

  • "My name is Jennifer, and I often go by Jen. People often spell Jen with the extra n, but I think its useless, so I shortened it to just Jen.

I hate the nickname "Jenny" but don't mind "Jen" "Nini" or "Jena" (what friends have nicknamed me throughout the years.)

I hated it when I was young, and, thankfully, my mother decided when I was a baby to call me by my middle name-Dawn- I still go by Dawn, but I do realize that Jennifer is a beautiful name-and everywhere I went traveling... Planes,trains,autos,internationally, hospitals,etc, it was always someone saying "Jennifer Easterling", anyway, so it didn't really bother me anyhoo...". There you have it."

  • "My name is Jennifer; Yet, growing up many people would mess up and call me Jessica.I attributed this mistake to the fact that I do not look like a Jennifer. Not long ago, I received a spiritual name from a friend (through a ceremony)because I thought it would be more fitting for me. Well I did some research and it turns out that Jennifer and my new name functions on the same energy level...9 (numerology).The meanings are very similar as well. So Im ok with Jennifer."

  • "I'm one of the millions of Jennifer's born in the mid-70's. My parents didn't name me because it was popular though. I'm actually named for the actress Jennifer Jones (movies in the 40's and 50's) because my grandmother used to call my mom "Jennifer Jones" when she got dramatic about something. :o) I was one of three Jennifer's in my elementary classes but we didn't mind sharing our name. Our middle names were all different and mine is Lee-Anne. It's kind of funny though, we have a daughter, born in 2006, who we named Emma. Turns out, her name is now one of those popular names. *sigh* Sorry, honey! lol At least she has a unique middle name - Ceilidh (pronounced Kaylee, but spelled the Gaelic way). At least she can be distinguished with that. Big cheer for Jennifer's!!" Jan. 8, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My real name is Jennifer but because my older brother couldn't pronounce it when I was born he started to call me Jenna. Even though everyone calls me Jenna whenever I'm signing something or writting my name I go by Jennifer. It depends on the setting and i really do like to be called Jennifer. Since Jenna has become so popular as a name a lot of people are shocked when they find out that Jenna isn't my real name. Sometimes I'm called Jen, it doesn't bother me but the one name i can't stand is Jenny(i), however you spell it. I won't respond to that name at all. I'm not really sure why I have a problem with that name but to me when someone calls me it it's like nails on a chalk board." Nov. 24, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like that I was named "Jennifer" but I'm not usually called "Jennifer" - it's normally "Jen" or "Jenny". "Jennifer" is definitely the correct spelling. I pronounce it "JennifUH" (being Australian) but since I've lived in the USA for two years, I'm now used to "JennifeRRR". The one thing I do not like is "Jen" being spelt with two n's. I've only seen that since being in the USA and it is incorrect to me. You don't spell "pen" with two n's or "hen" or "men" so why would you spell "Jen" like that. It seems silly and a little pretentious!" Nov. 2, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "As a kid I was always called Jeni (yes that is how it is spelled, my mother taught me to spell it that way because Jenny was way to common, but I spell Jennifer regularly). I still go by Jeni at home because it just sounds weird when the fam calls me something different. My sisters call me Jenn sometimes. In grade school I had to go by Jennifer because there was already a Jenny in the class. But in 8th grade I changed it back to Jeni and that stayed until I got to college and the profs don't care what you go by, they're just looking at the registration papers. So, I guess I go by all three, for appointments and such I go by Jennifer, my co-workers and friends call me Jenn because it's the shortest, and family and childhood friends call me Jeni. I don't mind any of them anymore and I will always turn when somebody says one of them, which in most cases they aren't even talking to me. :)" Oct. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Jennifer is a common name, yes indeed, but what i love about it is that it doesn't affect my individuality because people with this same name, may like being called differently. Its is peaceful, as am I, and also beautiful. My parents named me after a princess and wanted to give me a name that could be said in English and spanish as well. This way, I wouldnt be discriminated for any reason for not having an American name. I dislike finding out that someone has my name in the same class, so many close friends call me jenny. I tried jenn but it was still too serious for me. Jennifer Nicole is a no-no. Jennifer is only used by adults and people i barely talk to. Jenny is only for 'special people' (: i love my name."

Never found anybody less than 10 years younger with my name--looking at the graph, now I know why! My parents didn't allow anyone to shorten it when I was young, so as an adult, while I think the name Jenny is beautiful, it's just not *my* name. Sometimes I'm Jen, but usually Jennifer."

  • "I love my name NOW. But as others, I was born in 1977, and knew like 55 million other Jennifers growing up. I used to hate the name for this reason. I now like it. People typically shorten it to Jen even if I don't ask them too. I sometimes wish people would call me by my full name Jennifer. I too, refuse to be called Jenny, and finally put my foot down in middle/high school and made people call me Jen. I still "hate" my parents for calling me Jenny and my grandmother still does."

  • "this is real creepy but i am exactly (and i mean freaky-ly) exactly the same "My name is Jennifer but I'm not sure I really like it. It's better than the name Amanda that my mom wanted to name me but my dad wouldn't let her. I only go by Jenn. I despise being called Jenny or other ways it's spelled. Jenny, in my opinion, is too girlie and I am a major tomboy. The meaning of Jennifer is white wave and it sounds peaceful. I am so not peaceful or calm. In elementary school I was the only Jenn in each grade with the exception of a Jenny. Once she went to another school in middle school I was happy. I was the only Jenn or Jennifer in our grade. I'm in 11th grade now and I am still one of the two Jennifer's in our entire school for grades 6 - 12. The other one is a 7th or 8th grader and she goes by Jenny. I only know her because she's the sister of someone I talk to. I thought Jennifer was supposed to be popular. In my opinion, Jenn suits me better because it sounds a little like John" makes me kinda feel like my individuality has been taken though. at least i still have my middle name Anastazja. thats still unique."

  • "I am an 'old Jennifer' in comparison as I was given this uncommon name in long before the '70s boom. Growing up, I was called Jenn which is the 'proper' spelling...divide Jennifer in half and that's what you get! I remember not really liking my name because most kids prefer to be like their peers, and my friends were Karen, Kathy, Diane, etc. Finally in high school, I started to appreciate Jennifer especially when it became the number one girls name. Then I DIDN'T like it for being the number one name...too many Jennifers! I purposely named my kids uncommon names for the same reason...couldn't stand the thought of another Ashley or Kaitlyn or Jessica. I'm usually Jennifer for business...Jenn to close friends and of course family...I absolutely never answered to Jenny!" Dec. 31, 2008: Report as inappropriate

My middle name is Joellen (one grandmother was Josephine and the other was Ellen) so they chose Jennifer to go with it. It used to bother me how many Jennifers there are..but now I find the humor in it. Why? Because my two best friends are named Jennifer. We all go by Jenn (and frequently have to distinguish to others which Jenn we are talking about by refering to each other by our last names). Buy we refer to ourselves as "The Jenns" or "Jenn Cubed".

Although we originally chose the girls name, Ellisa, we changed our minds after hearing the 1960ıs song, ıJennifer Juniper.ı The title of the song reminded us of how sweet the Jennifers we knew were. Then when we read that one of the meanings for the name Jennifer is ıGift from Godı and the change was made. (We had NO idea it was the 3rd most popular name in our city that year.) Although her name was frustrating for her when she entered school because she was called Jennifer S. by her teachers in order to distinguish her from the other Jennifers in her class, each of the girls eventually settled on their own moniker and the initials were dropped. After entering High School, her friends started calling her Jen-Flow or just Flow. They nicknamed her that because she was a peace-maker and generally ıwent with the flow.ı At 21, she now goes by Jennifer with family and Jen or Flow with friends. She fits every variation of her name and truly is a ıgift from Godı to those who love her." Nov. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

Now that Im in college it isn't really cool anymore. But I like my name and meeting other people who have it dosen't make me like it any less. My name is special, it has so much legend behind it's meaning and there are actually a lot of other names in europe wich have the same meaning, like Ginevra is an italian name that means the same thing as Jennifer and the shortened version is Ginny, like in Harry Potter. And as a side comment, I think that saying Jennifer instead of Jen adds a lot more character. That why I don't mind people calling me Jen but I always call myself Jennifer."

If it was for something like a medical bill they may not, but if it is for a credit card debt they may require you to pay it off. Their biggest fear from them is if you get sued would you then have to default on the mortgage, basically making you a higher risk.However, your credit score is based on your credit report. So if you have negative items on your report that will be reflected in your score. How much endepds on several factors.

  • "I was born in 1989 and have lived my whole life in the south eastern US (Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, & Alabama). The name Jennifer is common but I can not think of a time I had more than 1 other Jennifer is my class. I think Ashley, Nicole, Jessica, Allie, and Rachel are more common than Jennifer. In high school there was one other Jennifer but she was in the grade below me. In college the only other Jennifer I know is on my cheer team. I have always thought the name sounded more mature and stuffy than I am. As I am getting older I appreciate it though because it is very versitile. It sounds professional (not like kylie or maggie) but can be shortened to Jen for informality. I go by Jen a lot, never spell it Jenn... that irritates me. And my family calls me Jenny Ann but I hate it, it sounds very young and like a pet name. all in all, Jennifer is far from the worst name I have heard and it is very versitile. It grows on you :)" Jul. 27, 2010: Report as inappropriate

THEN I went to Kindergarten and came home informing everyone my name was Jennifer not Jenny. SO, they all switched except one sweet lady who knew me since I was born. She was special so I didn't mind when SHE called me Jenny. Then in High School there were so many Jennifers my BF nicknamed me Jenny P. I loved it!! No one else had the nickname. It stuck through college. Jennifer is derived from Guinevere, so my sister's nickname for me is Gwenny-Poo. Totally goofy now that I'm 43, but very endearing. I sit on a board with another Jennifer, when I sign off my emails to the board I use Jen E. I like the play on words.

I have lately been introducing myself as Jennifer but have also grown to like Jen.I am in my middle teens now and I have realized that no matter what you are called for your name...Jen Jenni Jennifer- it is always said the way that it rings best to the person that is saying it, so even if you might not like it be open minded and grow to realize it is what they think is pretty and that is why they prefer to call you that name.
