"My name is Jenifer with 1 n....The only thing is that everyone spells my name wrong it has become a severe pet peeve. But i like correcting people. But some people that should not spell my name wrong like doctors, dentists, teacher/school workers, and ect. But im fine with that till it gets to a point. But i love my name SO much even though I can?t find any with my name on it I would never have a different name." Apr. 26, 2018:

"Even though every document I get has my name spelled wrong - and the insurance company once told my mom that her daughter Jennifer with 2 N's was covered, but her daughter Jenifer with 1 N was not (why would she have 2 daughters named Jen(n)ifer??) - I love having something unique about my name. When people apologize for misspelling it, I just laugh it off by telling them to blame my mother. :)" Sep. 22, 2009:

"My name is Jenifer and I am 25. Jennifer was a popular name the year I was born so it was nice to be the different Jenifer with one N. I never can find anything monogramed but that just makes me feel really special and I love to correct people when they spell it wrong. I just tell them that my mom wanted me to be special."
