First Derivation:
Jenna -> Jenny -> Jennifer -> Guinevere -> Gwenhwyfar ("fair, smooth"/"white, smooth"

Second Derivation:
Jenna -> Jenny -> Jane -> Jehanne -> Johannes -> Ioannes -> Yochanan -> Yehochanan ("Yahweh is gracious")

Yahweh may have been based off of an old Semitic word meaning "to be" or "to become".
