Jennifer means pure, white wave or if it is spelled Jennipher then it means pure, white ghost.

Hello all, as far as I know the name means as much as "white spirit", "bright spirit" or, as a free translation, "good spirit". It derives from the Arabic "djinn" meaning "ghost" and "fer" for "white".

If it is according to Welsh Mythology then Gwener is the Welsh word for the planet Venus.
Gwener [m.] (n.) Venus
or even
gwe+n [gwenau, f.] (n.) smile, grin.

In Welsh Jennifer means white-cheeked. I've also seen it used as fair in combination with beautiful, prsoperous or fertile. It's also said that a Jennifer has deep emotions, a bright mind and will do aything to reach her goal.

If it was originally a Cornish name, why is it not also listed as Cornish?
