User comments for Jenny (Meaning / History Only)

Ok, guys! Jenny does not come from Jennifer or Jane or whatever you have written here. The origin of the name is from the Greek name Eugene which means a person who is noble and kind.
It goes like this: The feminine variant of Eugene is Eugenia or Eugénie. Eugenia in Russian becomes Yevgeny or Jevgeny. The nickname of Jevgeny is Geny or Gene or Genni or Jenni and so on...

Jenny doesn't mean 'white wave,' Jennifer does. Jenny is just a nickname for Jennifer or Jane, so I guess it means whichever original version you use.
