Why was it so important? There was an interesting reference to the name Jennifer in the 1900s show by George Bernard called, The Doctor’s Dilemma, the show was played in Broadway in 1915 and there was a character in the show called Jennifer, it was referenced in that show that Jennifer was an unusual/unpopular name. However, since that date, it grew in popularity.

There have been a few boys baby names registered as Jennifer but it is traditionally a female name.

Choosing Jennifer as a baby name
It’s not popular as it was in the 1970s but if you are considering choosing Jennifer as your girl's baby name it can represent the application of mental ability in its purest form, that you will have a baby with logic and philosophy, knowledge, science, and above all leadership. The baby name Jennifer depicts battles of word and wisdom in the fight to be on top. She really is the Goddess Wisdom and patroness for philosophers. The name Jennifer brings a quick and logical person to a problem. However, due to her leadership, her deep emotions or feelings can cloud judgement. As a friend, she can help others rid themselves of useless ideas and illogical ways of thinking. Jennifer as a baby is normally content and she communicates clearly and effectively to make our ideas heard to others. Yes, that can mean crying at times. It is a name given to a wonderful child and the fairy dust will surround her in the future.
What is the numerology of the name Jennifer?
Jennifer is a name that is given to you by your parents. When we are born our soul is bought into this life and Karma can change your world. Because most people don't know how to master their mental faculties by thinking, nor can they learn how to master past emotional traumas through reliving them, learning about your name is an incredible tool. These things can be overcome by releasing the energy that is associated with them. Numerology is the best method for doing this. Every letter of your Christian name, Jennifer carries meaning. Every trait, personality or relationship of life can be reduced down to numbers, for it is numbers that make the world go around and each number has its own meaning.
Numerology of names comes from the ancient Greek mathematicians and the concept of numerology dates back to 2,500 years ago. The reason I mention this is because to uncover your own fate or perhaps you are thinking about calling your child Jennifer it is important to apply the ancient dusty numerological associations to our modern, internet-driven world. To understand further what the name Jennifer means we need to turn to the ancient meaning as well as the numerology and use the eight letters in Jennifer to make a valuable prediction, this will help us uncover not only personality traits but also skills that you might be good at to develop an understanding of how you can better navigate life.
Jennifer starts with a “J” and this is a leader letter along with letters A and S. The letter J in numerology represents someone that is intelligent and can suggest how one is blessed, Jennifer will understand in new opportunities and enjoys being challenged in life. As an eight worded name it can indicate that she is stands on the cornerstone of greatness as eights represent a born leader. Jennifer's intelligence and leadership skills will impress most people and it is not uncommon to find Jennifers in high up company positions. E is her first vowel or what I describe as a “focus letter.” This can indicate that she will be blessed in life, especially as she has two E in the name. One at the beginning and one at the end.
Sometimes, it is possible to "see" someone more clearly when you get to know them better. For example, Jennifer has two doubles in the name “nn” and “ee.” The double letters in names are important personality traits that we must consider. Double up letters can suggest the traits are even stronger than normal. The double “nn” in the name can indicate Jennifer is magnetic and can be a natural counsellor or healer. She is a great friend and will offer valuable advice to those in need. She may be a negative n though at times, which means that she can hide away when she is down. Is that something that you do? The next set of doubles in Jennifer is the double “ee” but these are not together, they are at the front and end of the name with “nnif” in the middle. I don’t want to confuse you too much but the reason why I mention this is because the letters are connected to growth, leadership and happiness. These are positive elements of this name.
What does this mean for Jennifer's life?
Jennifer-born people are often joyful, dedicated, leaders, reliable, and dependable. They value stability and security above all else. Due to the f in the name, they enjoy laying the foundations of life and will work towards specific goals. It is important that they follow through with tasks using the letter i fiery energy in the middle of the name. On a more negative front, they are often stubborn and hate change. It can be difficult to convince those named Jennifer to change if they are accustomed to a routine.
Due to the fact that Jennifer is a numerological 9 and this is calculated by using the following sum:
J = 1 E - 5 N = 5 N = 5 I = 9 F = 6 E = 5 R = 9
We now, single that down to one number which equals a 9, the other element is to understand the amount of 5’s in the name, plus Jennifer also contains 8 letters. Eights and fives in numerology can indicate a person that is a charming and harmonious creature who surrounds themselves with others that support them. The nine in numerology are connected to beauty and harmony. Jennifer can be quite focused on her search for harmony, which can lead to them being depressed or even unfocused in life. Jennifers are true managers, which means that they are caring and nurturing towards others but can be great defenders for those that don’t have confidence. They can sometimes be shy and have difficulty letting go of their inhibitions when in their teenage years. In school, Jennifers love to debate, despite at times being somewhat introverted.
What does the main numerology number of 9 mean to Jennifer - her life path?
Calculating and understanding your life path number will help you understand yourself better, and Jennifers are a number nine. Each life path number is similar to the zodiac signs. We can learn our traits from gaining this insight. Your key number (9) is associated with unique strengths and weaknesses that can influence our lives. If you are a life path 9, your core values and overall purpose in life are one of mutability and leadership. As I have already outlined, Jennifer is a 9 and I am going to spend a little time here articulating what that means.
There is some positive traits to having the number 9 as your life path number. This is a number that is known as cardinal numbers in numerology which means that they have a high value. There is acceptance and balance of giving to others. Jennifers often given the life number 9 can suggest that sometimes they struggle to surrender to the opportunity that is presented before them. I have a cousin called Jennifer who normally shy away from the spotlight. There is also so much wisdom in those that have 9 as their life path number. Just like astrology gives us our zodiac each month, numerology can help us gain a deeper understanding of who we really are.

It has great spiritual significance, especially shortened to Jen or Jenny. This is what I classify as a traditional name and indicates the fair one, meaning Jennifer will be a beautiful lady.
Where is the name Jennifer from?

No, it is traditionally an old name based on Queen Guinevere in 1858. It is not mentioned in the bible as such but represents a female that is of English nationality.
How to work out Jennifer's soul mission?
We often misunderstand a human beings soul mission in the spiritual community as a soul's job, sorry I don’t want to confuse you but I feel it is important to mention this when we are understanding the name meaning of Jennifer. Many people believe that life purpose and soul purpose are the same thing. As I have outlined above your life path is numerological 9 it is important to understand how you can use this information to uncover your soul's mission. Life purpose refers to the idea that we all come to earth with a mission.
If we fail to fulfil our mission, then we will be unhappy and miserable for the rest of our lives. Inside our bodies, our souls will continue to exclaim what our purpose is, and that we are on the right path. Your life purpose and your soul purpose are about how you live in life. Firstly, in a nutshell, the soul purpose or mission doesn't require you to do anything; it requires you to be who you are. So based on the numerology above what is the soul mission for Jennifer? It clearly shows that kindness and getting along with people is important.
Jennifer's souls purpose should be to align more with how she navigates her world, how she connects to others and shows compassion. How she expresses her compassion is key to her living her life for a purpose. As human beings, we confuse our “soul's purpose” with what we do for a job. You might, for example, be a baker and that is your job but it is not necessarily your soul's goal. Yes, the soul purpose does align with your life purpose or even your career but your goals might not match or fit. If you are reading this and you are named Jennifer it is normal to switch careers midway through life due to the fact numerological you have two double numbers.
Both these numbers vibrate the same way so they can be a vibrational match nn and ee.
I have been in the spiritual world for 25 years and it is clear that everyone’s soul purpose can be different. For example, one Jennifer's purpose will be different to another. The other thing that I want to also express is that one might become a musician while another may want to become a doctor. Is it possible to have multiple purposes and not be able to narrow them down to one purpose? I believe so, what I wanted you to take from this is that we seldom think about our purpose in this life, and I am a true believer you don’t find my messages by chance. This has come to you for a reason. Maybe take some time to work out your purposes on this earth plane so you can live a happier lifestyle.
