I was watching something with Ginnifer Goodwin the other day and while I know that she changed it from Jennifer (I assume to have a more “Hollywood” look or maybe so she could join the guild if there already was a Jennifer Goodwin). Clearly she still pronounces it Jennifer and goes by Jenny.
Here’s what I’d like to know:
1) What do you think of Ginnifer?
2) How would you pronounce it?
I am rather taken by Ginnifer (Gin-nih-fer) nn Ginny. (This pronunciation and spelling only).
It feels like a fun variation of Jennifer (which while beautiful I’m just a little bored of at the moment - I’ve also never really liked Jen or Jenny). But, I’m not sure I’d want to use it - the name nerd in me can’t really get over the “no history/made up” part and I’d really love some input. (I’m not pregnant or TTC but we are getting married soon and I know that my FH has a much more traditional classics, spunky modern taste than I do - so of course I’m trying to come up with things I’d like). Thank you!!EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.

She changed it from Jennifer to Ginnifer because of the way it is pronounced where she grew up. Also because there are a lot of other Jennifer actressess. It also looks cool with her last name!
She went by Jenny, but it sounds like Ginny in Memphis, Tennessee.
I love Ginny, so I like Ginnifer. I think Ginnifer is better than Jennifer. Since Jennifer is way too popular. However, of all the options for a full name for Ginny, I prefer Ginevra.

Jenny when she’s refers to herself in the third person. I remember so clearly because I was a little surprised by it not being Ginny.
Anywho... thank you on your input and thoughts on Ginnifer and the suggestion of Ginevra - it’s a little too close to Geneva for me - the whole name of the city is tainted for my by its German/Swiss name “Genf" (ɡɛnf).EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.
