With the popularity of Jenna and other similar names like Gemma and Emma, I'm surprised this name isn't more popular. Not my style, but it's a fine name.

Came searching for this name after hearing it on The CW's hit show "Reign". I think this name is gorgeous and I prefer it over McKenna any day. It's soft and simple on it's own and has an air of elegance.

I met a Kenna this weekend at my cousin's wedding. She wore the name so well; her personality was beautiful and she absolutely glowed! It caused me to have a new appreciation for this name.
