Meaning:*
This name derives from the Cornish “Gwenhwÿfar,” composed of two elements: From the Proto-Brythonic “*gwindos,” and Proto-Celtic “*windos,” meaning “white, fair” plus from the Proto-Celtic “seibrā (hwyfar),” meaning (phantom, spirit). The name means “the white fay, white phantom, white spirit.” In Arthurian legend, Gwenhwÿfar was the wife of King Arthur. It became a common first name for females in English-speaking countries during the 20th-century. The name Jennifer has been in use since the 18th-century. Before 1906 the name was relatively uncommon, but it gained some recognition after George Bernard Shaw used it for the main female character in The Doctor’s Dilemma.
