Jenifry

Jenifry is a Cornish female name, the Cornish form of Welsh Gwenfrewi. It’s made up of Welsh elements gwen (white, fair, blessed) and frewi (reconciliation, peace)  though it’s possible the latter element could derived from Welsh ffrwd (brook, stream) so the name essentially means “blessed/fair peace” or “blessed/fair brook”.

Nicknames: Jen, Jenny
