a lot of times, i like a kid being able to have a name and use a nickname, so they can still have a cute nickname growing up but can use a more professional nickname on a business card, etc. but it hink that jenna is a great name anyways and ages fine, so i see your point.

As for the pronunciation of Genna, I would assume that it rhymes with Gemma.
Jellybean: I totally see your point about nicknames making you feel loved, or in a way at least. My youngest daughter's full name is Bianca, her official nickname being Bee (which most people use - grandparents, aunties and uncles and our friends) but then we (my husband and I) call her anything from Honey to Bumble to Buzz to Rosa, and our other 3 daughters call her BeeBee. Anyone outside our immediate family don't know Bianca well enough to call her by anything other than Bee or Bianca, depending on how well we know them (I'm sure once she starts school another name will be added). Strangers only ever get Bianca. So, I don't know about nicknames making a child feel loved, but it does sort of measure the closeness to people. There are considerably less people that call her Bianca than Bee.
