A Cornish variant of the name Guinevere, Jennifer (as in Schoenhofer, pictured here, from No. 428 company Axis Teknologies) hit its peak in baby name popularity in the U.S. during the 1970s and early 1980s. The year 1970 was a big year for Jennifer: in that year, Jennifer was the top name for baby girls in the U.S., and Erich Segal's romantic novel Love Story—featuring a female protagonist named Jennifer—became a national best-seller. Segal's book was adapted into a movie, which was also released that same year. Other famous Jennifers include Aniston, Lopez, and Jason Leigh.
