Q – Hello Lloyd,
In my other life I will soon be participating in a linguistic conference, discussing Celtic names. I intend to speak about the Cornish name Jennifer, among others.As I was pondering the proliferation of Jennifers in lyrics (Eccles, Juniper, ‘s Rabbit) I wondered what was the reason that you chose that name for ‘Jennifer She Said’? I will gratefully acknowledge any reply in my paper.

A – Correct number of syllables, I guess, and I seem to have this thing with the letter J, that I do not understand. The song was inspired by Johnny Depp’s ‘Winona Forever’ tatoo, if I can remember that far back..
