Personal Quotes (2)

I was born with the name Jennifer. However, when I was 2 years old, my guardian angel (no joke!) came to me in a dream and told me her name was Jenna (I'd never heard the name before.) She said my name was supposed to be Jenna also. After that, I refused to answer to the name Jennifer anymore. No one has called me Jennifer since then. I legally changed my name a few years later (by then even my parents were convinced it was meant to be!) As for my middle name, it's Jean. Thus my full name is Jenna Jean von Oy.
(On her last name) "My last name is German and both my grandparents immigrated from Germany. The name is actually composed of two parts..."von", denotes land ownership, and "Oy" refers to a region in the lower Rhine. The family name predates any national borders and the ancestoral estates are in present day Holland. In fact, ruins of a castle still exist there. In current Dutch, the "Oy" mimics the Dutch word for stork and our family crest does portray a stork.."
