  1. I wanted a strong masculine name and loved how it sounded with Jones. He got his father’s middle name: Thomas

  2. We chose Jensen because as soon as we spoke it and wrote it down it just sounded so natural and perfect coming out of our mouths! Every other name we were coming up with was just too common or “ruined” by association! We love our boy, Jensen and his name is so suitable for him! We call him J, or Jens for short.

  3. We had such a hard time coming up with a name for our son. We wanted it to have ties to our families but also be unique. Then one day we heard the name “Jensen”. Upon looking it up, I found out that it is the Scandinavian form of John and means “God is merciful”! John was the name of close relatives on both sides and after an excruciating pregnancy and year with medical emergencies for our extended family, “God is Merciful” was where our hearts were draw so we knew this was the one for our little man! The only down fall is that it’s hard to find personalized souvenirs since it’s quite unique.
