How someone responds when they learn your name is an incredibly accurate way to guess their age: Singing "Jennifer Juniper" by Donovan means they were a '70s flower child, singing "867-5309/Jenny" by Tommy Tutone means they are an '80s kid, and people who grew up in the '90s quote Forrest Gump. The ‘90s were a dark time to be named Jennifer.
