· Jennifer Juniper was written for Jennifer Boyd, Pattie Boyd's younger sister, on whom Donovan had a crush. Juniper was the name of a boutique Jennifer Boyd ran in London. They went together to the famous trip to India with all the Beatles. Jennifer Boyd appears in a short movie directed by Karl Ferris called Wear Your Love Like Heaven, when Donovan was preparing his album A Gift From A Flower To A Garden. Despite the rumours around the song and the possibility of a love affair between them, Donovan denied anything happened in his autobiography The Hurdy Gurdy Man. He just wrote the song because he felt like doing it. The words Jennifer and Juniper are etymologically the same.
· In 1968 a lot of girls were named Jennifer, after the song's title. The same happend with Lalena.
· In the film Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, Natalie Portman plays Jennifer Juniper on the piano.
