Genevieve is a perfect choice for anyone who wants to retain the gen sound but is tired of all the overused Jen names. The medieval saint Genevieve, patroness of Paris, defended the city against Attila the Hun through her rathional thinking, courage and prayer.
Genevieve is both dainty and substantial, and can be pronounced either GEN-uh-veev or the French zhahn-vee-EV.
Genevieve is showing signs of a real revival--it is now at its highest ranking since the 1930s.
