I agree with @starcatcher668 completely. I don't know where you are, but in the US I doubt most will pronounce it correctly.I pronounce Geneviette like you said! At least with Genevieve, it still sounds pretty as Gen-uh-veev (the more typical American pronunciation), but Geneviette would be difficult to pronounce for most.

In order to pronounce that name as "zha-an-vi-ette," the accent aigu-- downward sloping accent on the E in GeneviEVe-- would have to be preserved. However, the -ette ending is not spelled with that accent. That's why it doesn't seem like a legitimate diminutive to me, but rather a cute pet name.Blade, MD
