Genevieve is a feminine name. Its exact origin and therefore meaning is disputed. Some experts feel it is of French origin while others argue that it is derived from Old German meaning 'white wave'. Still others are convinced it is of Celtic origins meaning 'race of women'. It has many variations like Jenny, Gena, Jennie, Genavieve, Jenevieve, Geneva, Janeva Gina, Geneve, Genny, Genovera, Gennie, Genoveva, Genivieve, Geneveeve, Genevie and Genivee.

In Christianity Saint Genevieve is the patron saint of the city of Paris. Her feast is celebrated on the third of January. She was a simple pious peasant girl from Nanterre in France. She shifted to Paris and stayed with her godmother Lutetia. In Paris her fame spread far and wide owing to her pious works of charity and her sacrificial adherence to a strict vegetarian diet. She is most revered for her contribution of repelling the invasion of Paris by the Attila the Hun. He went on to lay siege to Orleans instead.

This is a French name - in French it is pronounced je-ne-vee-EV , with an accent on the third "e" (the "G" is soft, like the "s " in pleasure.) It is probably Celtic in origin, a combination of ancient words meaning "tribe", "woman" and "people."

Genevieve was a popular name in France in the Middle Ages. In fact it is the name of the patron saint of Paris. This was a 5th century nun who helped the people of Paris (then Romanised) to resist its occupation by the Frankish tribes, and attacks from the Huns.

Genevieve began to be used as a name in Britain in the early 19th century. It isn't very common now, but most people find it an attractive name. In English it is usually pronounced GEN -e-veev and written without an accent.

Famous Genevieves include actress Genevieve Bujold - and, of course, the beloved car Genevieve from the old films.
