Meaning

A classic French name, Genevieve can be pronounced either the French way as 'genvyev', or 'geneveev', both exquisitely graceful. For an extra-romantic touch, Saint Geneviève, is in fact the patron saint of Paris. The name means 'lady of the house' though no-one really knows from whence it came, as it could be ancient German, or then again, ancient Celtic!
