Meaning:God is gracious
Sharing origins with the Greek and Hebrew Jane, Genette is a feminine name with the faithful meaning of “God is gracious.” Flaunting a romantic French -ette suffix, Genette soars gracefully off the tongue and lends an elegant title for your little cherub. More widely spelled as Jeanette or Jeannette, Genette adds a touch of individuality to a well-loved name. This bright appellation is also a rare French surname, most notably borne by literary theorist Gérard Genette.
