Meaning:Juniper tree; Bending river
Geneva is a feminine name of German origin. While it translates to “juniper tree,” the etymology of its namesake Swiss city points towards “bending river.” Across cultures, juniper was used in a variety of ways: to ward off the evil eye, in traditional medicine, and for embalming. Juniper berries are also often used as a popular flavoring choice for gin and game dishes. As such, the name Geneva can inspire your little one to do their part in leaving the world a better place than how they came into it.
