The medieval saint Genevieve is a celebrated figure in Paris as she is the patroness saint of the city, having saved it from Atilla and his Huns through prayer. She is also said to have displayed great courage in similar situations., including passing through siege lines to bring grain to the city. Genevie is a shortened form of this name while sharing its meaning of “tribe” or “woman.” Since Saint Genevieve’s feast day is observed on 3rd January, feel free to adopt the name Genevie for your little one if the date is relevant and you’d like them to emulate their namesake.
