This very French name has a lovely soft sound (GEN-uh-veeve) and a long history. In the fifth century, young Genevieve was a faithful Christian who became a nun in Paris. Through prayer and belief in God, she protected the city against Attila the Hun and his army. Today St. Genevieve is known as the patroness of Paris. The name was a hit in the early 19th century but dropped out of favor midcentury. It's back and climbing the charts.
