Meaning:Of the race of women
Jenevieve, otherwise spelled Genevieve, is a French name primarily given to girls. It may come from the name Genovefa, which has Gaulish origins, and the meaning is uncertain. When broken down, Genovefa has been roughly translated to “of the race of women.” Some sources suggest it also derives from the Germanic words kuni, which means “family, kin,” and wefa, meaning “wife, woman.” Jenevieve emanates powerful feminine energy and carries an air of antiquity. If you’re looking for a name that exudes grace, Jenevieve is an elegant choice.
