Comments for GENEVA:

I knew a girl named Geneva. She was quite lovely, a bit soft spoken. Geneva is a very pretty name.

I think it is a very pretty name. There is a town close to mine called Geneva, and there is also a female character in the book series 'Abarat' named Geneva. These books are written by Clive Barker.

Genève is French for Geneva.

It's not that it isn't pretty, but the city sort of makes this a weird name to have, especially in Europe.

The meaning of the single name Geneva is Old French meaning "juniper tree". This name may refer to the Juniper Tree in which the Old Dutch name was “Genever” (Gin) which is favored with Juniper Berries. The name has indeed been influenced by other names. Depending on its multiple origins, however, its meanings can vary; whether it is the Juniper Tree or a simple variant from Genevieve.

It is a name connected to many different variants such as Genevra, Ginevre, Genevieve, and Jonevah.

I recently fell in love with this name. I already loved the sound "eve" in names, but couldn't decide on one I liked: Eve was taboo (biblical character, plus things like Christmas Eve); Eva was boring; Evangelina/Evangeline would inevitable have the horrid nickname "Angie" or, God forbid, "Vange"; and Evelyn sounds way too mature. And then Geneva popped in my head one day.

Also, of any city name used as a person's name, Geneva is probably the best. As an international diplomatic city, it has played a key part in so many global resolutions (i.e. Geneva Conventions), and is in general a place of beauty. (Unfortunately, I have only seen pictures, but I intend to go there one day.)

Geneva, the second most populated city in Switzerland, is considered to have some of the highest quality of life in the world as well as being one of the most expensive cities to live in.

This doesn't sound like a name to me, probably because of lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

My name! I have ALWAYS loved my name. I love that hardly anyone has it. I was thinking of naming my daughter Geneva but I didn't. My whole family calls me Neva and I don't mind it.
