I prefer this to Genevieve, which is not as uncommon as some may think.

This is also the German form of the name.

The Celtic form Genovefa, which seems to be cognate with the Irish name Findabair, can be translated as "The White Enchantress" or "The White Fay/Ghost", from Proto-Celtic *Windo- "white, fair, holy" + *seibara "magical being" (cognate with Old Irish síabair "a spectre, phantom, supernatural being [usually in pejorative sense]").

Despite the name's similarity to the Old English words jenefer, genefer and jinifer.

Czech version is Jenovefa.
