Genoveffa is the Italian form of Celtic Genovefa/Genovèva (in French Genevieve), probably meaning "Race Of Women," "Juniper Tree," or "With White Cheeks Or Face". Variant of the Old French Genava.

January 3rd is the nameday, feastday, and memory of the maiden St. Genevieve, who lived in the 5th century.

It is now rare in Italian, because of some ridiculous or bad characters, such as the main character of the comic strip "Genoveffa la racchia" ("racchia" means a really ugly woman), and Cinderella's sister Drizella that, in Italian, is named Genoveffa.

'Tis a shame that this name is now quite unpopular in Italy. It sounds pretty. It's especially unfortunate that it had to get associated with the obnoxious Drizella Tremaine.
