Meaning & History

Russian diminutive of Agrafena, Feodosiya, Feofaniya, Ifigeniya, Trifena and possibly also Yevgeniya. Also compare Genya and Zhenya.

As an Armenian name, it might possibly be a diminutive of Yevgenya.

Lastly, in addition to all of the aforementioned, the name Fenya could possibly also be the Armenian and Russian form of the Greek given name Fenia.

A known bearer of this name was Fenia Chertkoff (1869-1927), a Russian-Argentine educator, feminist and political activist. Please note that Fenia is a variant transcription here: her original name would have been either Феня (Fenya) or Фения (Feniya).
