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.
