Genny Name Meaning & Origin

Genny

Pronunciation: GEH-nee (key)

Origin of the name Genevieve:

Derived from the Gaulish Genovefa, a name with Celtic roots but the meaning of which is uncertain. The first element is believed to be from genos (race, people, tribe); the second is possibly from an element meaning "woman." Its alteration in the translation from the Celtic to the French seems to be the cause of the confusion.
