"My mom is German and we pronounce my name Ge-no-fe-fa. (The G is pronounced like the G in gate). As far as I am aware it has Germanic roots. People struggle to pronounce the name the way I think sounds correct. I therefore often introduce myself as Genevieve. People find it a lot easier. I really like my name and it is great that my close family and friends use the real version of my name." Jan. 25, 2010:
