Genevieve — The Bump
Baby Names

Genevieve

Genevieve is on my very short list for girl names.  I keep seeing it on this board on people's favorite girl name lists.  Is that just because we are all a bunch of name nerds that aren't on the trendy/popular train, or do you think this name is increasing in popularity?  It was 232 last year, but Isabella was in the 200s about 15 years before it became the #1 and #2 name the last few years.  Predictions on Genevieve?

 

Re: Genevieve

  • I think Genevieve is gaining popularity but I don't think it'll be the next Emma or Isabelle. It's just popular because it's part of the old name resurgence.

    I know it makes a lot of name lists on here but I have a feeling it falls into the guilty pleasure name list for a lot of people. I have yet to see any Bumpies actually use it or if so, there's very few. I work in education and don't know a single Genevieve there. The only Genevieve I do know is my 90 year old great aunt..and she's amazing..

    I love it, so I say use it. It's on my list but on a guilty pleasure level because for some odd reason I always have to think too hard about how to spell it in my head...lol.

  • I know one Genevieve who is 2. 

    My guess is that we are nerds.

    Looking at the SSA, it has climbed about 300 spots in the past 20 years. However, I don't see it jumping into the top twenty (hopefully!).

    I think it's gorgeous!

  • I don't see it gaining popularity like Emma or Ava has. I only know one Genevieve and she is 19. I think it's such a pretty name and I love all the nn possibilities!

  • i love love love this name...and do not think it will becometoo popular.


  • I love this name. I will never use it because it sounds ridiculous with my last name. I wouldn't be surprised if it got popular, but I don't think it will be at the very top.

  • I think it is unique and very pretty.   I do not think it will be a common name that you would see on keychains and other gadgets.  With coming up with my daughter's name, I tried to imagine what her name would look like on a wedding invitation.  And I narrowed it down to two names, and then I kept asking people their opinion.

  • I love this name but DH doesn't.  I don't think it is too popular.  I work in an elementary school and I don't know of any kids named Genevieve.
