Hi Genie,
We are looking for a baby girl name. We would like to use grandmother's name Genevieve or a version of it. We like Neve or Nevieve for a first name.... can't seem to find a middle. What do you think?

I love Genevieve! Have you considered Geneva? It's a little less weighty and sassier.

I love Genevieve! And I agree that Geneva is a lovely option if you dislike Genevieve.

Genevieve Summer
Genevieve Elaine
Genevieve Dawn
Genevieve Noelle

I also liked Genevieve Adele and Genevieve Lucille.

Geneva Brianne

Geneva Camille was a great suggestion as well.

:) I vote for Genevieve. It's a beautiful name. How about Genevieve Rochelle? Genevieve Monique?

I love Genevieve as name, and I don't think you should tamper with it. It's really beautiful. But if you have to have a different version: Geneva, Ginette, Guinevere.

When using a beautiful and complete name like Genevieve you should stick to the basic or not very strong mn's like:

Genevieve Marie
Genevieve Aurora
Genevieve Alice
Genevieve Fiona
Genevieve Olivia
Genevieve Claire

I agree with everybody that Genevieve is a lovely name, and Geneva an option. I also love the French pronunciation of Genevieve, although it may be a bit pretentious and people who speak English might have a problem with it (French pronunciation is like jon vee ev with the "G" actually sounding more like in the word "genre," or the sound of the "z" in the color "azure.")

Neve could always be a nickname...
