If you are in Quebec people say Jsohn-Vi-Ev. If you are in France or Europe people ususally say Jsen-E-Vi-Ev. And in the US most say Jen-E-Vieve. I lived abroad so I heard them all. I really like my name, and am constantly grateful my parents gave it to me.

I was named after my paternal(Emma Genevieve) and my maternal (Pauline) grandmothers. There are also several distant relatives with the name, so it must be something from the "old country." I love my name, and although many people can't spell/pronounce it, it's always made me feel special.
