EtymologyEdit

From Latin Genua, as the city was known by the ancient Ligurians; probably from the Ligurian word for "knee", from Proto-Indo-European *ǵnéwo- (knee), a thematic derivative of Proto-Indo-European *ǵónu, in this sense "angle," from its geographical position, thus akin to Geneva.

  • (US) IPA(key): /ˈdʒɛn.ou.ə/, /dʒɛnˈou.ə/
