Origin of the name GANORE.
Etymology of the name GANORE.
Meaning of the baby name GANORE.

  

GANORE.  A British form of Welsh Gwenhwyvar (q.v.), meaning "swelling white wave." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Also spelled Ganora and Gaynor.  Charnock makes this name Teutonic, from Winifred.

    GUENEVER.  This female name, which is found written Guenevere, Guinivere, Genovova (in British, Gwenhwyfar, Gwenfrewi, Ganivre, and Ganore; in Cornish Jennifer; in It. Ginevra and Zinevra; in Fr. Gervéve and Généviève; in Med. L. Genovefa), is said by some to be of Celtic origin, and to mean "white wave;" but this is impossible.  Catherinot de Bourges derives it from Zenobia, but, as Ménage says, the name is of Teutonic, not of Greek, origin.  The name is a corruption of Winifred q.v. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882).
