Re: a RussianJewish name #names

Not an expert but here goes anyway.

1. Gennady is a fairly common Russian male name, maybe a cognate of that?

2. Trying to look up your letters in a Yiddish dictionary I find gimel nun (dash) ayin resh nun meaning "Garden of Eden" or "Paradise" and a phrase including that meaning "May they rest in peace."

3. Geneseiya is like the 7500th-most-common girl baby name on Google, FWIW.
