The term Gendermars was coined in 2016 or possibly earlier, as the tumblr blog mogai-lexicon posted about it on 20 February of that year, but did not indicate whether it was a new coining at that time. In May 2017, Genderfaun was coined by tumblr user shadowofthedude, who stated it would be a synonym of gendermars and a complementary term to genderfae.

In the 2019 Worldwide Gender Census, eleven respondents were genderfaun. In the 2020 Gender Census, 50 respondents (0.203% of all respondents) reported they were genderfaun.
