I just assumed the popularity of Georgia
was due to the popularity of George
which also became very popular in the '90s (and has always been used anyway due to royal connections and George
being the patron saint of England). Georgia Taylor
may have had some influence, in that she was in Coronation Street which is the most popular TV show in Britain (and was in the '90s) and the soaps are always featured in the papers and magazines.
The name Georgina
was well known, maybe people got bored of that and just wanted an alternative to that and then Georgia
really took off? I hadn't thought about it until now, I must admit.
