Comments for GEORGIANA:

Used a lot in 19th and 18th century novels, Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte being two examples of authors who used the name for supporting characters.

This is a beautiful name! It isn't overly used which is one aspect I like about it. It's also very classical and sophisticated. "Georgie" and "Ana" would be great nicknames, too!

I love the name Georgiana, it sounds so proper and is not too common.

We are considering this name for a daughter. My husband's great-grandmother was Georgiana. My only hesitation in using it is that I worry people will have trouble with the pronunciation.

John Keats revised a poem he'd written as a very young man which he'd addressed to "dearest Emma", and replaced this with "Georgiana". So it must have four syllables, with stresses on the first and third, otherwise the metre doesn't work out. And Keats would not have made that kind of mistake.

I hear British people pronounce this name "George-ain-uh". I have also heard it pronounced "Georgi-anna" as well. (Which I personally think sounds better.)

More than anything the name's Greek root meaning farmer is a symbol of humbleness. The main connection is to Saint George, known in the Greek Orthodox faith as the one that fought the dragon of evil and won victoriously over him in the battle. Is a symbol of strength over evil and courage in life over anything.

It is a name that as its religious history means courage and humbleness. Quite unique, a lot of people that I've encountered have never heard of it or it seems quite new to the ears. My Romanian full name was Georgiana Florea meaning "farmers flower" taking the original meaning of the actual word in Greek. The Greeks would call St. George a word with this root, because the saint's actions represented the humbleness of a farmer but the courage of a saint.

Although I don't like the name George for a boy, I love this name for a girl. Like the name Georgia, it's so classy and feminine, and although not very common right now, I think it will come back in fashion soon because of movies like "Pride and Prejudice" and "The Duchess", all having characters with this name. I’ve heard it pronounced both “Georg-ain-hu” and Georg e anna. While I like both pronunciations, I prefer the second.

I much prefer the spelling Georgianna over Georgiana. It seems more classic and feminine to me. Georgiana seems more southern.
-- Nausicaa  3/1/2009
This is a really pretty name. I came across it first while reading "Pride and Prejudice." However, I prefer simply Georgia.
