I had the biggest crush on this girl named Gia in primary school. She had this 'untouchable, cool person' aura and she had so so so much swag. Plus she was a game queen, like she beats everyone at video games AND she's so sporty, she was the best out of all the girls and boys on the track team, and she was a GODDESS at long jump. Gia was just her nickname that everyone called her by.

I think Gia is a Filipino name, seeing as she is half Filipino and half Greek. I love the name Gia so much but in my opinion, the name is more suited towards a 'cool person'.

Gia is not just a nickname... it's become a stand alone name. It's simple, beautiful and best of all, Italian. Oh, it's my daughters name too. Lol.

I love the name Gia. We named our daughter, born in 1979, Gia Marie. Our surname is of Italian origin and rather long, so Gia fits perfectly!

People know the names Gia, Gianna, Giavanna, Giovanna, and Giovanni. I don't know if people know this kind of spelling for it, but my family and I spell my full name Giavonna. So it's different but, that's the good thing.

A bit too short sounding on its own, but I think it's great as a nickname for Giovanna, Gianna, Ginevra, etc.

A short yet beautiful name with a great meaning.
Perfect for Italian families, Christian families, and families looking for something sweet and modern.

This is a very feminine and pretty name. Short, strong yet beautiful. Universal as well. My husband is an English South African and I am a Portuguese South African, and this name works with both sides of our families...

Celebrity Mario Lopez's daughter is called Gia. Also, Gia Allemand is a swimsuit model and bachelor contestant. It's a stunning name that a child can grow up with and not worry that she's outgrown the name!

It's a bit minimalist for my taste, but it's a pretty cool name. I just can't get over the Gia Carangi association. I've seen the movie, and the way she died wasn't exactly pleasant.
