Gigi is a novel by the French writer Colette about a wealthy man who discovers that he is in love with a young Parisian girl who is being groomed for a career as a courtesan, and eventually marries her. It has been made into several plays and films.

The name Gigi is ok for a pet, but I would never name a child Gigi.

My name is Georgia, but I nicknamed myself Gigi when I was little. I couldn't remember how to spell Georgia, but I could remember the two G's. So I announced my name was Gigi. That's pronounced GEE-gee, with no "Z" sound. I gave up Gigi at age 8 when we moved across the country. Still kind of regret it.

There is a character in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events whose full name is Esmé Gigi Genevieve Squalor. She is vile and greedy.

A very cute and sopisticated name. I would name my daughter this, not my dog. Easy for everyone to understand and remember. The French are always unique.

My Gandma's name was Virginia, but everyone called her Gigi. I love it! It makes me think of an artsy French girl.

I like the name for pets better than people, but it's still very cute. :D

This name makes me think about an old, very rich woman who lives in a mansion and is over-the-top in every single way. This sounds like a better name for a poodle.

Gigi sounds to me like a bulky, abrasive nickname.

Gigi is the name of the black cat on Kiki's Delivery Service. He is hilarious. And yeah it's a girl's name, but it's a Japanese show so it could mean something else to them.

Gigi, is the cutest nickname someone could have. I call both my friends that are named Giselle "Gigi" and they love it.

This is a pretty unique name. Often when I hear the name Gigi, I think of a popular girl from someplace like New York or Chicago.

I would think this could be used as a diminutive for any female French name beginning with G. Geneviève, for instance. And not even just French names, as some comments mentioning using it for Georgia. I think that's adorable.

An okay nickname, though chichi.

My real name is Georgine, but I have been called Gigi by my family and friends since I was a baby. I love it! I get so many positive comments on it, and will probably name my first girl Gigi. In a time where parents are trying to outdo each other with long, fancy names, Gigi is a breath of fresh air!

It can also be a masculine nickname, as in Gianluigi "Gigi" Buffon, the Italian footballer.

My mom's name is Germaine, but her sisters call her Gigi. She pronounces it gee-gee, though.
-- blondieboo629  8/1/2011
A splendidly marvelous nickname. Wonderfully dressed in an antique glow; beauty, cosmopolitan, an old-world charm.
I had a relative (now deceased, regrettably) who held it-- which certainly gives emphasized life to my fondness of "Gigi."

The pronunciation favored personally is "GHIH-Ghee"; hard "G"s.

Gigi sounds really trendy and posh- Love it! I think it would be great as a nickname for just about any G name but I like it as a full first name too.
-- Poco  9/11/2012
Cute nickname for any name starting with G :)

Ejigayehu Shibabaw, known by her stage name Gigi, is an Ethiopian singer.

A diminutive, a nickname, indeed, not a name.

My daughter is 3+ months. I named her Gigi because
My father in law's mom was called Gigi in our language.
In my language, I named my daughter Gigi doa.
Doa is tlicho for dora marie after my late mother in law.

There's been a trend over the last few years with grandmothers of new babies deciding they want to be called Gigi, not Grandma or Grandmother; Gigi isn't a popular name for a baby to start with, but this might make even fewer people consider it.
