Sounds like something you'd name a poodle (sorry!).

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.

Gigi is also a cute nickname for a girl with the name Giana or Gianna.

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.

Famous Actress Audrey Hepburn played a characer named Gigi in a play of the same title.

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.

There is a character on Gilmore Girls called Gigi. It is short for Georgia.

Sounds like a good name for a poodle.

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.
CJsbestfriend13  10/13/2009
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.
Francesca  2/2/2012
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.
luxsword  4/28/2014
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.
missy vera  6/17/2014
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.
Marauder  8/30/2014
Both my MIL and my mom have first names starting with G. So we are planning on naming our first born daughter both names and giving her the nickname GiGi, after the two G names. Adorable! And if she wants to use something more sophisticated she can use her full name.

The name Gigi is unique, common, simple, and well known. It is a perfect name for a girl. Its origin comes from Italy, Spain, and France among other countries. I personally would love to call my daughter Gigi. It is the sweetest name for a smart girl. The name resembles beauty, a warm heart, creativity, talented, and friendly, a person of nature and peace. Not only the name itself, but think about the personality a Gigi would show around others. "that girl named Gigi has a heart of gold".

There's a model named Gigi Hadid.

My great grandmother went by Gigi. It's fun and cute!
lilpimpteller  7/20/2015
More of a nickname than a given name. Hard to imagine a Supreme Court Justice named "Gigi." A great nickname for Gwendolyn, Goldie, Gretta... or a girl who is a lot of fun, laughs a lot, and is warm and friendly.

The transsexual beauty youtuber, Gigi Lazzarato (Gigi Gorgeous).
xMaddyLocke  10/30/2015
I like how people's attitudes have changed in the last 10 years just reading all the comments above me! From "it's a name for a poodle, sorry!" to... "there's a model, New York socialite, youtube personality, etc. named Gigi"! How much time changes. This just proves there is no such thing as a good or bad name, only thinking makes it so!
Gigi Mack  12/16/2015
The model, Gigi Hadid, born Jelena Noura Hadid.

In Italian Gigi is a male name and it's a diminutive of Luigi (Lewis).

My 7 year old's best friend is named Gigi, and I absolutely love it. It fits her perfectly - I couldn't imagine this sweet, beautiful and spirited girl being named anything else! Those who don't like the name probably haven't met a Gigi yet.

Lovely nickname. Reminded me of my elder sister Gillyam, which her friends called Gigi, and also of Beatriz "Gigi" Fernandez the tennis player.

Gigi is a common nickname for the French name Brigitte.

I love the name Gigi because its short and easy to pronounce. I'm Gillian so in short I am called GiGi, which is adorable.
rutendo  9/12/2017
If you look up 'Grandma' in Polish you will get Gigi as one of the names. My daughter wanted me to have a fun grandma name. Not just grandma so we looked it up based on my nationality and she wants me to be Gigi because it is fun like me.
