Jorja is the name of the American actress, Jorja Fox, who plays "Sara Sidle" on the hit TV series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation". Yes it's her given name, and her full first name is Jorja-An.

I think Georgia is a very pretty name, but Jorja just ruins it. The Spanish form of George is Jorge, pronounced HAWR-he. Jorja reminds me of this name, and looks like it should be pronounced Hawr-ha, which sounds like a pretty bad word for a girl.

I really like the name Jorja. Spelling it 'Georgia' makes it look too much like another one of those male-turned-into-female-names. This spelling is much nicer.
-- ArtemisTheHunter  1/8/2006
Nice name but I prefer the spelling Georgia.
-- Anonymous User  5/28/2006
For some reason I really, really like this name. I like this spelling better than Georgia.

Jorja seems Scandinavian to me.

In my opinion, this is such an unflattering variant. It looks like some little kid misspelled it, or whatever.

A famous bearer is Czech actress Jorga Kotrbová.

This spelling is just bizarre. It looks so rude and harsh.
-- Jasmine  3/24/2007
Also can it pronounced as "Zhor-zha".
-- Karcoolka  4/16/2007
Why? What's wrong with Georgia?
-- arrowhead909  8/20/2007
One famous bearer is Czech moderator Jorga Hrušková.

Name your daughter Jorja and just convince the world you're illiterate every time you have to correct the way people are going to spell it! Look, if you just can't bear spelling it "Georgia", then pick just one half of the name to mess with, huh? Like, "Jorgia". Whaddya think? Good compromise?
-- leananshae  12/18/2007
Or use the Italian spelling Giorgia. Anything's better than Jorja!
-- leananshae  12/19/2007
Jorja in Spanish would be hore-ha. So no, I don't think it's a very pretty way of spelling Georgia.
-- visitor27  2/13/2008
This horrible spelling makes the parents and kids alike appear illiterate. I've read that Jorja Fox always had to convince people that really, she can spell, and her name is spelled like that.

An absolute cock-up of a spelling. While Georgia is the most popular version (yay!) in New Zealand, Jorja has been found for years there. I doubt Jorja Fox was the inspiration. I refuse to say JOR juh. It's only HOR ha.

This spelling of Georgia is pretty bad. Jorja looks as if the parents were either very "creative" (in a bad way) or just too dumb to spell Georgia correctly. I remember that when I was little I heard the name Gina and had no idea how to spell it so I just decided it had to be Jina. I figured out the correct spelling pretty quickly, though. So when I hear of parents naming a kid Jorja I think hmmmm maybe they heard the name somewhere and didn't know what it was or how to spell it so they thought it had to be Jorja. It also makes me think of the name of my Spanish teacher Jorje (male) so I want to give it a Spanish pronunciation.

It looks like it should be pronounced "HOHR-huh," which is just terrible. Yes it is pronounced "JOHR-juh," but still.
-- Anonymous User  1/3/2009
Too lazy to spell "Georgia" or is "Georgia" not "cree8tyv" enough? At least people can spell "Georgia"!
-- gaelruadh19  1/27/2009
I really do not like this spelling at all. It's too obvious, like someone who can't spell and does it all phonetically. Georgia looks so much prettier.
-- Anonymous User  11/11/2009
I agree. When I first saw this name, I thought it was a of feminisation of Jorge, pronounced HOR-ha. Now I see it's a form of Georgia. Truly, some parent's creativity amazes me.
-- Anonymous User  2/20/2010
I have also seen it spelled Jorga. Yuk!
-- keepitreal  1/22/2011
I think this name should be arrested for crimes against the person, as the English legal expression goes. Why mangle the beautiful traditional spelling Georgia into this kr8tiv travesty? Ugh!
-- Just Jonquil  4/29/2012
I strongly dislike the name Jorja. Even the sound of it's not that pretty. But when you spell it like Georgia, it makes it much more classic and elegant. I actually like it spelled this way. Spelling matters.
-- Anonymous User  6/9/2012
I find this name to be so lowbrow and full of "white trashy-ness" I have to comment.. I have FB friend with a child with this name; I just can't get over how silly of a name this is.. geez..
-- wmchase65  6/27/2013
No matter which spelling is chosen, I still dislike this name as it doesn't sound very feminine to me. 'Jorja' looks very odd.
-- Anonymous User  8/10/2014
I love the name Jorja, hence why I called my beautiful daughter Jorja!
I think this modern take on the name sounds pretty and looks more feminine than the old fashioned version.
-- Vanessa Jorja  5/17/2015
The pronunciation is quite easy, if you consider the English 'Geoffrey' in the United States is spelled 'Jeffrey' with the 'J' being articulated as a 'Gee', not an 'aich (H), as if 'Heffrey'.
