I have a granddaughter named Georgia. I have 9 grandchildren with 3 girls and it is my favourite name. For a nickname she's Gigi, which the family has shortened to Gig (pronounced jeej) and I still love it. She's 7 now and I think it's a fun girl's name but it will be an elegant woman's name.

Would be a nice name for a daughter, but any surname she'd have would probably make it sound more like a place, such as Georgia Field or Georgia West, for instance.
Hushpuppy  10/24/2017
It’s an okay name, personally I think names with nicknames are cute, and you can easily just call out one syllable to get their attention. I don’t like how the nickname would be Georgie.

Beautiful name! One of my favorite feminine variations of the name George. We have a sweet cousin by the name Georgia, so I have a good impression her name.

My name is also Georgia. Being named after my father (george) makes me feel as though my name is that much more beautiful and special. Although where I live people usually replace the a with an e, and call me Georgie. It is very frustrating. I always hated having my beautiful name misspelled or incorrectly pronounced. Having it turned into a mockery of "Georgie" and the silly nursery rhyme would soon follow, was horrid.

I have a daughter named Georgiana Margaret Grace.

My name is Georgia and although mostly I find people have a generally good perception of the name, I've always found it overly common in people my age (I'm a 90s child) so I never found it special. I don't hate it as much as I did growing up though, because I've grown to like George, which is close. I don't like the Jorja spelling though, it's horrible and I've seen people spell my name that way (like in Starbucks) and it makes me cringe. Really, is it that difficult to learn how to spell a word that is also the name of a country and a state in America not to mention a group of islands? Also, I've suffered my whole life with people imagining there is an 'n' anywhere in my name thus calling me Georgina.

My daughter goes by Gigi to her siblings and George by her father and I. I must say I do not like the spelling Jorja! My daughter is actual Georgia Olivia.

Georgia is a great name. Especially if someone is having twin boy and girl. Then they'll be called George and Georgia. To answer one of the commentaters Questions... No this name isn't as popular in the U.S. This name also reminds me of the fruit. Georgia Peach.
CathyE521  11/19/2013
I am 61 years old and my birth was registered in 1952 in Scotland. My father was told he couldn't register my name because no one in Glasgow had ever been called that before. My father insisted and named me Georgia. I don't really know if I was the first but would love to know.
I did feel a bit self conscience of my modern name when at school and couldn't imagine being old and having my name, but here I am nearly a pensioner and really like it and the meaning of Georgia is me to a T!
Tartanlass  8/15/2013
I don't know about Scotland but the online English censuses indicate that the first babies to be called Georgia were the daughters of Greek merchants based in the UK. These censuses sometimes give Georgia as the names of other girls but these have been misread - a look at the original image shows that their names were in fact Georgina.

This name is so cute! It's my favorite state name and my favorite feminine form of George =) it's a shame it's not used very often in the US anymore.

It's the original of all the Georg- names for girls. I love all of them - even Georgette though don't like the other French one so much, Georgine.
They are all delectable.
Georgia is sunny, warm and rich.

I like it but prefer Georgina or Georgiana like Georgiana Duchess of Devonshire, a famous English duchess of Jane Austen period. Jane Austen had a character called Georgiana in Pride and Prejudice.

Georgia is a really trendy name! It's stylish without being tacky.
starz26  1/16/2011
I am completely bored with this name, due to the enormous amount of little Georgias I encounter. They all seem to be fat too.
keepitreal  1/5/2011
Cute. :) It doesn't exactly roll of the tongue like Ella or Hannah, but it's still a nice name.
Chrila96  12/13/2010
I really don't like this name. I live in Georgia so it just sounds stupid. I was born in Virginia and I don't like the name Virginia either. Hm.

Georgia is a male character in Cold Mountain played by Jack White who marries Renee Zellweger's character Ruby. At first, I thought it was weird that HE was named Georgia, but the movie has made it grown on me for a boy.

Lovely :) My sisters name. Definitely suits a smiley blonde.

I'm not fond of the sharp, squashy sound of Georgia, or how masculine it seems. I also shy away from using place names- I make exceptions, but I don't like state names in general. I'm definitely not planning on using this, but who knows? It's not that bad.
Wilted  4/26/2009
One of my personal faves :) I've always quite liked the name Georgia, because it reminds me of a warm summer day. And I actually absolutely adore the nickname Georgie. Call her Georgie when she's little, and then she can grow into the more mature sounding Georgia.

I personally like my name, it's classy in my opinion.

Georgia Brown (1933-92) was a famous British jazz singer, real name Lilian Klot.
Jonquil  8/29/2008
I love this name for a girl, which is really odd considering that I don't like the name George for a boy. I just think this name is very beautiful and classy, and works well on a little girl and a grown women.
TiffanyS  8/27/2008
I like this name for a girl, it's very sweet and classic and pretty, but the Jorja spelling is awful. And I like the nickname Georgie for a girl.

Everytime I hear this name I think about the American state. I think other spellings as Jorja are better.

I wasn't a big of a fan of the name at first until I met a Georgia and she went by George for short. Now it has grown on me.

Classic and beautiful. Jorja is just sad.

This is my name, and I must say that I really love it. At first, when I was like, five to ten, I hated it, because it wasn't as "modern" as my friends' names (Ashley, Hannah, Taylor, etc.) but now I love it! It's very unique, and is a strong, mature name, as well as a fun, quirky one!

Forgive me, all you Georgias out there, but this name always reminds me of Stalin's country of birth.
H Gravy  6/24/2006
This is my name and I love it. However, it used to be (decades ago -- I'm old) that everyone could spell it. Now I have to spell it out for people. It also used to be that everyone could pronounce it. Now I get Jorj-ee-ah as often as Jor-jah. I think my name is making a bit of a comeback and I'm glad to see it. Mick Jagger has a girl named Georgia.

I have found out a bit of information on Georgia. From the feminine form of George, meaning 'farmer'. She has the stength and insight to meet her high ideals. An emotional person and a natural leader. I am called Georgia and the strange fact is that most of that information is true.

This is the name of both a country in the former Soviet Union and a state of the southern USA.

I think this name is beautiful. It reminds me of someone close to my heart though she did spell it Jorja which I think is pretty too.
Gianna  6/6/2005
This is a beautiful name, one of my favourites. I dislike the spelling Jorja, though. Georgia and Jorja are in the Top 100 in Australia, Georgia is a popular name in England, too. I hope it won´t become too popular in the USA.
