Hi all due very soon having a girl- we have finally agreed on a name I liked very old-fashioned names my partner does not but we have finally agreed on ...............Georgia Elizabeth.
Can I ask what is your opinion?
Do you think Georgia is chavvy?
Thanks for any feedback

I like it, very pretty and will suit at every age

Mollydoggerson Mon 14-Jan-13 17:23:16

Not Chavvy - Lovely.

FellatioNels0n Mon 14-Jan-13 17:26:45

Honestly? Really honestly?

Yes I do. Sorry.

I used to love it (15 years ago) but it has a certain association for me now based on the people I have known who called their children it.)

However, Georgina and Georgiana I LOVE LOVE LOVE.

FellatioNels0n Mon 14-Jan-13 17:27:21

And Elizabeth is beautiful.

I like Georgia and don't think it's chavvy but then again I hate when people as "is that chavvy" almost as much as I hate when people are "Is that posh"

Not a fan of Elizabeth, but in general not a fan of middle names as I think they are a bit redundant (personally)

I don't think it's chavvy but it's too close to Georgina for me, and I can't stand the name Georgina!thats just me though, I know of 2 Georgia's and neither are chav's xx

Lovely name - not chavy to my ears (but they are foreign ears...)

ladymia Mon 14-Jan-13 17:30:20

meant *I hate when people asK "is that chavvy" almost as much as I hate when people aSK "Is that posh"

It is a US state...not sure why one would name a child after a state? It is like calling someone Texas or Boston...

Sorry, find it a bit strange.

Much prefer Georgina.

akaemmafrost Mon 14-Jan-13 17:33:10

I think its lovely.

BouncyPenguin Mon 14-Jan-13 17:38:03

Great names. Doesn't matter that others don't like it. You'll be the one using the name 1000 times a day.

AgathaTrunchbull Mon 14-Jan-13 17:38:56

Georgia definitely better than Georgina. Georgia the state named after George II, so only the feminine version of 'George'.

I think it's pretty. Wouldn't have said chavvy.

curlyclaz13 Mon 14-Jan-13 17:56:03

love it, I would have Georgia on my list but OH's surname makes it to many g's.

Flatbread Mon 14-Jan-13 17:59:30

That might well be the case, Agatha. But Georgia, the state, is considered, erm, pretty southern still in outlook. Sexist and racist in many ways.

Not the best connotations with the name, tbh.

Well if this is your final decision, you won't care what a load of old bats on the internet think!

Tbh I'm not overfond of Georgia but I really like Georgiana and Georgina is better than Georgia too imho.

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 14-Jan-13 18:42:52

Thanks all good to get mixed repsonces as I know that doesn't bother me smile not worried at all about the US connection I didn't think of that for a long time

NonnoMum Mon 14-Jan-13 18:48:08

Lovely - but another suggestion - Georgette?

Wishfulmakeupping Mon 14-Jan-13 18:49:59

I did think about georgette/georgina but preferred Georgia- I also like Georgiana but OH not keen

MrsBungleBear Mon 14-Jan-13 18:50:14

It's a nice name.

Anonymumous Mon 14-Jan-13 18:51:55

If you were planning to spell it as Jorja, that would be chavvy. You will probably get away with Georgia! wink

toobreathless Mon 14-Jan-13 18:53:25

Personally I don't like Georgia, but that's just me, I don't think it's 'chavvy.'

Agree with whoever suggested Georgina or Georgiana, love these.

Elizabeth is beautiful, timeless and elegant, I can't think of anything bad to say about it.

MarmaladeSkies Mon 14-Jan-13 19:14:05

Georgia is lovely.

I like it loads.
