Thoughts? I think the nickname Georgie is really cute, but I'm not sure if the full version is overused at this point... What sorts of stereotypes come with it? Looking to flesh out our girls' list.

don't encourage a rash of them we're about to use it!

Lol, I know, right?? Shhhh...

LegArmpits Thu 18-Apr-13 15:51:47

My DDs name, we used with the intention of nn Georgie but it's never stuck!

LegArmpits Thu 18-Apr-13 15:52:31

No others in her school by the way. And I've only ever met one other.

Still18atheart Thu 18-Apr-13 15:58:02

I love it.

JollyPurpleGiant Thu 18-Apr-13 15:58:32

I love it too. DH doesn't sad

Good to know, LegArmpits (nice handle, btw). We're having twins, and other names in the running are Felicity/Philippa/Vivienne for girls and Felix/Maxwell/Isaac for boys.

Thinking Felicity and Georgina (Flick and Georgie) could be a nice pairing if we got a set of girls.

Lovely name, classic and underused.

Love it (that and Georgia), wanted it for my baby but it doesn't go with our surname sad

Georgie is cute, but I dislike Georgina.

Much prefer Georgia.

I love nn George or Georgie but I don't love the full Georgina.

I've known a couple over the years and they've all been totally different so I'm not sure about the stereotype. One was a tomboy, the other a real girly girl and the other really quirky and alternative. All lovely girls though!

Ps, I love Tilly and Georgie for twins!

BNmum Thu 18-Apr-13 16:38:47

Just realised Tilly wasn't on your list, I'm not sure where it came from but I still love it

Its nice but imo Georgia is nicer and can still use Georgie too

Georgia is not as nice as Georgina which is a lovely classical name. I also live Stephanie.

Love, not live!

Georgina is a good classic name, I know two who go by Gina as their nn.

I know a three year old Georgina her nn is Gee.

It is a nice name but I do know a few under five.

Much prefer Georgiana.

MrsJohnDeere Sat 20-Apr-13 12:47:02

Like it.

Georgina is a nice name (and a "proper" name). I like Georgiana but it rhymes with vagina so couldn't ever use it.

squoosh Sun 21-Apr-13 14:50:13

I would pronounce Georgiana as geor-jee-anna, that's how Mr Darcy says it so must be right wink

How the heck do you pronounce vagina?

PoppyAmex Sun 21-Apr-13 14:53:32

It's a really lovely name, but please don't let anyone call her Gina!

CruCru Sun 21-Apr-13 15:03:41

The Duchess of Devonshire pronounced her name as "George - ay - na".

CruCru Sun 21-Apr-13 15:04:33

Actually that is wrong, it was George - eye - na".

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Sun 21-Apr-13 16:35:34

I am biased as I have a Georgia nn Georgie.

It is a fab name. I didn't actually pick it - my stepson did.

I also like Georgina, Georgiana and Georgette, which I think deserves a resurgence.

fussychica Sun 21-Apr-13 17:01:18

Georgia is lovely.

LittleMissLucy Sun 21-Apr-13 17:52:11

I love Georgia and Georgina both very sweet, posh names.
But Gina is not a name I like at all.

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Sun 21-Apr-13 19:21:59

The D of D pronounced it George-jay-na...?

sparklechops Sun 21-Apr-13 19:25:09

Classic and cool. It's my lovely cousin's name. She is in her twenties and has never really shortened it.

Great name smile I know one who gets Georgie

MortifiedAdams Mon 22-Apr-13 16:16:22
