How does one pronounce Georgiana, is it one n or Georgianna? Also is it a better middle name for Matilda than Georgina?

Jor-jee-anna. It's one name.

I think its Geor-jayna but I'm not sure

LizzieVereker Fri 21-Feb-14 21:40:09

I think it's usually pronounce Jaw- jay-nah.

But I think Jaw-gee-arn-ah is prettier.

I love it and would love to use it, but the child would spend their life correcting peoples pronunciation, so I can't.

I'd say:


Slight emphasis on the ah.

Think Matilda Georgiana flows better than Matilda Georgina (how I pronounce it it does anyway!) smile

It's supposed to be Jor-jay-nah but you will have people telling you it's Jor-je-arr-nah.

Agree with LizzieVereker on the pronunciation.

I also think it's a bit too fussy a middle name for Matilda.

It's a version of a family name we need to include, don't really like Georgina or Georgia but do like Georgiana. Just want whatever version fits best with first name Matilda!

Jor -jee- ar- nah

MaxsMummy2012 Fri 21-Feb-14 22:04:45

It's spelt that way in the film 'The Duchess' and they pronounce it jor-jay-nah.

Ohmydarlin Fri 21-Feb-14 22:48:11

Jor Jane nah

It's a lovely name but two three syllable names both ending in 'a' doesn't really flow.
