Hi everyone, looking for some honest advice.

What do you think of Alice George for a little girl?!

We're keen to have a family link or something sentimental for her middle name but have a selection of bad female names in our family! We do however have a male George and a female George in the family as well as a close female friend called George (who was my husband's best man!) The females are both Georgina but only known as George.

Do you think it's too masculine and weird? Or just something fun/quirky? And does it work with Alice?

Honest opinions please!! Thanks smile

I really like it. X

I think you should give her a fuller more feminine version so she can make her own mind up later. Georgia, Georgie, Georgina or others like that which can be shortened back to George.

Alice George is so cool I'd be tempted to use both names all the time! She'll be a singer when she grows up, great stage name!

Georgia, Georgie, Georgina or others like that which can be shortened back to George.

Agreed.

Personally I'd use Georgina. Alice George sounds cool tho

Alice Georgia.

George is a boy's name. Georgia and Georgina are both perfectly nice girl's versions.

Love it. I wouldn't 'feminise' it is can't see the point.

MotherofA Sun 29-Jan-17 22:25:02

Georgie? Cute idea though like it !

NameChange30 Sun 29-Jan-17 22:27:43

All of you who like George as a middle name for a girl, would you use Georgia or Georgina as a middle name for a boy?

Flippingecktucker Sun 29-Jan-17 22:38:24

It's lovely, and very cool.

Catherinebee85 Sun 29-Jan-17 22:43:48

I love Alice George. It's quirky and cool. I don't like Georgina but Georgia is ok. Don't see why you should have to make it more feminine though if the name George has meaning for you x

I don't really get this recent trend (possibly only on MN!) for suggesting/using boys' names for girls. And then getting annoyed about "genderising" names.

YY would you call a boy Georgina? And if you did, don't you think it might make his life difficult? George is a boys' name. It's DS2's middle name actually so I really like it. But I wouldn't call a girl George. Or Jeremy. Or Patrick. Or Henry. Just as I wouldn't call a boy Emily. Or Sophia. Or Arabella. Or Felicity. Some names are unisex, but most are gendered. Middle names I agree are less vital, but they do come out at exam time and other times and I think there is no point setting your child up to be laughed at. What's wrong with Georgia or Georgina or Georgiana?

Yes. Alice George, just as it is.

Sophronia Mon 30-Jan-17 01:11:05

I'd go with Alice Georgina. I don't think she'd appreciate having George as a middle name.

HerRoyalNotness Mon 30-Jan-17 01:27:51

I really like it as is. It works

MrsMeeseeks Mon 30-Jan-17 08:11:45

Yes, I like it.

Stuffedshirt Mon 30-Jan-17 08:19:46

Georgia is lovely.

George is a common surname and all the females with it as a surname are not seen as any more masculine than any other female. Therefore as a middle name I think it's lovely. Alice George is a beautiful name. Go with it. Most people don't routinely use their middle name anyway.

NameChange30 Mon 30-Jan-17 09:29:39

That's a weird argument. There are lots of masculine surnames and no/few feminine ones. Why make all first and middle names masculine as well?!

Yes, I think you can use George on it's own. It works for both the male and female relatives who are known as George
