Please help us decide between Sophia and Georgia. Sophia is beautiful but is it too popular? What do you think of Georgia? We know a Georgia, but not that well. Does that matter? All thoughts/opinions welcome! We're really stuck!

I love both your names- DSD1 is one of them, and the other was on our shortlist for DD2, so I am biased though grin
Sophia can be shortened easily by peers- "Soph", which might irritate you in the future, whereas Georgia is harder to naturally shorten.
Sophia is a little more popular at the moment I think (we know a teen, and 2x 6yr olds), but only know teenager Georgia's; although I think it's making a comeback.
Good luck with choosing smile

Like both but prefer Georgia it's far less common 😊

I love Georgia. Sadly ExH vetoed it because it was his cousin's name (who I met twice in over 10 years!)
Dd2 is a Sophie & if I'd realised quite how popular it was locally I would have used Louisa instead but it's a lovely name & even I shorten it to Soph despite never shortening Dd1's name

They're both beautiful [helpful] grin how about Georgia Sophia? That way you get to use them both, and the popularity of Sophia won't be as much of an issue as a MN? Sofia is my dd's middle name (spelt that way as her first name is Welsh so the spelling looks better with her first name). I think Sophia is one of the most beautiful girls names ever.

I like both.

Weirdly, there are more Georgia's in my area than Sophia's.

Sophia is nice. I'm not keen on Georgia but I do like Georgina.

SuperBeagle Sat 08-Apr-17 23:49:51

I love both of them.

I'd choose Georgia though, as it's less popular and less likely to date.

I like Georgia more as it's less common now, however there are so many Georgias amongst my DD's peers (she's nearly 18), there were four in her school year alone out of 80 girls as it was quite a popular name 20-15 years ago.

Both are nice names but I prefer Georgia as it's a lot less common

I love Georgia. Can be anything really - classy, tomboyish, cute - would suit any girl.

Georgia is fab and on my list
They are both lovely but I think Georgia is pretty, feminine yet strong

Sofiatheworst Sun 09-Apr-17 11:33:37

Georgia definitely!

I know an adult Georgia, 2 teenage Georgias and a 9 year old Georgia. All of whom are lovely.

I think it's a really nice name.

Friolero Sun 09-Apr-17 17:59:23

I much prefer Sophia

SuperSix77 Sun 09-Apr-17 18:25:29

Both pretty names. And similar in style. I prefer Georgia though.

ChippieFishieHorshie Sun 09-Apr-17 18:31:30

I love Georgina (sorry, not helpful)
Georgia and Sophia are both really nice. But Sophia is very popular.
Which is why I slightly prefer Georgia.

I prefer Sophia!
