Love it. I know none.

Beautiful name. I know shit loads of them though.

Don't know any but love it.

I know one, and one other with a really weird spelling. I like it.

Love it, gaining popularity where I am

I like it, hearing it quite often now

Don't know any little Georgias. Ten years ago I was working with 14/15 old girls and they were all called either Georgia, Lauren, Jade, Jasmine or Olivia.

I like it a lot and most of the Georgias I know are teens. I really dislike Georgina for some reason though.

I really like Georgina but dislike Georgia for some reason. I don't know any.

I like it. Don't know any.

It was in my top 3 when we named our DD. Love it and would use it if we had another girl (and if DP allowed it)

Love it and I like George as a shortening. I know of a 7 year old and a 19 yr old Georgia. They are both v likeable and both make me laugh my head off regularly, so for me it's a very good vibe name.

DandySeaLioness Thu 24-Aug-17 00:22:25

simply beautiful!

notangelinajolie Thu 24-Aug-17 00:36:10

It's lovely.

Slightly different name but I really wanted to name DD3 Georgiana (pronounced George ay nah) but it wasn't my turn so I lost.

DD3 is now 16 and suits her other name but loves Georgiana and says she is calling her first DD Georgiana smile

Forgot to say, yes I know 2 Georgia's. DD's 2 & 3 who are now 22 &16 both had schoolfriends with that name. They were both very cool and 'georgeous'.

Love it ❤️

SuperBeagle Thu 24-Aug-17 00:51:56

Love it.

Would've loved to have used it, but there's a Tom Waits song by the same name (Georgia Oursurname), and the content and inspiration for the song are very sad.

SuperBeagle Thu 24-Aug-17 00:54:05

Oh, and I know loads of Georgias but they're all the same age as me. Don't know any much younger! I was born in a town of only a couple hundred people, and in my street alone, there were two Georgias born within ten days of me. shock I was in school with a few as well.

But that wouldn't put me off. Madeleine was also an exceedingly popular name, but it isn't anymore. smile

Sophronia Thu 24-Aug-17 02:25:17

It's a bit 90s, fits with Megan, Lauren, Bethany etc. I prefer Georgina as it feels more classic.

Jooni Thu 24-Aug-17 04:10:12

I don't know many, doesn't seem too popular round here.

It's nice enough, but I find it a bit dull and a bit dated as Sophronia said.

HillaryWinshaw Thu 24-Aug-17 05:17:50

Beautiful. I know one, around 7 years old.

MammieBear Thu 24-Aug-17 07:37:14

It's very popular in Merseyside I do like though, makes me think of the ray charles song.

Ohyesiam Thu 24-Aug-17 07:41:10

Really love it. Elegant and feisty.
I know a 45 year old, and a 10 year old ( but her parents ruined it for her by for her by spelling it Jorja).
