Georgia looks like it was very popular about 15 years ago from what i can gather, but what about now? Is it a classic or has it had its day and is it now outdated? Do you like it?
Thanks!

I really like it! Would be on my list if we were having a girl smile

I know a few Georgias, all about 19 or 20 now. I've never liked the name. Georgia is an American state to me. I think Georgina is miles better.

It's lovely. All the ones round here are Jorja or Jeorgia though, which is not so lovely IMO!

Love it!

Beautiful, I know a Georgia who is the loveliest girl inside and out

I've always liked it. Probably more so now it's less common.

I like it and Georgie too

I think it's a classic name. My daughter's middle name is Georgette but I wanted her to be a Georgeva. They're all old classic names. hmm

I love it
Love Georgina too which I think is more classic

Sorry, it's a no from me.

I like it and I like Georgina too.

Hate George which is weird.

Bit boring.

I like it a lot. Only met one in my life who is about 30 now.

Prefer Georgina, Georgie as a shortened version.
I like Georgia but detest Jorja.
2 friends have daughters called Georgina. One is Georgie and the other is Gina. Wasn't keen on the nn Gina, but she's pretty and cool and it suits her very well.

I do like it always think of the Ray Charles song.

I love it. Really like Georgie or George as nick name too.

Love Georgina, classic name.

Georgia is also nice - just prefer Georgina.

I've always liked it.

I really like it. I've only ever met one Georgia who would be 15 now. It's a sweet name

It's not a classic name.

It's the name of a country & an American state.

I don't like it at all, but I do like Georgina.

I used to like it but know a couple of Georgias (early 20s) who are full of themselves and were school bullies so it put me right off the name.

Movablefeast Sun 03-Dec-17 19:06:55

Drama I don't know about the history of the country but the American state was founded in 1733 as a British colony and was named for a British king, George II. Georgia has always been a classic feminization of George.
