What do you think?
Is the spelling Jorja naff?

SharkyandGeorge Thu 09-Oct-08 14:19:02

Jorja is awful sorry, other two not to my taste either but really dislike the 'J' spelling.

Jorja looks as though it might be pronounced "Yorya"

RubySlippers Thu 09-Oct-08 14:19:42

yep - Jorja is super naff

i know a gorgeous Georgia

i like it

Is Jorga made up? Personally I think it's naff of the highest order but that is my opinion and not one that should be taken seriously if you're considering it. Honestly it isn't good though.

Jorja is terrible, everyone who ever has to spell her name will think 'oh, must have been hard for her, having illiterate parents'. Sorry but better to hear it now than after you've registered the birth!

Jorja???? No No No!

Elliekate Thu 09-Oct-08 14:27:28

Its ok,i suspected as much grin
Someone suggested it to DP and he really liked it-one of the actresses off CSI spells it like this apparently.
I reaaly like Georgia though

Jorja... no!
Looks like you've only ever HEARD the name Georgia and never seen it used.
However Georgia and Georgina are lovely

Georgina - there are just so many Georgias now (although I agree it's a nice name). Am allergic to made-up spellings like Jorja!

daizydoo Thu 09-Oct-08 14:33:43

Well I like Jorja!!

DorrisMcWhirter Thu 09-Oct-08 21:07:37

Altogether now... 'We're leavin', on a midnight train to Georgia...'

DoubleBluff Thu 09-Oct-08 21:07:42

Georgia and Georgina both lovely. Jorga - yuk (sorry!).

slackrunner Thu 09-Oct-08 21:12:56

Jorga is terrible (sorry!)

I like Georgina.

Love Georgina because it's one of dd3's names.
Georgia is quite common here but nice.
I know a girl called Jorja and presumed she was named after some sleb. Don't like it but not sure why

SquiffyHock Thu 09-Oct-08 21:15:34

Georgina or (one of my favorite names) Georgiana which you never hear.

Cantmakedecisions Thu 09-Oct-08 21:16:40

Georgina definitely-think it has a certain 'edge' too it-sort of funky and often shortened to Georgie. Georgia is lovely but very popular it seems. As for Jorja-no,no,no!!-sounds like you're trying too hard.

MrsThierryHenry Thu 09-Oct-08 21:17:18

I don't like any of them. Sorry! I think they're all rather poncy.

MrsThierryHenry Thu 09-Oct-08 21:17:50

Isn't there a Jorja Fox...a US aktorka?
