"This is my name. I never liked it growing up; I always wanted a "normal" name. Nowadays, people play with spelling as the norm, but in 1967 it was not terribly common. Like one of the other posters, I was called a lot....along with myriad other mispronounciations. I get compliments on the uniqueness a lot now, can't take credit, it was my mother's quirkiness. My dad's name was George and so my name had to be Georgia, so my mom said, "Fine....watch this." And, so Jorja was the result. Really don't mind being different now." Aug. 4, 2011:

"My name is Jorja as well. I was born in 1963 and named after my grandfather George. The spelling of my name came out of the T.V. guide from an actress who was married to the author Sidney Sheldon. My grandmother thought that spelling my name J-O-R-J-A was a more feminine way of spelling Georgia. Growing up, I never liked my name as it was different and I was made fun of as a result. My name was and has been always mispronounced. Now, at the age of 51 yrs. of age, I really like my name and how it is spelled. Jorja Arleen Campbell, Olympia, WA" May. 17, 2014:

"My daughter named her little girl, Jorja, after seeing the name in the credits of the tv show, CSI. It fits her to a tee--she is smart, quirky, and very personable. People like the name and it's not a common name." Feb. 7, 2009:
