"It's a gorgeous, warm, sassy name - reminds me of the great British jazz singer Georgia Brown." Jan. 10, 2014:
"My 3 year granddaughter is named Georgia, inspired by a character (beautiful, smart blonde) on Ally McBeal. I wasn't sure how I liked it at first but it has grown on me, just LOVE the little girl AND the name. Not overused like Emma and Madison, classic and a great song" Mar. 18, 2013:
"My name is Georgia, and it's been a wonderful name to have. People always sing "Georgia on my Mind" when they meet me. The only downside is that in the last year, about 10 people have pronounced it "Geor-gee-uh" I'm not kidding. Grown men and women from America. I've taken to correcting them sharply with "Georgia. Like the STATE." and they always feel embarrassed, as they should. I'm 26 and met 3 other Georgia's in my lifetime. Only 1 Georgeene though. :)" Nov. 2, 2010:
"My Names georgia and people always sing to me either "georgia on my mind" "Brown girl in the ring (Because im half greek)" My mum sings Good Gone girl to me by Mika because it says Her name was georgia and she was gorgeous, Hehe Very flattered, Im 12 and the only georgia in year 8,My Full name is Georgia Sofia Christoforou and people call me Georgie,Its funny and sweet, Hehe xx" Sep. 2, 2010:
"My name is Georgia and I really like it :) It's super unique and cute! Although hearing "Georgia on my Mind" everytime I meet someone got old after like the 500th time haha. Also theres a toliet paper/paper product company name Georgia Pacific which is weird to be like peeing somewhere and see your name on the toilet paper dispenser...haha. I have yet to meet another person who is younger than 50 named Georgia..it's a very old victorian name but it's adorable :) a few people call me Gia and a few call me Geo so the nicknames for the name arn't too harsh! I think you should name your daughter Georgia." Feb. 3, 2010:
"My name is Georgia.
I like it, always have..
I used to get called Georgie-Porgie when i was little.. Actually my Mum still calls me that and im 27.. haha :|
My friends and siblings call me G.
I have met two other people with the same name and they were both blonde (so am i).. So to me it's a very blonde name.. err.. yeah." Dec. 16, 2008:
"My name is Georgia and I love it. I meet a lot of people because of my job, and I'm often complimented on my name. Like one of the previous comments, I also get serenaded with "Georgia On My Mind," but it never gets old. I'm always flattered by it :) The only con is that sometimes people mistakenly call me Georgina or Gloria, but it's a small price to pay. I have never met another Georgia (I've heard of others, though), and it might sound silly, but I kind of don't want to. I like having a name that's not over-the-top-weird, but still pretty unique." Jul. 9, 2008:
"This is my name and people always remember it. :)
I've been serenaded many times with "Georgia on my Mind" and it gets sillier every time. If you name your daughter this, be prepared for a bit of poking fun. It turned out to be a great joke in my family, because my mom is Virginia. :D Just a family of states, aren't we?
I couldn't be happier. It's a very beautiful name, although finding pencils with my name is impossible." Dec. 13, 2007:
"It's been my name for almost 28 years and I love it. I was named for my grandfather George, not the state, but my mother liked the name so much that she almost named my sister Dakota. Geography is great! I know it's cheesy, but I would love to name my daughter Augusta..." Aug. 16, 2007:
"thats my name :D
but mine is spelt jorja!
people always spell it wrong,
i am named after my granmother but my parents decided to spell my name like that so i can have my my own name and feel unique" Feb. 19, 2007:
"Love it, if we have a girl in October she will be Georgia." Feb. 20, 2006:
"My grandaughter's name is Georgia. I think that it is a very beautiful name." Jan. 10, 2006:
"The only correct spelling is Georgia. Jorja is the preferred spelling of illiterates." Aug. 8, 2005:

"My Daughter's name. I have always loved it and always get tons on compliments on her name" Jan. 11, 2014:
"this is my name and I live in England. I always thought that Georgia sounded too masculine and harsh so I've always been known as Georgie which is very unque. It wasn't until I was 11 that I ever went to school or knew personally another Georgia. When I was 11 and moved down South (of England) I was suddenly at school with over 20 Georgia's, in only my year!! I had never thought of it as popular until then. When I was young people always used to spell it wrong. I hated it when they pronounced it Ge-or-ge-a..it's pronounced jor-ja for heavens sake. I hate the spelling Jorja tho!!" Apr. 13, 2012:
"I would suggest giettng her on a tighter schedule. Have her day planned out to an extent. Bath at like 630 then if you want her to go to bed at 8 start giettng ready at 730 Either by reading (dim the lights) or something that will calm her down. Not tv because this will not calm her down. They suggest not to have the tv at least for a 1 hour before the child goes to bed (not even for parents) Set a schedule for what you do right before bed time so she gets the idea. Also music in the backround really helps. Such as waterfall, rain, rainforest that type of music. If she is still taking naps then decrease her nap time and wake her up earlier it will take a little time for her to get used to it but it will help!" Apr. 13, 2012:
"A show I just recently discovered called "Dead Like Me" has a character named Georgia and every one calls her "George" I think it is an awesome unique name and it fit her personality. I think its cool when names like this are boy and girl names(:" Nov. 19, 2011:
"my best friend is called georgia. i have never liked the name, but recently ive found it is sort of exotic somehow but i cant explain why. however i would not call my kid this unless i was south american or korean or greek or something - dont ask me why but i wouldn't!!" Oct. 6, 2011:
"It's weird, because I like the name Georgia, but I really don't like Georgina or Georgie. Somehow, I think Georgia sounds prettier and more exotic, and slightly more unique." Jun. 15, 2009:
"My name is Georgia and i love it :] My nickname is Gee so i go by that a lot of the time. I think its pretty without being silly or overly girlie. Does bug me a bit because people often think my name is Georgina (and im not so fond of that name!!)
And i LOVE people singing Georgia On My Mind to me!!" Nov. 25, 2008:
"my name is also georgia, i think it is a banging name. :)
i hate it when people call me georgina, its just not right.
my friends call me "Gee", is snazzaayyyy!
:D" Nov. 18, 2008:
"I love my name, not many people have it. My mom named me after where my grandpa was born, and after the late great georgia Okeefe. It exudes confidence and uniqueness, just like me! Mt friends call me Gee Gee. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I dont. Depends on the person. LOL." Sep. 16, 2008:
"My Sisters name is Georgia, and she often gets called Georgie-Porgie. She has, on occassions, spelt it like "Jorja". She likes her name, and it reminds me of someone whos chubby, even though she isn't at all!" Oct. 8, 2007:
"I know some Georgia's and I know that sometimes they have pronunciation problems. They say "Georg-i-a" and I prefer the newer spelling "Jorja". To me, it is quite a masculine name as well." Sep. 21, 2007:
"It's so easy in the States, just call your daughter Florida, Alaska, Dakota, California, Montana, Nevada etc., or Georgia, depending where you live! Great names for boys are Tennessee, Colorado, Ohio, York, Washington or Illinois. In fact I'm gonna call my son Illinois, yeah! Last name Tsukomara as I'm from Japan. His initials will be 'I.T.' which is so cool 'cause I'm an IT programmer!" Mar. 31, 2007:
"We named our daughter (born in August 2006) Georgia Grace. We selected this name because it is sophisticated and distinct sounding today. It also reminds us of lush, southern summers and magnolia flowers. We call our daughter Gigi for short. The Italian version, which we also considered, is spelled Giorgia (Americans often recognize the male form Giorgio, made famous by Giorgio Armani.)" Dec. 11, 2006:
"My name is Georgia, yet it is constantly being mistaken for Georgie, Georgina, Georgini and George. I really like my name and people often comment on it." Nov. 8, 2006:
"It's cool: Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall have a daughter with the name so that settles that." Jan. 13, 2006:
