  • "My name is Ginny. I have only met one other girl to call herself Ginny, but her real name was Virginia. Mine is just Ginny. I was born in 1981. I love my name. Yes, people have no idea how to spell it or say it. But it's not a common name and I think it sounds pretty." Oct. 16, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "Its a beautiful name! No shortened name has to be a "nickname". Ginny/Ginnie is and can be its own name and my name, Maggie, is a "nickname" but its my name, my REAL birth-given name!" Jul. 16, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "Reminds me of something completely unpretentious. I love my name, even though people do pronounce it wrong - some who've known me for years! Drives me a little buggy (except when it was my own Grandma - that was sweet)." Nov. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I hated having this name growing up because no one ever pronounced it correctly. They always pronounced it like Jenny. At 22 I started going by my given name, Virginia, and everyone loves my name. I do too. If you name your kid Virginia, call her that." Nov. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm Ginny, and sometimes my name also gets spelt wrongly or pronounced wrongly e.g. "Guinea". But don't get me wrong, this name is pretty cute! Well i am kind of thankful to have Ginny as my name, because my Chinese name is really annoying because at least 70% of the teachers and students in school can't even say it right, so yea..." Mar. 18, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "You pronounce it (or spell it,) incorrectly. Jeanie and Ginny are not the same name. My name is Kate, but I pronounce it Diane. How rude of you not to know. There is no point in expecting people to know you pronounce your name completely differently from how you spell it. Be annoyed with your parents who didn't spell your name correctly in the first place." Nov. 27, 2006: Report as inappropriate
