    First thought was Mean Girls.
    That aside, I don't mind it. Gina is a cute nn. Reggie could be a really quirk nn for a tomboy.

    That could be a problem.., but I am in Australia so...
    I'm from Australia too and I don't think any one here would associate Regina with Vagina because they are pronounced differently here so I wouldn't worry about that I think it's a very usable name here!
    Also my first thought was mean girls but it wasn't a negative thought so I don't see that as a problem

    "Regina George is flawless. I hear her hair is insured for $10,000"

    No, I don't mind the Mean Girls association...like a pp said, if anything, it makes the name look wearable today. It sounds like it's said with the gee not the gye most places outside of Canada, so I wouldn't be that worried about teasing....plus loads of cute nickname options if she ever did want to avoid it: Reggie, Gigi, Gina... I like it.

    Since my students quote Mean Girls on a daily basis (seriously, it's like a HS cult classic right now... I even have girls who wear pink on Wednesdays... I kid you not), I did think Mean Girls, but who cares? I don't mind the association at all. Regina is also a main character in the TV show Once Upon a Time that is currently on TV.

    I like the name.
