    My preference would be with Georgia. Georgina is a little more of a mouthful to say and I guess I'm more of a fan of shorter sounding names. Plus I have a very good friend called Georgia. Her nn is Gigi Girl. I totally disagree with the concept from another comment that these names are associated with lower-socioeconomic class. They are classic, lovely names. And to be honest, even they were, that wouldn't bother me if I liked the name.

    I much prefer Georgina to Georgiana, because it has one simple but nice pronunciation to it but still a traditional history of use. I know three Georginas, two go by Gina and one by Georgie, and I don't associate it with a lower socioeconomic class at all.

    This is definitely false, and based on one person's experience.

    My favorite is Georgiana. I'm confused by the multiple pronunciations you listed. Ive never heard George-ee-AY-nah or George-ee-AR-nah? Not sure where the R comes from? I say George-ee-AH-nah, and am sure some would say George--ee--ANN-ah.
    Some current considerations:

    Cora Madeleine | Etta Rosalie | Hazel Miranda | Margot Eliza | Sylvie Coraline | Vivienne Esme
    Archer Daniel | Callum Sawyer | Emmett Sebastian | Ezra Byrne | Leo Vincent | Rhys Anderson

    I grew up with a Georgianna, and she definitely did NOT belong to a "lower socio-economic class." (What a mouthful!) She was from a prominent Greek family, went to an exclusive private school and graduated from Yale with honors. And as if that weren't enough: she's gorgeous. Her nickname growing up was Georgie, and it was a pretty perfect name - cute on a kid, cool on an adult.
