    So if it's French, it's automatically sophisticated instead of cutesy?

    oui oui aha couldn't resist that, but yeah, it seems that way.

    Personally, I try not to say just "nms" because it's so vague and doesn't help the person much. I always like to hear why people like or dislike certain names, even if I don't agree with their reasons. I've learned not to take it to heart (most of the time). But if I've offended anyone, I'm really sorry and hope you'd tell me so I realize.

    The book Freakonomics has a very interesting chapter about names and the effect they have on our lives. It's like PP said, it's more an indication of socio-economic upbringing than the actual name itself...although studies DO suggest that names have serious impact with potential employers. So much so, in fact, that there are entire groups of people dedicated to removing names from resumes and job applications, to make it more fair to the Sparkel Qweenies of the world.


    http://freakonomics.com/tag/baby-names/ - there's a podcast, etc. on the subject.

    Regardless, the examples you gave don't really belong in this category! They're cute - but they certainly won't hinder her life any more than Charlotte will help hers. Those comments are just ridiculous!!

    This article was from an Australian magazine and there's a very low (like, extremely low) Hispanic community in Australia. Any child named Jorja is almost definitely not of Spanish descent, nor are her parents choosing the name because of its Spanish roots. It's simply creative spelling.
