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!!

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.Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Jane - Mabel - Susannah
Arthur - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter
