    I wouldn't use it because it brings attention to a woman's (or child's or teen's) sexual status. Would you name a boy Virginio? (Yes, it's a legitimate name used in Medieval times).

    I ADORE Virginia, but this is the reason it's 100% a GP for me. I just don't think the concept of virginity is a particularly healthy 'value' to name your child for. And lets keep it real it does contain the word virgin.

    I do love love love her though, it reminds me of the photography of Sally Mann which is why my imagery of Virginia is so ethereal.
    Emmett - Cathal - Eoghan - Baez - Wilfred - Rufus - Hugh - Virgil
    Rosemary - Lettice - Maude - Cordelia - Billie - Fenella - Eilidh


    Names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. The smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.

    I never think of virginity when I see Virginia. I see a Southern, refined, floral name. I love it!
