    I don't know if Imogen will ever reach the popularity of Amelia here in the U.S., short of getting a boost from a popular character from film or TV or a book, but it's such a lovely name, and I wouldn't mind if it grew a bit in popularity.

    I can't see it getting really popular in the U.S. Unlike Amelia, who's been common for centuries and had American namesakes like Earhart, Imogen has kept quiet on our side of the pond.

    I think Imogen is an acquired taste for North American parents so I don't think it will become "trendy" anytime soon unless...(1) a major celebrity chooses it for a daughter and puts it on the radar or (2) the name is featured in a book/film/TV and catches on.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    The person could go by Genny so yes, it does have a nickname option. I think it is very trendy and I see it a lot in Baby-Name forums and I think someday it'll even be in the top 50, or if it keeps getting as trendy as Emmeline and Briar are, I think it might just make the top 10!

    Here in Oz it's popular.

    I love it regardless. I am a migrant to Oz though so the new hasn't really worn off for me.

    Don't be offended, OP, I apologize in advance, but how does it sound in the NZ accent? The vowels swapping thing makes me uncertain how feminine/cute it sounds? Can you still get Immy and Genny out of it? I do not like Jennifer but I do like Gen/Genny.

    I don't think its still climbing in Oz - I believe its dropped recently. Amelia is crazily popular, as is Ruby. I don't understand the affection for Amelia at all, in fact I hate it, but everyone else seems to love it.
