I don't know if I like female names that obviously take a male name and slap a feminine ending on. I like fully feminine names.
But even so, this name has a charm to it. I could definitely use this for a pet, but probably never a child.

This is my daughter's name. We call her "Jet" for short. Other great nicknames are "Gigi" or "Geo". I love this name!

Agreed. Name Info should be name info, not someone's opinion and personal taste.

Everyone but me. I'd love to gopto France though one day. Now about the name. It's meh to me. Not horrible but tends to blend in with a lot of others IMO. I like unique names.

I don't live in France, though I would like to visit more. I love it and much prefer it to the overused but still lovely Georgia or the rising but overly vowelly Georgiana. I think of Regency writer Georgette Heyer, the fabric georgette (which I envision as muslin, but who knows), and my beloved late Nana's beloved cat, Georgette.
