The name Georgia is a girl's name of English origin meaning "farmer". Georgia is ranked #227 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Vintage Baby Names for Girls and discussed in our forums with posts like "Baby a Day".
From the experts:
Georgia is so rich, lush and luscious, it's almost irresistible. Georgia's now a rising star among the feminizations of George, helped by associations with the southern state (named for British King Geogre II) and painter Georgia O'Keeffe, with the Ray Charles song "Georgia On My Mind" or maybe "Sweet Georgia Brown" playing in the background.
This peach of a name is currently enjoying widespread international popularity: it was recently as high as Number 7 in Greece, was 21 in New Zealand, 29 in Australia, and in the Top 70 in England and Wales, Canada, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Georgia has been chosen for their daughters by Harry Connick, Jr., Hope Davis, Amy Ryan, Zac Brown, Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane, and Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy.
British jazz singer Georgia Brown was born Lillian Klot.
There is also the phonetic spelling Jorja--but we'd recommend sticking with the original.
