Gender: Female Origin of Gigi: French diminutive

The name Gigi is a girl's name of French origin. Gigi and is often added to lists like Bad Girl Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Rate the Previous Signature!".

From the experts:

Like high-kicking amies Coco and Fifi, Gigi has a lot of Gallic spunk but lacks substance. Was chosen for her daughter by designer Cynthia Rowley. While some parents might fashionably use Gigi on its own, we'd recommend lengthening it on the birth certificate to something like Georgiana or Gabrielle.

I think it would be cute for Giovanna!

Gigi is generally short for Gilberte. Gilberte is a nice strong name, the t is pronounced because it is followed by a vowel.
