Gender: Female Origin of Gigi: French diminutive

Gigi Origin and Meaning

The name Gigi is a girl's name of French origin.

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!

Lynn Chisholm Says:


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