I was never teased over that. Born in 1990...maybe it was the era?

This is my name and, though it was a process, I'm now 24 and can say I love it! It's classy, not too popular yet not too out there, sounds nice, and has a nice meaning(s), if I do say so myself.

CocoWhite Says:


It is. But maybe a spelling variation like Geena or Jina will clear up the problem. Regina is another option.

There's a little bit of teasing potential when you add a "va-" to the beginning.
