Name for new baby girl

    My husband and I are adopting a little girl and want her to have the initials JJ (for family reasons). We love unisex and/or masculine names and were thinking or Jorga James or Jorgia James. Any thoughts?

    Are you going for the same pronunciation as you would get with Georgia? If so, I wouldn’t spell it Jorga, as that would be likely to be pronounced Jor-guh. I like the name Georgia, but think Jorgia would have lots of misspellings. If you heart is set on a J name, are there any others you would consider? Maybe Jordyn or Jordana?

    I love Georgia, but Jorga/Jorgia both look a bit odd to me.
    I like pp’s suggestion of Jordana. Or maybe Justine? Josephine nn Jo?

    We like Jordyn but think it’s become too common. I love Josephine but because the mn is James, my husband doesn’t want the fn to be a boy name (Joey). Also, our daughters have a close friend that her name is Josephine (nn Joey). We are set on the initials and mn name so trying to find a fn to go with it that starts with “J”. Not as easy as it sounds :(

    Josephine can be nn’d to Josie, Phina/Fina or Posy too, which are all decidedly girly. What about Jasmine as another possibility?

    I might be the only one to commend you on the mn James (I love the name no matter the gender!) Sorry, not a fan of Jorgia though.
    Josephine (nn Josie) is my favorite but you mentioned that not working out..

    Have you considered:
    Jane/Jayne
    Jade/Jada/Jadyn
    Jace/Jacie
    Jocelyn
    June
    Jemma
    Jeanie
    Johanna
    Juliana/Julie/Julia

    I’m really of a fan of James for a girl. It’s such a common, classic boys name, it seems so out of place on a girl. And using names that are really common on the opposite gender can cause so much confusion for other people around her. Better as a middle name than a first name, but I just still do not care for it much.
    What about the much less masculine Jamie/Jaimie/Jaymie? Using a more unisex name for the middle name leaves your first name options and nickname options a lot wider, also.

    I agree that I’m not crazy about the spelling Jorga/Jorgia. It will constantly be misspelled as Georgia, or assume it’s pronounced like the Spanish Jorge. Georgia’s pretty, but changing the spelling will just make it difficult for your daughter her whole life.
    I like the suggestions Josephine, Jocelyn, Jade, Julia, Jessa, and Jordyn/Jordan.

    I am not a fan of using James on a girl at all. However since you are going this route I do think that giving her a definitive ‘girls’ first name is important. So here are some names that I think aren’t too girly, yet still a girls name to go with James.

    Jacey
    Jada
    Jaylee
    Jayla
    Jaylynn
    Jazlynn
    Jenna
    Jenny
    Jodie
    Josie
