- Comments and insights on the name Georgiana: | Edit
The most common pronunciation in the US is jor-jee-AHN-uh.
In the American South we pronounce it jor-JAN-uh (George-Anna). A few say jor-jee-AHN-uh.
Georgiana Cavendish pronounced it jor-JAY-nuh, which is the traditional British pronunciation.
I'm surprised this is not more popular in the USA! A very pretty name, and not too far off in style from the very popular Isabella, Victoria, etc. Yet since 2000 it has not even ranked in the top 1000 names (according to the Social Security rankings) for girls!!
