Gina is my name and i've never met another gina in my life! i used to hate it when i was little but i learned to love it! my friend knows so many ginas and she'says all the ginas she knows are wonderful! definitly name your daughter this!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Gina and I am a 40 year old! I have always loved my name because no one else was named Gina. The only down fall for me was that everyone thinks I am Italian and I am Spanish.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

People dont say it correctly ever'since that'stupid fI'm 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN came out❤️ Thanks a lot HOLLYWOOD!!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

its pronounced (gee-nah) not (gi-nah) so therefore it wouldn't make sense to call someone with this name VA gee-nah!

01/06/2024 07:26:44

My name's Gina, and I'must admit, when I was younger (though I'm still young, 15 ;-) I didn't really like it. A few people would spell it wrong. My babysitter used to spell it Gena. But now I sort of enjoy it.. It's unique :-D

01/01/2024 18:24:46

it my name and i love it i is a lillle short but it is diffrent

12/26/2023 04:53:18

I used to dislike it, but now I like my name! Avoid naming your child if You're German/live in Germany. A lot of Germans have a tendency to pronounce the 'G' part like 'Tsh' (think 'che'se'), not like the'soft J. It always annoyed me a bit.

12/23/2023 18:59:32

gina ther'sa 10/4/70 unless your a wap, don't name your daughters this name! you look out of place

12/01/2023 06:31:50

HI'my name is Geena. Yes thats how i spell it. I like this name b\c idk that many people with it... its unique and i just love the way It'sounds.

11/23/2023 21:36:34

I am still young, and I don't really care for my name Gina. My guy friends always tease me by calling me va-geee-na. Yup, so It'still hasn't grown on me yet. I guess it will due to the fact that all these other gina's love It'so much. But my middle name is Isabella, and I love that name'so much more! My friends call me Gina, but also call me Isa, bella, or Isabella. I like how they support me in the fact that i like this name more, but I have to agree that this name is unique, because I so far have not met an other Gina's.

10/27/2023 20:06:54

My name is Gina. Right now I'm in middle school... I hated my name for a really long time because of that, but now It's starting to grow on me. I'm just really hope people will stop making those jokes. It's extremely embarrassing and annoying. i've only met one other Gina. I love that It's unique, but when I was younger I hated the fact that my name wasn't Ashley or Emily or something else common. Sometimes I wish my name was Gianna or Gia. I really love those and I think they're beautiful names. So if anyone is thinking about naming there daughter Gina, I think you should go with Gia or Gianna. Much prettier and she won't get teased.

10/07/2023 21:39:50

My name's Gina. It doesn't seem to be a very common name. The correct way to say my name is Gee-nuh(Gee, like the "j" sound in "just", not the "g" sound in "gust"), at least in the English I speak. I think I have met 1 other person with my name, not counting any Re-Gina's. I was givin the name Gina because it was different.

10/06/2023 10:59:06

My name is Gina Marie and I am 53, I was named after the Italian actress Gina Lollobridgida. I don't hate my name, but I don't really care for it. I never was made fun of because of it, but people would not not pronounce it right either. I wonder why its not a very popular name.

09/26/2023 23:48:32

My best friend is Gina; It's such a great name! It's so cool and pretty. It'sums up a beautiful glamour puss like Gina Lollobrigida. Rock on Gina's!

09/20/2023 10:17:04

It is my name and I was the only one with it in school for many years. Most people misspell it but have gotten better in recent years pronouncing it right. Looking at your chart, I was named Gina when it was most popular. Suprised that I do not know more Gina's. The girsl I do know are great people. Very fun loving and smart. That is way I give it a thumbs up. I have yet to meet anyone with the name that I did not like.

09/18/2023 00:58:34

My sister is a Gina, named after the french actress Gina Lollabridgida.

09/14/2023 01:45:22

My name is Gina and it is a wonderful name and I love it!! No really spells my name wrong. people call me Gina with the I in it I don't meet a lot of people that have the name Gina.i love my name and your daughter would too if this was her name it is very pretty name

09/10/2023 07:14:18

HI'my name is Gina, to be honest i hate my name because well i was called mean nicknames as a kid and teens but now as an adult I don't mind it much.

09/10/2023 01:04:00

I really do not like my name...But everyone with this name loves should name is spelled grandmother named me after the actress gina lollabridgida too..My name to me is not feminine at all..It'sounds real butchy..I have changed the'spelling of my name to work my name is visible on the computer to everyone..I am a policeofficer'so dispatche's, officers..ect see my name everyday that I I changed it. It may or may not work but thats not the only reason why im changing I really like the'spelling..I love that everyone who posted loves their name. makes me feel better about my name

08/31/2023 05:39:42

I like the fact that nobody can spell it correct. It'sounds like "Jeena" and it confusses the mind and makes you think first.

08/29/2023 10:45:14

My name is Gena. I love my name and always have. I was never teased by my name either. My nickname was Jean'Nate (like the perfume). Some of my friends use to call me called me Genie (when I was a teen) or would sing the theme song from "I Dream of Jeannie." My best friend calls me Gena Bean! LOL People are always spelling my name wrong, which is annoying so I'make sure I spell it for them. I am 50 and I have the most unique name! I LOVE it!

08/20/2023 18:40:50

I like my name but someone thought it was clever to start calling me Gy-na, It's so annoying.

08/14/2023 18:58:08

I do like the fact that my name is not very common. Ever'since 40 Year old Virgin came out I get the "gyna" comments. Its a terrible first impression. People are trying to be funny but I'm not laughing and will never forget that they said it. I'm trying to go by "Jean" or "Genie" in the future because there is no escaping the joke.

08/06/2023 09:56:56

My name is Regina, and ive been made fun of constantly. i really wish that my mom wouldve named me something else.

07/27/2023 08:22:20

sometimes when I'meet people they say "damn gina!" to quote tv show Martin.

07/25/2023 09:21:00

It's so annoying to get teased for this name. It's not even'the child's fault. I hate my name. The name itself Isn't to bad. It's kinda unique. However, the'spelling is terrible. The name is better if it is spelled Gena, Jina, Geena, or Jeena in my opinion.

07/19/2023 17:16:46

everyone spells it wrong, It's pronounced "Geena" and i've heard of one other person in my school who has it

06/15/2023 23:19:18

Growing up as a Gina I would constantly get asked what it was short for. Now that It's more popular I don't get that as much. But for some reason most people want to spell it with a "J"

06/14/2023 07:56:26

I named my daughter "Gina" because I never met a girl named Gina that wasn't beautiful. She loves it because she has never met anyone else at school that has her name.

06/13/2023 19:18:12

My names Gina. It's annoying but they have all practically been in love with me or liked me at some point so I guess they're just joking around! I think It's nice because It's unique and everyone likes girls that are a little different :)

06/08/2023 11:45:20

I love my name. Gina is not rare, but not common. I just wish I knew why the name Gina was so popular in 1979.

06/06/2023 10:05:18

My real name is 'Regina' but everyone calls me Gina. It even appears on my credit card *lol*. I love my name - Gina, that is!

05/24/2023 22:01:40

My Name is Gina and b/c of the'show "Martin" I get a lot of Damnnnnnnnnn GINA! It's funny and makes me smile. I have been asked a few times if it is short for Regina, NO! I was born 1994!

05/23/2023 03:42:28

they call me rouldolph but i would lilke to be called myspace but my dumb parents dont have a clues about whats cool im also a stripper and my code name is hector

05/21/2023 03:12:58

My "real" name is Regina but since I was a teenager I always insisted that people call me Gina because I like this shortened version so much better. Most people (apart from family members, obviously) don't even realise It's not my proper first name. I love it. Definitely both thumbs up!

05/15/2023 03:12:38

Hi, I am a Gina Marie, born in 1989. I have always liked my name. My parents couldn't think of a girl's name'so they looked in the TV Guide and found Gina as in the actress Gina Lollabridgida. I think it is great to know the'story of how I came to be with that name. I am not Italian. And I have only met 5-7 Gina's in my life, most of them actually having the name Regina.

04/18/2023 10:31:58

My name is Gina and I love it. =)It's not used very often which makes it even more special to me. :D Gina is such a pretty and wonderful name, you should totally name your daughter Gina, i bet she would love it!

04/11/2023 09:32:48

Yes I know, It's spelled the'same but if I also wanted to point out the obvious, I'd point out your lack of respect and maturity. Overall, I think my name is great! I guess they can't help it because we are still in middle school... By the way, i've noticed a lot of people named Gina Marie. It's kind of unsettling but my middle name is Marie, hmm.

04/05/2023 00:25:50

My name is Gina Allegra, very Italian. :) I love the name Gina, and even had it legally changed because I hated my original name. Combined with my husband's last name, I love it! Gina has always fitted me.

03/26/2023 05:19:10

my name is Gina and almost everybody has either'spelt it "Gena" of pronounced it "Gy-na" haha!! my own GRANDMA spelt it wrong!! but i guess It's an unique name, and i like it!

03/10/2023 14:01:24

My name is Gina and I love it! People often'try to spell it with variations of "Jean", or ask if It's short for "Regina" (mostly by the older generation), but I don't mind. i've met very few people with the'same name and love that It's fairly unique.

03/08/2023 22:56:10

My name is Gina, named after Princess Gina Von Amberg from Days of our lives, and I love how my name is kind of unique. I have not met any people with the'same name as me, 1-3 girls. And i've always thought it was a name for someone older, seeing as I'm 16. And i've sometimes been asked if it was short for Regina, when my full given name is Gina.

03/08/2023 17:38:46

I named my daughter Jeanna Rae. Everyone always told me they thought it was a very pretty name. Especially the way I spelled it. Although, no one could ever'seem to pronounce it correctly, which for the life of me I could never understand. She will be 33 years old this August, 2019, and people still can't pronounce it. There is one other person that I know of with the name Jeanna spelled this way. But, I have never known anyone named "G i n a", with this spelling.

03/05/2023 10:17:46

Gina is my name & I love it!!! NEVER ever have been called any gynecological nicknames as I was born in 1976 & life wasn't as crude growing up as it is now. BTW, i've met more Gina's over the past 5 years and every one is beautiful!

02/24/2023 10:52:32

I LOVE the name Gina - except for the'spelling. My mothe's name was Dena & fathe's name Jerry - so i named my daughter "Jeina" - because my name'starts with a J also - i wanted a J. People often pronounce it "Jenna" tho, i just correct them :)

02/07/2023 07:08:14

My name is Gina and i like being unique and all, It's a very pretty name, but some guys in my class tease me by calling me slang for a woman's private part. i know i will like it much more when i am older because people won't be so I'mature.

02/01/2023 02:43:24

My name is Gina Marie and I'm currently in high school, i've never met another person named Gina (or regina). I hate all the I'mature jokes that I'm sure everyone with this name has experienced, however, I also was called A nig-which is Gina idea why this would be funny considering I'm quite white...also people always want to pronounce it as Je-nuh for some reason.

01/23/2023 08:00:18

My name is Gina and I love my name. I'm Italian and I love the fact that I have an Italian name. It means "Queen," "Pure," or "Virgin" in Latin.

01/16/2023 22:00:26

I have always liked my name Gina Lynn. It's unique and I enjoy that!

01/09/2023 13:40:26

This is my name, It's ok, but I ALWAYS have to corect it.

11/03/2022 08:48:42

My name is Gina. I wanted something more common & less 'grown-up' as a child since my friends had cute little names in the 80s, but I like it now. It is easy to remember, everyone knows the name although there are not a lot of us. As one other person mentioned, people often'try to spell it with a J for some reason.

10/27/2022 15:10:22

My name is Gina Rachele & I love my name! People do sometimes call me Genie or spell it with a J, but other then'that i've always been complimented on my name. I have met a few other Gina's but I was the only one in school growing up.

10/19/2022 20:33:12

This is my name. I am also a Hannah Elizabeth, but I don't use both. I hate P\ people call me Hannah Banana or Hannah Montana. Ug it was one of the MOST popular names when I was born. i've know over 14 different Hannah's and even met two with my middle name as well and one of them even had the'same last initial...creepy huh❤️

10/16/2022 00:16:20

My name is Gina and I am 26 years old. I have always loved my name. There were few Gina's in my school classes growing up, so I was the only one. It is a great name!

07/28/2022 20:59:24

I didnt like it much when i was younger, however now at age 18 its grown apart of me, i really enjoy it now.

07/18/2022 02:57:36

My name is Gina and I love it. It's not common, but not weird either.

07/07/2022 18:04:48

Its always spelled and pronounced wrong. You thing if they can say "Regina" then'they could say "Gina"..... Its the'same thing!!

06/14/2022 14:40:30

I'm called Gina and love it. I think It'sounds great and It's relatively uncommon. So far my name hasn't be spelled, or pronounced, wrong by anyone at all.

04/09/2022 20:18:00

I love having the name Gina..It's such a pretty name and It's popularity is perfect. It's not as popular as the name "ashley" so you stand out more..and It's not so unpopular that there is no one else with it. It's PERFECT...I'm 17 and trust me your daughter would love this name too!!

04/05/2022 07:24:54

I am very suprised by my name's apparent decline in popularity over the years. It would seem to me the name was never that popular in the first place. As a kid, I was usually the only Gina. At the most, one of two. Now, as a teacher, I think I see the'same number of Ginas in school.

03/25/2022 02:24:18

My name is Gina. Gina Marie... Love it! Go for it!

07/23/2021 01:42:00

My name is also Gina Marie. It's unique, italian, and I think It's a pretty name. I'd say the only negative part of this name is the I'mature teenage guys nicknames for you, jy-nah, and all sorts of names like that.
