Definitions for "Ginny"
Ginny is often used as a short form of Virginia or Ginevra, and is somewhat less prone to cruel nicknames. This form of the name is gaining popularity after its use as the name of the youngest Weasley child in the Harry Potter books, though J. K. Rowling revealed Ginny Weasley's full name is Ginevra, not Virginia, as widely assumed, on her website.
