Georgiana Podsnap is a fictional character in Charles Dickens's novel Our Mutual Friend.

She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Podsnap; portrayed as very sheltered, shy, trusting, and naïve and, as such, is taken advantage of by the more manipulative upper-class characters such as Fledgeby and the Lammles who scheme to “befriend” her in order to take her money; courted by Fledgeby through Alfred Lammle, though not with honourable intentions, and nearly finds herself trapped in a marriage with Fledgeby until Sophronia Lammle suffers a change of heart.

In The Secret Museum by Walter Kendrick, the allegory of the young person is personified by Georgiana Podsnap.
