George Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine, USAGE: English, Romanian, PRONOUNCED: JAWRJ (English). From the Greek name Georgios which was derived from the Greek word georgos meaning “farmer, earth-worker”, itself derived from the elements ge “earth” and ergon “work”. Saint George was a 3rd-century Roman soldier from Palestine who was martyred during the persecutions of emperor Diocletian. Later legends describe his defeat of a dragon, with which he was often depicted in medieval art. Initially, Saint George was primarily revered by Eastern Christians, but returning crusaders brought stories of him to Western Europe and he became the patron of England, Portugal, Catalonia, and Aragon. The name was rarely used in England until the German-born George I came to the British throne in the 18th century. Five subsequent British kings have borne the name. Other famous bearers include two kings of Greece, the composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759), the first president of the United States, George Washington (1732-1797), and the Pacific explorer George Vancouver (1757-1798). This was also the pen name of authors George Eliot (1819-1880) and George Orwell (1903-1950), real names Mary Anne Evans and Eric Arthur Blair respectively.
As demonstrated by Prince William and Kate Middleton naming their firstborn son, George, it’s quite the illustrious name. In medieval legend, Saint George (the knight who became the patron saint of England) slayed a fire-breathing dragon. The name has also been borne by numerous heads of state in England, Greece, and the United States, not to mention perennial bachelor and former Sexiest Man Alive George Clooney. And most importantly who could forget that mischievous little monkey Curious George? But, hey, no pressure, kid. Famous Georges: George H.W. Bush – former US President, George W. Bush – former US President, George Clooney – actor, George Washington – former US President.
