  1. George William is named after his daddy’s side of the family (daddy is the 5th George) and William is my father’s name as well as my great grandfather.

  2. George was on the top of both our lists It’s a family name. We call him Georgie a lot. When I got pregnant with George, it was pretty unexpected. George is a classic honeymoon baby, we were planning to wait a couple of years, but we were excited nevertheless. My husband mother really wanted me to name him, Charles, a family name on my husband’s side, I really didn’t like the name, and George Charles is too many references to the royal family on top of that my sister had an abusive boyfriend named Charles who is the Name-that-should-not-be-spoken in my parent’s house. So my husband and I wanted a name similar to Charles to please her. So we chose Carl, I thought it was nice, George Carl, I thought it was sweet with Nora, (The name I picked out if we had a girl and still on the top of both of our lists.) and now five years later, I’m coming back and pregnant looking for a middle name for my second child, Nora. We have done great since George was born, I’m a full stay-at-home Mom. My husband’s career has taken off and we are really happy and ready to bring another human being into this world.

  3. He has two older brothers, so we were running out of good names that we both liked. I was scrolling through baby name lists when I came across George I had never considered it before. I asked my husband and he was like “I like that, that was my Dad’s middle name!” Our oldest son is Theodore after his Grandpa, so I thought it was a great fit. We chose Henry as a middle name because my Husband has french roots and it was important to him. We thought about spelling it with an I, Henri but we thought it would be a bit much.

  4. I’m pregnant at the minute. We are so so excited, my partner’s name is George his father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all called George too. So to us it was a no-brainer didn’t need a second thought. I love the name and it’s not very commonly used anymore. ?

    • It’s not very common but is still a classic and I think is a good name for all phases of life. We named our son George after my grandfather, so I am biased!

  5. He’s named after his amazing Great Papa. My girls call him Baby Georgie, which I think is the cutest thing ever!

  6. Posey picked George because of Peppa Pig’s little brother! And our friend suggested Callaway and we loved it!

  7. It’s a family name and he will actually be the third. There wasn’t a ton of thought behind this choice since my husband is a JR but it fits him perfectly and we now have two children with classic names!

  8. I chose the name George because it is his father’s name. My baby is George IV. Continuing the family name is important to my husband and I never even gave it a second thought when we talked about it. It’s an older name and not as common so I do love it.

  9. I named my 9yr old son George due to my great grandma name was Georgia so i short it and put his name George after her.

  10. George is a family name which was motivation to use it. And we also really like more traditional names and gender specific names. One thing I have loved is that everyone knows how to spell it! When I first took him to his pediatrician, the receptionist asked, “Is his name spelled the way it sounds?” and I said “YES!” One of the biggest reasons we like the name George is the simplicity of knowing he’s a boy, how to spell it and how to say it!

  11. It’s my husband’s name and his father and grandfather. Plus we both love it! It’s just confusing with so many of them around!
