The English name George is ultimately of Greek origin.

It is from Old French, derived from the Latin name Georgius, which in turn derived from the Greek name Georgios.

The Greek name Georgios is derived from the Greek elements gen (γη) meaning "earth" and ergon (εργον) meaning "work".

The name George was the name of several early saints, including one who in the 14th century, became regarded as the patron Saint of England.

Although the name was not used much in the Middle Ages, it rose in popularity after the ascession of the first king of England by that name in 1714, and has remained a popular English boys name since that time.

George was the given name of many kings, as well as the first president of the United States.
