Given Name for Girls?[edit]

Has anyone actually come accross "George" as a girls' name? I've only seen/heard it as a boys' name. Anna 13:04, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Same as above- modeled after it, in fact. In deciding whether to roll this back, I saw that they were referring to the Victoria entry as a precedent. If we decide we don't want these, we need to get rid of both as soon as possible to keep this from propagating out into dozens of entries. Chuck Entz (talk) 03:25, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Delete the specific "A monarch named King George" sense. I could, but unless it becomes our practice, expressed by keeping this sense, I will refrain and not, cite at least two dozen famous Georges. - -sche (discuss) 04:05, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
On further reflection, I think I see what they were getting at: the name assumed on taking the throne or otherwise assuming a title isn't necessarily the given name, but rather something chosen. I believe the above-mentioned King George went by Albert before assuming the throne (Bertie for short). Even so, I still think it's just a special type of given name.

Yeah, that's still a given name—it's a name you've given yourself. - -sche (discuss) 05:53, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Keep as above. And add all the regnal names (George I etc). SemperBlotto (talk) 08:00, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Delete, could probably be cited to refer to George Clooney but I don't want a sense for that. In the same way that if someone says to me 'Martin' I implicitly know they are referring to me. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:45, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
w:King George has a couple dozen which are probably all attestable, and that's just George. There's nothing to stop us having such senses for Mojmir, for instance ([1]], [2], [3], [4]), or Orhan ([5], [6], [7], [8]). Chuck Entz (talk) 20:50, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
Delete. There are too many kings, and the fact that monarchs of Europe use a given name plus a Roman numeral ought to be common knowledge. If it's not, it can be explained in ====Usage notes====, as in Benedict. Translations can be explained in non-English entries like Yrjö. (As a child I was quite impressed that six Finns has managed to become kings of England.) --Makaokalani (talk) 15:36, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
