Actually, Đurađ is almost exclusively Serbian (although Đorđe/Djordje is a far more common Serbian form, I believe). ĐURO is the Croatian form of George. [noted -ed]

Correction: since Đurađ appears not to be too common (although not vanishingly rare either) and is seen as an older version (it's certainly old fashioned) once widely used in both Serbia and Croatia (as seen in many place names and surnames), maybe the entry could mention that - like it being "archaic" or "rare", at least as a Croatian name?
In Croatia, as I already said, the names Đuro and Juraj are prevalent (Đuro is itself originally a short form of Đurađ). [noted -ed]

Đurađ Jakšić is a Serbian history teacher and politician. He ran for mayor of Novi Sad in the 2012 mayoral elections. Jakšić is the Serbian Radical Party president of the city council of Novi Sad.

In December 2012, he arose controversy by forming a petition requesting a street in Novi Sad be named after Slobodan Milošević. He previously arose controversy in March 2007 when he suggested that Veljko Milanković and Mladen Bratić get streets named after them in Novi Sad.
