Comments for GEORG:

The name 'George' is actually just a variation of the name 'Georg' which is Teutonic in origin. You'll find that the name is Bavarian (the largest area of Germany known as Bayern to the Germans; its capital is Munich), and there are George's in England and France from the Norman (Viking) invasions of the 1100's. There are several variations of the name Georg or George like Jurigdan and various others which look and sound little like the original 'Georg'. People with the last name 'Georg' or 'George' are most probably German, and the name came from when people in Germany started to form last names for their families and just used first names. Georgios is the Greek form of the name, probably from Greek contact with the Germanic tribes, rather than the name originally being Greek or Armenian which is a misconception. Greeks may also have this name as a Catholic or Eastern Orthodox name (because of St George).

You've got to be kidding. Georg is NOT of Teutonic origin. It must be completely clear to anyone that it was derived from the ancient Greek name "Georgios". Georg surely has been a German name for a long time, but it's not of German origin.

In Germany the name is pronounced gaorg with a very smooth "g" (for Germans) and is only one, open syllable. Sorry above.

Sorry, but the pronunciation in most regions of Germany actually is GAY-org. The one-syllable version is part of a dialect influenced by the French language.
