This is not really a famous bearer of the name, but the Scottish band Glasvegas have a song named "Geraldine". It's a beautiful ode to all the hardworking social workers in the world.
The chorus goes like this:
I will turn, I will turn your tide
Do all that I can to heal you inside
I will be the angel on your shoulder
My name is Geraldine, I'm your social worker

- I think it's beautiful.
