George Washington Carver was a great inventor.

This is also a state (an ugly one in my opinion) in the USA.

How is Washington an ugly state?

I wouldn't use it since I live in Washington and also many Washingtonians pronounce it WasRhington, not the most attractive pronunciation. I never heard of it being used as a name.

What about Washington Irving? Also, the capitol of the United States of America is Washington, D.C. (named after George Washington).

Even though this is more of a last name, I like it right now and may give a future son this name as a middle name.

George Washington was the first president of the United States of America.

The name sounds both tacky and pretentious, which is an uncommon and interesting combination. Washington DC comes to mind immediately, and the name is very surname-y anyway.

What is the question to which "Washington Irving" is the answer?

Answer: Who was the first president, Sam?

This name is way too surname-y and makes me think of the state or Washington DC.

George Washington died in 1799, not 1797. That's the year he left the presidency. [noted -ed]

Washington Allston (1779-1843) was an American painter and writer.

It would be pretty hard to use this, since it's a state, and also the capital of my country. Personally, I think George would be a little better if you wanted to honor the father of our country.

This is ridiculous as a forename!

If you wish to honor George Washington, you can name your child George, Christopher, or Jackson. The reason I say this is because the person who plays George Washington in the musical Hamilton is named Christopher Jackson.
