I know someone named Washington. It's a great first name for him. As a joke, some people call him George for a nickname. Most people call him Washington, though, and it is professional at work. He might use another name in his private life, I don't know. I like this name, but it is not on my short list. I would not like to name someone after George Washington, although the state is very beautiful. I would rather use other names personally, but I like Washington if other people use it. It's handsome, responsible, respected, wearable, and I think it is down-to-earth.
Here are several Washington's: The state, the Washington D.C., and, the most obvious, George Washington.
This name is pretentious, and I despise George Washington, so...bad name choice!

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.
This is ridiculous as a forename!
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.

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

Answer: Who was the first president, Sam?
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.

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