I have a 20 year old George - he was born overseas and was always the only George in whatever school he was in (big schools too). When we recently returned to the UK there were 5 George's in his class. Admittedly one was actually a female Georgia but she went by the name George.
George is very popular.

My George is the only George in his class, but we live in a very small city. Love the name sooo much but am a little sad it will now probably be the most populary boys name for the next couple of years!

I saw on one website that Royal baby names actually lower the popularity of that name. So, if that trend continues, George wont be a popular name

OP, I feel your pain - my DS is also George Alexander (age nearly 5) and I love it. I know it's not an unusual name but it's not that common either (or wasn't) and my George is also the only one in his class and social circle. Adding the Alexander in too really got my goat! sad

I thought they would have Alexander as the first name, but maybe they will call him something completely different in private, you never know...

I don't get all the concern. There are loads of Kates and Williams everywhere but I don't think of the Cambridges. confused

It's just a name, like every other George, ever.

My DS1 is Alexander but he is 43 now so I cannot possibly be accused of copying can I?.the Royal parents were not even a twinkle in their fathers' eyes when he was born.

Fancy you having a George Alexander too! My last boy is Alexander, born on my dad's birthday. Dad was called George, so son is Alexander George. Dad George died earlier this year and here we have a new George, so out with the old and in with the new is OK with me as it is a lovely reminder!

My four month old is a George too. I'm going to get fed up saying 'actually, he was born first'. So we're calling him George I ;)

Snap, my ds is also George Alexander.
