"We are going to be naming our son Gavin Geoffrey. Jeffery is his grandfather's middle name but we wanted to keep with the triple G's. My husband's name is Guy Greggory and our first son's is Griffin Garrison.
I think that it is becoming a little more popular with the G since Geoffrey the Giraffe from Toys R Us." Jun. 22, 2008:

"This is my name. Nobody ever mispronounces it in UK where I live, but they often misspell it - particularly the shortened form: Geof, Geoff, Jeff. (I use Geoff). I think this was the normal spelling in UK until the overwhelming influence of US TV programmes here." Dec. 18, 2018:
"It's my name.... I hear, Godfrey, Gregory, G-off-Free, sigh.....read people read......correcting them and they still want to tell you how to spell or pronounce your own name...." Mar. 21, 2018:
"We named our son Geoffrey. I love the old world spelling. I have to tell people how to spell it all the time because they'll start to write it with a "J" but I'm use to it because we have to spell our daughter's name for people too." Dec. 19, 2008:
"I do appreciate the original Old World spelling of Geoffrey. This spelling goes back to Middle Ages...fascinating. However, some people pronounce it "Goof-rey" which is so annoying. It was annoying enough that I just started spelling it Jeffrey like every other 20th-century Jeff." Mar. 30, 2008:
"People often mistake my name as "Godfrey" despite the lack of the letter 'd' in my name. When ever I give someone my name for them to write down, I have to spell it quickly before they write "Jeffrey", but I never say it fast enough. They always write "Jeffrey." The origin of the name is old German." Jun. 5, 2006:
