"Nowhere near as hideous as the female name Mildred, yet this isn't as strongly connected to the 1970s UK television sitcom 'George and Mildred' as Mildred is, partly because despite the name George being generally thought of as a "grandad" name like Frank or Bill, there have been some well-known bearers of this name of recent times such as George Clooney, George Michael, the late George Harrison (of The Beatles - he was called "the quiet Beatle"), and the late George Best. There is also the current U.S. president George W. Bush and his father, George Herbert Walker Bush, who was U.S. president from 1989 to 1993. Let's not forget the first U.S. president George Washington from the late 18th century as well." May. 5, 2008:
