Babies Named After George Michael?

George Michael - FaithMusician George Michael (born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou) released his first solo album in late 1987.

Four of the singles from Faith reached the #1 spot on the Billboard charts in 1988 — “Faith” in January, “Father Figure” in February, “One More Try” in May, and “Monkey” in August.

In 1989, Faith won a Grammy for Album of the Year. “Father Figure” was also nominated a Grammy, but lost to Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”

Also in 1989, we see the compound name Georgemichael sneak onto the U.S. baby name charts for the very first time:

  • 1992: unlisted
  • 1991: 6 baby boys named Georgemichael
  • 1990: unlisted
  • 1989: 6 baby boys named Georgemichael [debut]
  • 1988: unlisted

The SSA omits spaces and hyphens, so no doubt some of these Georgemichaels were actually named “George Michael” or “George-Michael.”

U.S. parents gave name one more try in 1997, when it briefly popped back onto the charts, but it hasn’t appeared in the data since then.

The sitcom Arrested Development (2003-2006) featured a character called George Michael, but the character wasn’t able to revive the name. (A character named Maeby, however, did manage to influence the charts…)


Double Names – Thomas Thomas, Lars Larsen, Gerald FitzGerald

I find it interesting that some people are given forenames that exactly match their surnames. A few historically significant examples include:

There are also many forename/surname sets out there that come close to matching, such as:

Have you ever met someone whose first name and last name were identical (or nearly so)? Do you like these sorts of names?

Update – I just found out about Thomas McKean Thompson McKennan, 1794-1852, who served as U.S. Secretary of the Interior for a few weeks in 1850. This is as close to a double double as I’ve ever seen.
