A favorite name among Hispanic-American parents, Jorge (pronounced HORE-hey) was taken from the English name George (which is derived from the Greek word "georgos," meaning “farmer”). Credit for the name becoming popular among Spanish and Portuguese communities goes to the much-admired English monarchs named George who ruled from the 18th century on. The name received new appreciation when Prince William and Kate Middleton named their first-born son George in 2013.
