If Geoffrey is British and a tad stuffy, Jeffrey is his fun, full-of-life Americanized counterpart. The name landed on the baby-name charts in the 1930s and was a major parent pleaser in the mid-20th century. It fell from the top of the charts around the turn of the century but still maintains a presence to this day. With two hot actors bearing the name, Jeffrey Nordling of “Big Little Lies” and Jeffrey Dean Morgan of “Supernatural,” Jeffrey may catch on fire again in the near future.
