The city is named after Saint George, the patron saint of England. The name "Saint-Georges" was chosen by its founder, Jacques Cartier. He had been shipwrecked on the coast of an island that he called "Saint-George's Land", now known as Bermuda. It is also possible that he named it in honour of his patron saint St George or because this was where English sailors landed when they came to Canada for fishing and trading with First Nations people (see History of Newfoundland and Labrador).
