The term itself, according to Brockett, originated from all the North East coal mines. The earliest known recorded use of the term found by an Oxford English Dictionary word hunt occurred as recently as Academic journals refer to the Geordie dialect as "Tyneside English".
The Jacobites declared that the natives of Newcastle were staunch supporters of the Hanoverian kingsin particular of George I during the rebellion. This contrasted with rural Northumberlandwhich largely supported the Jacobite cause.
Another explanation for the name is that local miners in the northeast of England used Geordie safety lampsdesigned by George Stephensonknown locally as "Geordie the engine-wright",  in  rather than the competing Davy lampsdesigned by Humphry Davyused in other mining communities.
Using the chronological order of two John Trotter Brockett books, Geordie was given to North East pitmen; later he acknowledges that the pitmen also christened their Stephenson lamp Geordie.
Moreover, Roman bureaucrat and historian Jordanes bore this name; and consequently was believed to be a Romanised German author of Gothic background. Further supporting this hypotheses is that the Geordie dialect of English still retains the accent as well as many ancient words of Old English and Norse origin; which are usually not found in the other spoken regional dialects of Modern English.
It occurs in the titles of two songs by songwriter Joe Wilson — Citing such examples as the song "Geordy Black", written by Rowland Harrison of Gateshead, she contends that, as a consequence of popular culture, the miner and the keelman had become icons of the region in the 19th century, and "Geordie" was a label that "affectionately and proudly reflected this," replacing the earlier ballad emblem, the figure of Bob Crankie.

In Graham's many years of research, the earliest record he found of the term's use was in by local comedian Billy Purvis.
Purvis had set up a booth at the Newcastle Races on the Town Moor. In an angry tirade against a rival showman, who had hired a young pitman called Tom Johnson to dress as a clownBilly cried out to the clown: Ah man, wee but a feul wad hae sold off his furnitor and left his wife.

You may do for the city, but never for the west end of our town! Origin not known; the term has been in use more than a century. Bad-weather Geordy was a name applied to cockle sellers: As the season at which cockles are in greatest demand is generally the most stormy in the year — September to March — the sailors' wives at the seaport towns of Northumberland and Durham consider the cry of the cockle man as the harbinger of bad weather, and the sailor, when he hears the cry of 'cockles alive,' in a dark wintry night, concludes that a storm is at hand, and breathes a prayer, backwards, for the soul of Bad-Weather-Geordy.
