I’m having a customs necklace made with my son’s name (George). I will be the one wearing the necklace- in order for it to be grammatically correct do I use, Γεώργιος vs. Γεώργιo ?

The best would be Γεώργιος (since you are using his formal name - the name, which was given during the baptism, otherwise it could be Γιώργος), because it doesn't have context and it might seem a bit bizarre to use it in its conjugated form.

We will have him baptized in the spring! So now I’m curious what is the difference between Γιώργος vs Γεώργιος?
Thank  you for your help!
"Γεώργιος" is the more formal/official version of the name.  People will call him "Γιώργο", and will refer to him as "ο Γιώργος"  while all legal documents will state " Γεώργιος", "ο Γεώργιος"
