Synonyms of "George" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Thank you George. and Thank you, George. ?
A: Neither is more correct than the other. The only difference is that the sentence with the comma implies a slight pause after "Thank you".

With that being said, though both sentences aren't incorrect, I think the sentence without the comma is more common. But, in reality, it's an extremely small difference.
