US president names
As a history nerd, I have grown to really like names with subtle (Or even obvious sometimes) history connections! Can you think of any boy names that are somehow connected to history or, more specifically, US presidents? I posted a thread for girls too, so if you have ideas on either gender, let me know! Thanks
Mackinley (US president William McKinley)
Madison (US president James Madison)
Lincoln (US president Abraham Lincoln)
William (US presidents William Henry Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft)
John (US presidents John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Tyler, John F. Kennedy)
Carter (US president Jimmy Carter)
Tyler (John Tyler)
George (both Bushes)
Walker (George W.'s middle name)
Wilson (Reagan's middle name)
Clark (Herbert Hoover's middle name)
Abram (Garfield's middle name)
Knox (Polk's middle name)
thanks! I hadn't thought of middle names!
I'd echo George, but not because of the Bushes, but because of the father of our nation, Mr George Washington.
Franklin is such a lovely and underused name, and also the first name of my favourite US President, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
I second Franklin. And add Theodore! I adore Grover, Abraham and Lincoln. I also like Ike.
