American Supreme Court Justice Names
I have been taking Constitutional law recently so excuse me if this is only of interest to me, but I have found the names of the Supreme Court Justices very interesting of late. Their names are VERY Anglo-Saxon and very classic but there are some surprises in the bunch, names that are over the top with splendor (I'm looking at you Lucius Quintus Cinciannatus Lamar), some that are just weird (who names their baby Salmon?), some that sound very modern (Owen and Wiley) and a LOT of great surnames (firstnames Smith and Potter).
Here is a list of all the justices:here. I would love to hear which ones people think are usable or if they inspire anything. Contrary to my impression, not all 19th century American men were named James and John.
Most of them are male of course, so I thought I'd post here (Although I think Sonia and Elena are amazing names, Ruth and Sandra are less interesting, though Day is an interesting middle).
