    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 girl names that are somehow connected to history or, more specifically, US presidents?

    examples:
    girls
    Mackinley (US president William McKinley)
    Madison (US president James Madison)
    boys
    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)
    Current Favorites:
    { Adelyn :: Elisabeth "Elise" Kate :: Cassandra "Cassie" Vivienne :: Charlotte "Charlie" Lorraine :: Adelina :: Josephine "Josie" }
    { Everett Cole :: Adam Carson :: Camden Bennett :: Alexander "Xander" Mason :: Aidan Blake :: William "Liam" Anthony }

    Reagan (US president Ronald Reagan - amazing man!)
    Romney (Mitt Romney, presidential candidate)
    Nixon (used more commonly for a boy but could work for a girl)
    Rose (US president Roosevelt)
    Monroe (US president James Monroe)
    Taylor (US president Zachary Taylor)
    Hayes (US president Rutherford B. Hayes)

    I know of (through friend of a friend) two girls named Nixon, except one is spelled Nyxxann and one is spelled Nixxon. I have no idea why their parents felt the extra x was necessary, but I also don't think Nixon is the president I'd want to use as a namesake for my kid.

    I know a couple who wanted to name their daughter Reagan, but didn't want the presidential association so they said they changed the spelling. They named her Reagan...I guess googling how to spell the name was too much effort?
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    Well, I've always thought the first ladies' names were pretty - Eleanor, Louisa, Martha, Letitia, Edith, Ida, etc.
