    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

    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)
    Carter (US president Jimmy Carter)
    Current Favorites:
    { Elisabeth "Elise" Kate :: Cassandra "Cassia" Vivienne :: Charlotte "Charlie" Lorraine :: Rosalie Nicole :: Catalina "Cate" Lucy }
    { Adam Carson :: Camden Bennett :: Alexander "Xander" Mason :: Aidan Blake :: William "Liam" Anthony :: Everett Cole }

    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.
