Fun stuff, Cait...here's a famous one for you (maybe the most famous): Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, aka Woody Guthrie. The interesting part is that he was born in July 1912, just after Wilson had been nominated at the Democratic National Convention but before he was elected president. Makes me wonder how many namesakes of unsuccessful presidential candidates there are (there was a congressman from South Carolina in the 1960s named William Jennings Bryan Dorn). And will the name "Sarah" make a comeback among conservative parents?
