Naming a child is serious business, as they carry that moniker forever. And although the success of your kiddo isn’t solely dependent on their name (that’s way too much pressure), it can indeed play a role in their outlook on life. Naming your child after a former leader of our nation could give them the confidence boost they need to change the world. Presidential baby names may not rank high on the baby naming lists but there are lots of good reasons to name your baby after a former POTUS or FLOTUS.
Knowing they share their name with a respected and well-liked leader could do huge things for a child’s self confidence. Perhaps even inspire them to follow in their namesake’s footsteps. Whether your baby decides to grow up to be president or not, presidential baby names are still worth considering because they are downright classy and motivational.
So if you’re looking to raise a future leader of the free world, or just a leader of the student council, these 13 names of former presidents and first lady’s (because we all know they are the ones who are really in charge) is sure to have one that strikes a chord.
