Picking a strong name for a baby is always a challenge. You need the name to work with your last name, not evoke any ex-boyfriends or ex-girlfriends, keep all the in-laws happy, and suit the baby’s personality. Names can also be aspirational – do you want your child to sound like a movie star? A sportscaster? An author?

In honor of the upcoming President’s Day holiday, here are some names inspired by great Presidents and their families!
