Baby Names Chosen by U.S. Presidential Candidates

Having a hard time deciding which presidential candidate to back? Maybe you could look at baby-naming tastes.

Below are the names of the children of the major Republican and Democratic candidates. (I did my best to list only full first names, and I didn’t count stepchildren.)

Do any of the names happen to be favorites of yours? Who knows — maybe if you and a particular candidate like the same names, you’ll also share similar views on the issues.
