Babies named Thanksgiving

We’ve talked about people named Easter, Fourth (of July), Halloween, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year…what about Thanksgiving?

I mean, we’ve already met Dr. Happy Thanksgiving, but are there more?

Yes, at least a few dozen more. As you’d expect, nearly all were born in late November. Here are three examples:

The two most recent Thanksgivings I found were both born in the 1990s.

Fourth-of-July babies named “Fourth”

Did you know that all six of the people named “Fourth” in the current version of the U.S. Social Security Death Index (SSDI) were born on the Fourth of July?

Here they are, ordered by birth year:

  • Fourth Inscho (b. 1889 in Ohio)
  • Fourth July Smith (b. 1892 in Mississippi)
  • Fourth Benjamin Hendrick (b. 1897 in Oklahoma)
  • Fourth Marshall (b. 1899 in New York)
  • Fourth Freedom Thomas (b. 1902 in Washington)
  • Fourth E. Shaw (b. 1903 in Colorado)

But that’s not all! Six more the people with a variant of Fourth as their first name were also Independence Day babies: Fourthie Johns (1882), Fourthey Wolfe (1891), Fourtha Bolinger (1898), Fourtha Henory (1900), Fourtha Wilburn (1910), and Fourthie Cole (1911).

And, going beyond the SSDI to other types of records, there are still more people with the first name Fourth who were born on July 4th. They include…

  • Fourth Williams (b. 1875)
  • Fourth J. Wright (b. 1889 in Ohio)
  • Fourth Shupp (b. 1889 in Pennsylvania)
  • Fourth Condor (b. 1887 in Ohio)
  • Fourth Johnson (b. 1914 in Kentucky)

So, if you’re due on Monday, and you want to give your baby an unusual name, this could be the one! (And, if the baby just happens to be your fourth, the name comes with a double meaning — which is even better than a double rainbow.)
