James T. Kirk is named after his mum's 'Love instructor'.
I planned on just leaving that one alone.
Given the scene in the last movie where Kirk's first name was arrived upon, umm exactly who was mommy's "love instructor" again?

Well, in the TMP novel Kirk says he was named James
"because it was both the name of my fatherís beloved brother as well as that of my motherís first love instructor."
The 2009 movie says he was named after his Mom's dad. Maybe James is a very common name in the 23rd Century?
