Re: Most popular male names since 1960s

Scott is a fairly common name, but I'm the only Scot I know who spells his name with one "T." (It wasn't my idea, but I kind of like it.)

My brothers name is William Jacob, two of the most popular names. He wound up naming his son Jacob William, yeah so make of that what you will.
Probably a way of giving the son his father's name without the confusion that can result from being a Suchandsuch, Jr.

Or a son can have his father's first name but a different middle name, like the Reagans or the Bushes. Or the son can use a different nickname, e.g. Eugene Wesley Roddenberry Jr. who goes by "Rod" Roddenberry.
