People with famous names I have known

This was inspired by a recent post of miss_breeziness . "People with famous names" means non-famous people who have the same names as famous people. "known" means I learned their first and last names (obviously) and had at least one conversation with them.

In no particular order:

  1. Robert Kennedy
  2. John Kennedy
  3. Richard Nixon
  4. Robert Duvall
  5. Courtney Love
  6. Abraham Lincoln

Boy, their stories in everyday life must be really interesting. I've read a magazine article about people like that - including a real James Bond and Hugh Grant. I've also read another article about people whose real name is Harry Potter (there were loads of them!).

And speaking of presidents' names, why am I not surprised to see this:

How many have your name?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that there's a lot more George Bush's in America than there are Barack Obama's.

More Jimmy Carter's too. There used to be a store I would stop in sometime on trips between the triangle area and Charlotte that was run by a guy named Jimmy Carter. (I didn't actually meet him, so I didn't include him on the list of people I knew.)

Also, many years ago (early 80's) I heard a news story about a cop named Richard Nixon arresting a crook named Jimmy Carter.

:D

And I feel sorry for those people named George Bush...they must put up with a lot of ribbing from liberals...
