4 of 14
Zachary Taylor, the 12th U.S. president, was a strong nationalist, bent on preserving the Union as talks of a civil war brewed during his presidency from 1849-1850 (his term was cut short by his death from cholera). Taylor became a popular boys' name in the 1990s, but it's now more common as a girls' name. Singer Taylor Swift's fame undoubtedly gives the name a boost. Tim and Elisabeth Hassleback have a son named Taylor, and David Hasselhoff has a daughter named Taylor.
