President baby names, Carter


Learn about the name Carter.

The Iran hostage crisis and rising inflation overshadowed the accomplishments of James "Jimmy" Carter, our 39th president. But he made great contributions during his single term, such as the creation of the Department of Education and the expansion of our National Parks System. Carter is a nice name for a boy or a girl. Notably, James is the most popular first name in the history of our U.S. presidents (six were named James: Madison, Monroe, Polk, Buchanan, Garfield, and Carter).
