President baby names, Kennedy JFK


Learn about the name Kennedy.

Our famed 35th president, John F. Kennedy, was the youngest man elected president and the nation's first Roman Catholic president. Before his tragic assassination in 1963, he laid the groundwork for civil rights gains, created the Peace Corps, and safely negotiated the Cuban Missile Crisis.
