Jefferson This first name utilizes the surname of the author of the Declaration of Independence and our country's third president. It's a name that's fallen out of favor slightly over the past decade—perhaps its ready for a comeback?
Franklin Consider this one a two-fer: It could be a homage to Founding Father Ben Franklin, or in honor of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the only four-term president, and the man who helped get our country through the Great Depression and most of World War II.
Sam You could always name your child after Uncle Sam—the patriotic symbol of our country. Going for the less-formal Sam instead of Samuel gives your son a more casual air.
Would you give your child a name that suits the holiday?
