My wife is a naturalized US citizen who shares the late president's birthday. We are both independent-minded (read stubborn) conservatives who love the 40th president of the United States. We joked with everyone that if we had a boy or girl it did not matter as they would have been named after great men. Our would-be son would have been named after his great-grandfather. However, if you haven't guessed yet or looked up Feb. 19, 2007, it just happened to be President's Day that year, so it was very fitting that we had a girl. She too is an independent-minded young lady with a personality that the late president would have enjoyed. We have our out-going, little actress, Reagan Delaney. I am withholding our last name."

  • "I think this name would be cool, for a cat maybe, if it weren't for the associations it provokes. It is a highly charged name. I wonder if generations to follow will similarly latch on to names like this, forever marking their offspring as the spawn of people who naievly embrace corruption, i.e. in 2025 will there be people posting comments saying "I want to name my baby Rumsfeld, whether it's a boy or girl!""

  • "Not even a regular fad-name, but one with politics dragged into it. How gauche. Your little "Reagans" are going turn fanatically Democrat as soon as they're out from under your roofs. Then you'll end up with little girls named "Clinton" as grandchildren, just to complete the vicious cycle." Sep. 20, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "It is a fad name. One cannot even find it before 1994. While it is currently number 89 for girl's names, my nephew named his son Reagan a couple of years ago. My son now proposes to name his daughter Reagan. I think it is nice when a name at least indicates gender." Jul. 13, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Reagan. I was born in 1975 so I started school the year Ronald Reagan was elected. I was made fun of a lot and always hated my name when I was younger. There's still an old teacher of mine from middle school who calls me "Reaganomics." As I've gotten older though I have learned to like my name more. I get a lot of comments on how pretty the name is. I have met many Reagan's throughout the years with many different spellings. All of them were female. I suppose girls who are named Reagan now will never be made fun of like I was in school because of my name." Nov. 13, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Reagan Joy and our last name is wonderfully Irish so it goes along well with it too. The middle name was my mother's name. My parents knew the President when he was Governor...they actually met when he was running for the office. So we find the tribute to him quite appropriate. That, and the fact that we have been active in politics for our entire careers...;). She fits her name to a "t" and has been a "joy" since her birth in 2006. Such a blessing!"

I don't care if he was a great president or not, I just don't want that to be the first thing to come out of peoples' mouths! I also don't like when people call me Ree-gan. It's Ray, like a ray of light! I hope as time goes on this name becomes more popular. Even though I am an adult, and comfortable with myself, I still wish for a name that is more normal! And yes, Reagan can be for both boys and girls... I've met a few of both in my life. Keep naming your babies Reagan so the rest of us Reagans have company!! Great post!!"

Our son is Riley and I still can't believe I did something as cute as naming them Riley and Reagan. She was born in August of 07 and her full name is Reagan Abigail. It seems to fit her really well and I can't imagine naming her anything else. What I didn't realize at the time was that our last name is Davis and Nancy Reagan was Nancy Davis Reagan."

  • "In Shapespeare's King Lear Reagan was the name of one of the King's daughters. She falsley professed her love for her father and then betrayed him, estentially condemning the old man to homelessness. She also ripped the beard off an eldery male servant. NOT the historical connotation I would look for when naming a child, especially when it comes from such a famous source (ie everyone taking high school lit will look at your kid and say, wow, will you do that to your dad??)"

  • "It's not politics. It's naming your children after someone you admire or respect (a good reason not to hold your breath waiting for little "Clintons" to start being born). I also named my daughter after our 40th president. She's getting a good, Classical education, and thus is likely to be too intelligent ever to become a "fanatical Democrat"."
