WhitePages Data Finds John Adams, Robert Morris, and John Hancock Most Popular Names Shared with America’s Founding Fathers

Just in time for Independence Day, WhitePages, the leading provider of contact information for people and businesses in the U.S., reveals the most popular names in the United States that are shared with some of our country’s most patriotic founders. The data shows that John Adams (9,893 people), Robert Morris (7,367 people), and John Hancock (1,616 people), are the top three most common names of our Founding Fathers.

Rounding out the top five in the list of the 14 most popular Founding Fathers names are George Washington (1,513 people) and Samuel Adams (1,100 people).

“It’s interesting to note that the top two most common names, John Adams and Robert Morris, are most popular in Florida,” says Liz Powell, culture and trend expert from WhitePages. “While Florida may have been the 27th state to enter the Union, it is the number one state for patriotic names.”

While Betsy Ross may not be a Founding Father, WhitePages included her on the list at number fourteen, with 163 people in the United States sharing the name. The state with the most Betsy Rosses? Again, it’s Florida.
