he who supplants
This popular, traditional name has been found in the Bible, among British royalty and in the White House. No fewer than six US presidents—and six Scottish kings—have been named James. Its pop-culture cool is a direct descendant of James Bond and James Dean. It’s also in vogue as a fashionably trendy middle name for girls, less frequently as a first name. That didn’t stop Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively from naming their eldest daughter James. Non-English takes are fresh and plentiful, from the Irish Seamus and the French Jacques to the Italian Giacomo and the Scottish Hamish.
