Only one Mary? First Ladies apparently have more original names than their husbands

I think that is to be expected, as popular female names are more diverse anyway. It's not as different as it could be though. Counting Bill = William, Jimmy = James etc, I make it 28 different names for the men and 38 for the women.

Julia Tyler was John Tyler's second wife, not his first. She was quite the prima donna, too.

But well respected, as I suspect you know. She received visitors from both the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War.

Couldn't get Laura Bush. My mind just went blank on her.

Awh.. I just guessed Laura :3

That looks like Peter Griffin after Laura's name.

I almost never ask for spelling exceptions, but could "Leticia" be accepted for "Letitia"? It's not a super common name, but both spellings are used, and anyone who can guess either version deserves the point, I think (no bias or anything, of course).

Hopefully we don't see Bill on this list. We'll have to call him First Gentleman

Thank goodness I decided to try “Lady Bird” for Lyndon Johnson. At first I thought that it wouldn’t count, but then I decided I might as well try it anyway.

I don’t think I ever in my heard her referred to as Claudia.

Everyone should've gotten Edith Wilson, effectively the only female US President.

Chester A. Arthur's sister, Mary Arthur McElroy, served as hostess of the White House during her brother's tenure as president; since his wife died before he became president.

One of Jefferson's daughters got to be First Lady. The rest had to live in the servants' quarters.

I remembered that Frances Cleveland had gone by "Frank" early on in life, but after trying that and "Frankie" to no avail, I couldn't remember what the more feminine version of her name was. Tried "Francine," but didn't hit on "Frances." Alas.

Only knew about 10 of them (I'm European), then started guessing common female names and ended up with 23 points.

Tried to think of old school names. Guessed Angelica, Eliza, and Peggy. Thanks Hamilton. :)

Can't believe there's not a single Hortense on this list. Sad.

A number of "Lizzes."

Lucy Hayes was known as "Lemonade Lucy," as she didn't permit alcohol in the White House. The moniker may not have been used extensively until past her husband's term.

And I believe Rosalynn Carter's White House nickname was "Bruiser."

I think Sally Hemmings should be accepted

Chester Arthur, well, yeah but before he came to the presidency, he had Ellen Arthur, doesn't it count?
