The following names were taken from the Rugby School Register for the years of 1722 to 1742. The students of the school came from privileged backgrounds so their given names were not necessarily representative of the population as a whole. The most popular name during this time at the school was actually the classic John.
1724- Fulwar Humberston
1732- Lancelot, Clarke, Bassett
1742- Wickens, Giles, Maurice, Landon
Fulwar Humberston Skipwith inherited his father's first name, but I wonder how he got his middle name. Landon and Witt sound very modern to me. And how about Leonard? I'm seeing it around a lot these days, but that might be because of The Big Bang Theory.
