Jason. Elmer. Theodore. Kyle. What's in a name? For something you're expected to stick with for your whole life, names seem to come and go as quickly as fashion trends.

Regardless, these names live on in American history through the people to whom they are given. Why do parents choose the baby names they do? We've been working on this video for a while. Hope you like it!
