Personal experiences with the name Vernon: | Edit

I know a guy in his 20s named Vernon. He is actually a III in his family so he goes by Trey (I don't blame him).

My grandfather, who was born in 1913, is named George Vernon, but has always just gone by Vernon. The name was quite popular 100 years ago. Perhaps it's due for a comeback?
