Notable people named Rayburn:
There was a Speaker of the House named Sam Rayburn, which explains the large jump in popularity of the name near his high point in politics. He was a very strong liberal, and hated the Republican party. If you are the sort of person (like me!) who is shares views with members of the Democratic party, Rayburn is a name you would want for your child (if it sounds nice to you, of course). There is also a very amazing high school English teacher named Steve Rayburn. You can ask anyone who had him at University Laboratory High School in Urbana, Illinois and get a VERY positive response. If you have high expectations for a very smart child, Rayburn is quite a name to live up to. The name sounds very intelligent.
Another great thing about Rayburn is that it's a last name. Last names are very innovative as first names. You hear of people being named Kennedy, and Lincoln, and these are last names, but they're in style and they are not a fad. They sound very intelligent and people with last names as their first will generally do well in business settings. It makes them seem very charismatic, and it's a very charming and creative way to express yourself when naming your baby. People seem drawn toward names like Aaron, Jeremy, Jacob, George, and William. If you name you baby after the first name of a famous person, people might not know who you're naming them after (unless you name your baby Barack or something). If you give your baby a last name as their first (and you're naming them after someone), it's much more obvious who they're named after but it still sounds cool and you won't have to explain. Besides, doesn't "Rayburn" sound way better than "Sam" or "Steve" as a first name? I guess if you're having a girl you could name her Sam (like Samantha), but what's so amazing is the way you can extend it with a middle name. Say your baby's last name will be Jackson. You could name her Samantha Ray Jackson. Doesn't that flow well?
