Connecticut Governors

66 men and 2 women have governed the State of Connecticut. At 7 governors, John is the most common name. With 5 governors each, Charles and William tie for second most common name. So that puts Henry in third place with 4 governors.

Luzon is the most uncommon name and the only light we can shed on that is that it means “big light” when referring to the largest Phillipine island. Abiram is the name of 3 people in the Old Testament, meaning “my father is exalted.”
