Texas Governors

James is the most common name of Texas Governors and Rick Perry is on that list because his given name is James. Other governors have been known by nicknames, like Pa Ferguson, or by middle names, like Price Daniels. Others, like Pat, Coke and Dolph, were just naturally born with their names. At birth, Coke Stevenson was named after Governor Richard Coke, although they are not related.
