I wasn't really named after anyone important. My parents apparently had no ideas on names which is rather sad. Apparently my name originated from my brother Steven who had a friend named Adam in school or something like that. He suggested it and it stuck. My middle name however is after my paternal grandfather Blair.
Funny enough my first and middle names might of been Hank Waltrip. Apparently my dad's "heroes" were Hank Williams Sr. (Hank Williams Jr. is a man I despise) and Darrell Waltrip (I also I don't like Nascar), so I suppose fate figured it'd be too ironic.
Were you named after someone?
