Interesting about the name Kermit...

The name Kermit came to prominence through Kermit Roosevelt (October 10, 1889 – June 4, 1943 was an American businessman, soldier, explorer, and writer.) , the eldest son of President Theodore Roosevelt,
named for Robert Kermit, a maternal great-uncle. The character Kermit the Frog was introduced in 1955 by Jim Henson, and made the name known internationally through the television programs Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. Kermit was a Top 500 name until the 1960s, not coincidentally the decade in which Kermit the Frog became well known, proving that it isn't easy being green, even for a name.
