1. There has been only one U.S. president whose full name each letter appears once and only once. Name him.

2. Who is the only U.S. president whose vice-president's last name appears in his full name (for example, if George Bush's vice-president was named Gebus, this would work: georGE BUSh)?

3. Which president was also a king?

James Polk?

I think I once heard this about Lincoln, but I don't know who his vice president was.

Were they considering making Washington a king before they decided on President? Don't know, but it would be a possibility

1. Sorry, Greg, but remember I specified the full name. Polk's full name is John Knox Polk - O, K and N are are all repeated in his full name.

2. Does anybody have an answer for this one yet?

3. Nope. It wasn't Washington.

Vice President was Hannibal HAMLIN.

to give me a middle name."

I don't recall any 'President King'.

Mabye it's a president who, during a treaty or some such, was named honorary ruler of Ombobowmowmow, or some other 3rd world state.
Jihn Adams was often referred to as "His Rotundity"....does that count?

Born Leslie Lynch King, Jr., our thirty-eighth President
was renamed after his mother remarried.

He didn't just get a new last name; he got a new first, middle
and last name. (Isn't it odd that he kept the "Jr."?)

We know him better as Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr.
