Many expected the name Cormac to take off in the mid-eighties when All-American Cormac Carney starred for UCLA as a gritty wide receiver. Cormac Carney played a year in the pros for the Memphis Showboats before moving on to Harvard Law and was recently appointed to the federal bench by President Bush. Judge Carney was unavailable for comment at the time of publication of this blog. Cormac MacCuilenan, an Irish bishop and King of Cashel in the early 900's, was responsible for "Cormac's Glossary" - an Irish Glossary of over 1,400 words.
Despite its underutilization, Cormac remains a strong name in age of increasingly sissified names. Also noteworthy is that the Feast Day of St. Cormac is in the ballpark of the due date.
