Christopher Lloyd, George W. Bush, Stephanie McMahon, Paul Giamatti & John Mayer are some of the celebrities who hail from Connecticut.

Often grouped along with New York and New Jersey as a part of the tristate area, Connecticut occupies the southernmost area of the New England region among the northeastern United States. It is named after River Connecticut, whose name traces back to a word meaning ‘long tidal river’. With Hartford as its capital and Bridgeport as its most populous state, it is often referred to as ‘The Constitution State’ or even ‘The Nutmeg State’. Although it is 3rd smallest by area, it is the fourth most densely populated state. Many famous ‘Connecticuters’ have made it huge internationally, in several spheres of life. Famous authors and writers such as Suzanne Collins, Stephenie Meyer and Noah Webster all were born in the state of Connecticut. The state is well-known for creating athletes such as Walter Camp, Rajai David, Ryan Gomes, Matt Harvey and Willie Pep. So many famous entertainers and actors such as Meg Ryan, Seth MacFarlane, Christopher Llyod, Katherine Heigl and Richard Belzer are originally from Connecticut. We are quite certain that you will be surprised to know all the other prominent legends who were born in and who started their journey to success from Connecticut.
