The 22-year-old country singer Taylor Alison Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania and oddly enough she has said that in school her favorite subject was reading.
Over the years there has been widespread speculation as to who Taylor Swift was named after. Some news publications and agencies have stated that she was named after Elizabeth Taylor.
Others have said that she was named after comedian Rip Taylor, President Zachary Taylor, and even New York Giants football legend Lawrence Taylor.
