Age 22

Before the Twenty-second Amendment, the Presidency didn’t have a set number limit on how many times they could be elected or re-elected to the office of President of the United States. The Amendment sets that limit to two times, consecutively or not, and sets additional conditions for presidents who succeed to the unexpired terms of their predecessors.

Name Meaning

English:1. patronymic from the medieval personal name Filkin, a diminutive from a short form of Philip . 2. habitational name from a place so called in Oxfordshire, whose name is probably a tribal derivative (with Old English -ingas ‘people of’) of the Old English personal name Filica (of uncertain origin). Surname forms such as de Filking(es) are found in the surrounding area from the 12th and 13th centuries.
