Baby Names Inspired By Colonial America

I remember back when I was trying to come up with a name for my baby, I searched high and low for baby names. Nothing was too obscure or weird as a source for name inspiration. So, in this vein and with the fact that Thanksgiving is coming up, I thought – where better to look for baby name inspiration than the pilgrims of colonial America. I was actually pretty surprised that I really liked a lot of the names I came across! Apparently the pilgrims were good name choosers (side note: I actually really think “Pilgrim” would make a cute name for a baby, for what it’s worth).

My favorites are Primrose and Verity for a girl and Amos and Gideon for a boy. Did any of you see your little one’s name on this list?
