    I think Beatrice or Beatrix would be perfect, since they mean 'voyager' and have lots of literary associations.

    Saira (not sure of pronounciation) means traveller in Arabic

    Isra - Arabic for "nocturnal journey"

    Kit - After Kit Carson, an American frontiersman and explorer

    Other famous explorers:
    Harriet Chalmers Adams - writer/Premier Female Explorer of Her Time
    Amelia Earhart
    The four founding embers of the Society of women explorers:
    Marguerite Harrison
    Blair Niles
    Gertrude Shelby (Could use either name)
    Gertrude Emerson
    Louise Arner Boyd - Arctic Explorer
    Isabella Bird - Travelled the world
    Gudridur - Most travelled woman of the middle ages. Explored the New World 500 years before Columbus. Perhaps Gurda/Gerda would be an alternate version.

    I just got a book from the library called "Baby Names Made Easy" by Amanda Elizabeth Barden that has a section on travel related names. The whole book is organized by meaning, it is pretty neat. Here are a few good ones:
    Journey - travel
    Odessa - odyssey
    Sloane - Irish urname "expedition"
    Viatrix - traveler
    Zita - to seek

    There are others but most have to do with a direction (north etc.) or mean "foreigner". I think a few months back there was a blog post here that had to do with traveling and walking. Good luck!
