Thanksgiving names are an assortment of festive choices inspired by the holiday.

Pilgrim names, such as Remember and Wrestling, are some of the most, well, memorable of the group. Many of the Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower were Puritans, known for using extreme virtue names. However, the majority of Pilgrims answered to classic names such as Christopher and Alice.

Thanksgiving names are largely historic choices, in line with the traditional American holiday. If you prefer newer names, surname names or word names related to the season are worthy options. Among the more contemporary choices connected to the holiday are Macy, as in the Macy‘s Thanksgiving Day Parade, November, and Autumn.

Food, spice, and herb names, of course, are perhaps the most fitting Thanksgiving names. Rosemary, Plum, and Sage are some of the food names that best fit the holiday theme.
