Pilgrim Names

While the names of the Pilgrims are most often thought of as being Puritan virtue names, Pilgrim names actually varied in style. Names of the people on the Mayflower include Biblical classics like Solomon and Susanna, royal names like Elizabeth and James, and virtuous word names like Remember and Wrestling. Pilgrim names are especially appropriate for a Thanksgiving baby, although they can be used any time of year. Here is the full list of names of pilgrims aboard the Mayflower.
