Baby Named for Atlantic Ocean

In 1912, a woman named Atlanta White applied for a marriage license to marry one William Brown. But the marriage license clerk wasn’t sure what to fill in for Atlanta’s nationality.

Why? Because Atlanta White was “born on an American ship in the Atlantic ocean 18 summers ago, when her father, Robert White, was migrating to his country from England. So perplexed were the parents of the new-born child that they named their baby girl after the Atlantic ocean.”
