Did Your Ancestors Immigrate? Ship Names as Baby Names

Many of us have ancestors who traveled by sea. But few of us know the names of the ships that conveyed our ancestors from place to place. That’s too bad, because some of these vessels had names like:

M. F. Elliott
Mabel Gale
Madeleine Constance
Maggie Todd
Malcolm Baxter Jr
Manuel Calvo
Marco Minghetti
Margaret May Riley
Margarethe Russ
Margery Austin
Margit Skogland
Maria Valerie
Marie di Giorgio
Marion G. Douglas
Mary G. Maynard
Mary Thomas
Maurice R. Thurlow
Max Horten
Maxwell R
Melissa Trask
Miguel Jover
Myron C. Taylor

All of the above are actual ship names. These particular ships arrived at Ellis Island in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They could inspire some great baby names, couldn’t they?

Of course, performing genealogical research and then combing through passenger manifests is tedious business. And, even then, there’s no guarantee that the ship names you find in your family tree will be appropriate baby names.

But if you do put the time in, you might just discover a name that not only appeals to you, but is symbolic of your family, of overcoming hardship, of starting a new life. A name like that would certainly give your child a cool story to tell one day.
