Pilgrims (1600's), Colonists (1700's), and Pioneers (1800's)
The pilgrims were free to name their children whatever they wanted, and they were very creative! Their names were like prayers for strength, blessings, and reflections of their faith in practicing kindness, and the true teachings of their teacher.
On the Mayflower and first boatloads were children named: Humility, Resolved, Wrestling (with God), Remember (God), and Oceanus, for the boy born in the middle of the sea. They gave them names from the Old Testament, such as Obadiah, or classical Greek literature, such as Parthenon; or made them up from English, with names like Reliance, Learned, Temperance, and Thankful, for girls; and Experience, Prosper, Greengrove, and Principle, for boys.

Early Americans also found that through middle names they could preserve family last names. Many of these worked their way up to become first names, like Clayton, Winston, Taylor, Allison (Allinson) and Travis.
