Etymology & Historical Origin - Remember

In the category of Virtue Names, Remember is a female given name coined by the Puritans sometime in the early 17th century. We know this because a five year old girl named Remember Allerton was aboard the Mayflower ship with her parents and siblings when it sailed to America in 1620. As an English vocabulary word, “remember” means “retain in mind, recall to mind” from the Latin prefix “re-“ (again) and “memorari” (be mindful of), ultimately derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *(s)mer- meaning “to remember, to mourn, think of” (Pok. 969-970). In the sense of a female personal name, Remember was invented by Christian non-conformists as a way of instilling the notion of remembering that Christ died for our sins. To be “mindful” of God and the Christian virtues in general.

Popularity of the Name Remember

Remember was basically one of the first 100 names to arrive in the New World (later known as the United States of America), not counting the earlier lost settlement in Roanoke, Virginia. She came to New Plymouth on the Mayflower along with other girls named Humility Cooper and Fear Brewster (no, we’re not kidding). Yet no one “remembers” Remember. She didn’t do a whole lot but grow up, marry a guy named Moses Maverick, have seven children and die before 40. Remember is a name hardly – if ever – used. It has never once appeared on the U.S. naming charts. Not even one single baby born in the United States in 2012 was called Remember. It seems everyone has forgotten about this name. Go figure.
