Earlier North American thanksgivings were attributed to Spanish conquistadors Francisco Vasquez de Coronado (in Texas, in 1541) and Pedro Menendez de Aviles (in Florida, in 1565). Canadian Thanksgiving can be traced back to English explorer Martin Frobisher, who celebrated a thanksgiving in 1578.

Thankful Names


The Puritans had a well-known affinity for virtue names such as Charity, Prudence and Temperance. In fact, one name they sometimes used for females was Thankful (often spelled Thankfull).

More exotic names with similar meanings include Jadon (male, Hebrew), Shakir (male, Arabic), Taonga (unisex, Tumbuka), Temitope (unisex, Yoruba) and Tendai (female, Shona).
