The 1700s were a riotous time of change. Europe and Asia, of course, were well-established at this time, and as an age of discovery and trade dawned, so, too, did an age of changing established traditions. And toward the middle to the end of the 1700s came a time of transatlantic colonization and history-making events in the Americas. No matter where you were in the 1700s, history was well and truly in the making. A 1700s baby girl, boy, or gender-neutral name houses decades of turmoil and exploration in just a few syllables.
