Peregrine is a gender-neutral name derived from the Latin peregrinus. Although there is a falcon known by the same moniker, it actually means “traveler” or “wanderer” and is a name that goes back to the Age of Exploration. In 1620, the first English child born in the New World was born on board the Mayflower as it sat in the harbor of what is now Cape Cod. He was named Peregrine, a fitting choice for a little one about to start life afresh in a different part of the world. If you love travel, this is a sweet way to share that passion with baby and inspire their inner explorer.
