These baby names salute the trailblazers and activists who fought for women’s rights and gender equality throughout history.

Women’s rights advocate Lucretia Mott — mentor of suffragette Elizabeth Cady Stanton — is a worthy namesake.

Steinem’s name had its glory days from 1920-1955 when it was in the Top 25. It’s found a new freshness since Maggie Gyllenhaal chose it for her daughter in 2012.

This exotic form of Agnes is well-represented in women’s history: Suffragettes Inez Milholland and Inez Hayes Irwin both worked tirelessly to secure women’s voting rights.

Truth, Isabella, Belle
African-American abolitionist and women’s rights activist Sojourner Truth’s real name was Isabella “Belle” Baumfree before she changed it in 1843.

Alice & Lucy
Two of the most popular vintage names today are those of  activists Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, who fought together for women’s equality with “one mind and spirit.”

Anthony, Stanton
The surnames of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, founders of the National Woman Suffrage Association, are choices boys can wear well!
