About Submit Root

"Submit" is an odd-sounding name to anyone in the 21st century. Submit Cook (Root) apparently liked it enough to give the name to one of her children (or she submitted to her husband's decision to do so!). There were at least hundreds of females given this name from the 17th into early 19th century in America. It had what may be a Puritanical flavor, as would be the case in a culture embracing submission to God's will. [Michael Delahunt, 2011.]
