Oceanus Hopkins (1620 – c. 1627) was the first and only child born on the Mayflower during its historic voyage which brought the Pilgrims to America. He was born to Stephen Hopkins and his wife, Elizabeth, sometime between the boarding and arrival dates of September 6 and November 9, 1620. He did not survive long, and was dead before the 1623 Division of Land. Oceanus Hopkins was named so because he was born in a ship in the Atlantic Ocean and the Latin word for the ocean is Oceanus.
