I’m the 11th generation from a fellow named William White. From Mayflowerhistory.com:
William and his wife Susanna came on the Mayflower in 1620 with son Resolved; Susanna gave birth to son Peregrine while the Mayflower was still anchored off the top of Cape Cod waiting for the Pilgrims to discover a place to build their colony. William died the first winter, on the same day as three other passengers, including William Mullins. His wife Susanna remarried to Edward Winslow a few months later, being the first marriage to occur at Plymouth.
Resolved is my ancestor. I’m liking that name.
verb, -solved, -solv⋅ing, noun–verb (used with object)

Oh, and I’m running at 7. Maybe it’s my 10th Great Grandfather’s influence. Resolved.
