Fletcher Christian was the leader of the famed mutiny on HMS Bounty, eventually settling on the remote Pitcairn Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Here he had a son, for whom he wanted to have a name that had ‘nothing to do with England’. What was the son called?

Answer: Thursday October Christian, named after the day and month of his birth. Thursday must have liked his name, as he christened his own son Thursday October Christian II.
