The cat that washed up on Governors Island shore last month has been named. And she is Molly Brown, after the Unsinkable Molly Brown! According to the Governors Island Blog:

It seems the most popular name was Molly Brown, for the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown, who became famous after travelling on the Titanic‘s ill fated journey. After boarding lifeboat #6 once the Titanic struck ice, Molly helped row the boat with other women for hours and looked for survivors in the surrounding waters. She assisted those who had lost everything in the tragedy and raised funds to assist survivors as they started a new life after losing so much.

Other names suggested

were Mary Ann or Ginger, Salty, and Buttermilk (for the channel).

Governors Island is gearing up for its opening on May 27—it's unclear what role Molly Brown will have.
