The name “Put-in-Bay” originally only referred to the bay itself. In the latter-1700s, the schooners sailing on Lake Erie, would “put in” to this bay, to wait out bad weather on Lake Erie. (Many of the unfamiliar sailors used the slang phonetic term, puddin’ (or pudding) bay, resulting in later local-historians’ attempt to attribute various explanations for the term “pudding bay”, which, in reality, had no meaning, but was simply a slang phonetic variant of “Put-in-Bay”.)Put-in-bay_ohio
