What is the origin of the Starbucks name?

b. It’s a literary reference. (and a little be of c. It’s named after a town.)

To the book worms out there, this was an easy one. “Starbucks” is a reference from Moby Dick where Starbuck is Captain Ahab’s first mate!

If you answered c. – you’re not wrong! There is a mining town in Washington (the Starbuck birthplace) called “Starbo” that helped the founders land on the Starbucks name.
