Or, if you prefer to stick to an Italian explorer named John, you could just substitute Cabot with Verrazzano. Same first name, same nationality, only thing I don't quite get is why in english speaking countries Giovanni Caboto became John Cabot while Giovanni da Verrazzano never had his name changed.
Encyclopaedia Britannica gives "Christopher Columbus, Italian Cristoforo Colombo, Spanish Cristóbal Colón, (born between August 26 and October 31?, 1451, Genoa [Italy]—died May 20, 1506, Valladolid, Spain)"
