It has been suggested that the suburb of Success is named after the ship commanded by Captain James Stirling when he visited and explored the Swan River in 1827. The name was approved for the suburb in 1973, although the boundaries have since been changed. In 1986 the Cockburn Shire Council suggested naming the area Omeo after a ship that went ashore at Coogee, however this name was duplicated in Victoria and eventually the name Success was agreed upon.
