International naming

When Victoria and David Beckham named their son Brooklyn — the NY borough in which he was conceived — my first thought was, “What were they doing in Brooklyn?”

My next thought, of course, was, “That is a cute name!” There are plenty of baby names taken from cities, states and countries. If you have no real connection to the place, that’s fine. But if your baby was actually conceived there — how perfect!
I was thinking of this on the drive to work today, after Darling Husband jokingly said we should start trying on the trip we will be taking shortly before My Best Friend’s Wedding
I quickly shot down that idea — since I am so in love with my matron of honour gown — but said I liked the idea of naming our baby after the place they were conceived.
Here are just a few “place names” to consider … with stars by my favourites!
  • Brooklyn
  • Orlando
  • Jackson***
  • Kingston
  • Troy
  • Cheyenne
  • Florence
  • Geneva
  • Marseilles
  • Medina
  • Odessa
  • Phoenix
  • Rome
  • Savannah***
  • Venice
  • Vienna
  • Madison
  • Hudson
  • Victoria
  • Olympia
  • Austin
  • Alexandria
  • Bailey
  • Paris
  • London
  • Augusta
  • Adelaide***
  • Helena
  • Catalina
  • Virginia
Hmmm, maybe we should postpone our trip until after the necessary hold-off — perhaps a jaunt down to Savannah, Georgia?

So what do you think?
