101 places to name your baby after

by Sophie Knight |

Naming your baby after a place has been popular for generations, and continues to be a popular approach to picking a baby name.

Perhaps you want to name your baby after the place they were conceived, or you’d like to forever remember a romantic destination you visited with your other half. Or perhaps this list will simply serve as inspiration for picking your newborn’s moniker. This list contains some popular choices as well as some cool desintations that you (hopefully) won’t hear in the playground.

Lots of celebrities go for place names as their baby names - think Brooklyn Beckham, Memphis (Bono’s daughter), Moroccan (Mariah Carey’s son) - or perhaps name your little one after a whole direction, rather than a place - like North West.
