Baby Names Inspired by Places

I love to travel. Admittedly, with two kids and several other demands in my life, I don’t get to do it as often as I would like. But the opportunities I have had to travel have been absolutely magical.  I just love meeting new people and learning about new cultures. And, of course, I love trying new foods.

I always enjoy meeting people whose names seem to have been inspired by a place. It always makes me wonder what the story is behind their name. Did their parents meet there? Were they conceived in that location? Is it a place their parent dream of visiting? Although I know there may not be a story there, I always imagine some interesting tale about why the person was named after that place.

Here are a few of my favorite baby names inspired by cities, states and countries across the world. Moms-to-be, think about what your favorite places are. Maybe they can serve as inspiration for your little one’s name.
