I like Indiana for a boy. I can't get past Indiana Jones enough to see it on a girl.

I love and would actually use Vienna.

Ones I like on other people's kids, but not enough to use them:
Savannah
Cambria
Israel
Paris
London
Italy (or Italia)
Ireland
Sweden

I'm sure there are more, but it's late and I'm tired.

Other "place" names I've heard include
Aspen
Sierra (after the Sierra Nevadas)
Vail (Colorado)
Summit
Rainier (Mt. Rainier)
Everest
Moraine
Montana

I'm not necessarily a big fan of those type of names though. Only way I'd use a "place" name is if that place had a special meaning to me, KWIM?

I like Adelaide and Virginia. There's a place in Italy called Trieste (tree-est) and I think that would be a pretty name. Overall, though I don't like most place names.

I love Brooklyn obviously!! But it's a name I have loved my entire life, having nothing to do with the city.
