Are there any names of cities or states that you would consider naming your LO?

I love the name Phoenix for a boy, but since I live in Arizona it wouldn't work since that is the name of our capital.
I also like the name Payson for a girl, but name of a city here too.

What about you?

I love Phoenix, especially as it is a constellation. (Both of my daughters were named after constellations.)

I also like Brooklyn, Sydney, Adelaide, Indiana, Dakota, Kent.

I love Phoenix, but I think of it as a bird more than a city. I mean, I know it's a city, but Arizona isn't the first thing I think about.

I also love:
Vienna
Paris
Adelaide
Venice
Ireland
Dallas
Indiana

The only one I like on a boy is Dallas.

There are some I'd chose. I don't know a lot of them, so I'm sure there are more... but Ireland would probably be my favorite. Sedona would come second.

Dakota is a maybe. I'd actually consider Arizona. Phoenix is okay. Austin

Obviously I'm partial, but there are a few others I'd consider using. When I chose my daughter's name (many, many years ago, when she was just a twinkle in my eye), it had nothing to do with the city, and I rarely think of it as a "place name" unless someone brings it up.

Hi I'm also in Arizona! I actually love a lot of Arizona place names, though I don't like Phoenix or Payson (sorry)!

I do, however, love/like: Bisbee , Sedona, Benson, Chandler, Greer, Greenlee, Heber, Kearny, Winslow!

Non-Arizona place names I like are:

Brea - California
Adelaide - Australia
Georgia - Georgia
Lincoln - Nebraska
Verona - Italy
Sicily - Italy
Vienna - Austria
Kingston - Jamaica

If you think about it there are a ton of common names out there that are also names of cities.

But around my area the cities that are also names include Kingston and Leighton (even though it's pronounced diffrent). I like Leighton when it's pronounced like the actress from gossip girls.

I like the name Sydney a lot and think if I had a boy I'd consider it.
