Place Names for Boys and Girls



This awesome photo was borrowed from this awesome blog.
I do not normally recommend place names unless you've personally been to that place and it holds sentimental value for you, or your family hails from there.

That being said, here is a long list of places around the world that could work as a first name. Boy and Girl options are mixed together.

Please keep in mind that some places are nicer than others and some places have strong history associated with it.

Do your research carefully before you commit to using any of these names.

It's hard to say sometimes what is a "place" name - to me, if a place is named after a person, then it's not really a place name (because it was already a person's name). I don't really consider Madison a place name, because it's not a city or a country ... but it's hard to know where to draw the line, isn't it???

I like Caspian and Florence best, and I guess you could add Albion or Alban as a place name.

Technically, there is a city called Madison in the state of Wisconsin here in the states. That's probably where that came from. :)
