Location baby names seem to be a new trend. While some parents choose a baby's name to commemorate the city of conception, their home town, favorite vacation spot or other locality, some families just like location baby names. Here are some of the favorites being used today:

Girl Location Baby Names

  • Paris
  • Montana
  • Alaska
  • Cheyenne
  • Dakota
  • Brooklyn
  • Savannah
  • Georgia

Boy Location Baby Names

  • Dakota
  • Phoenix
  • Texas
  • Jackson
  • Austin
  • Mason
  • Lincoln
  • Branson

Some like Savannah and Georgia are names that go together because of their locality. This could be used for twin baby names.
