City baby names, naming your baby after a city, is actually fairly popular. Some families do it to celebrate a connection with the place (location) that a baby is born, the place where the couple met, married, fell in love, or even the place of conception. Other people simply like the name. In fact, some of the names on this list are probably rarely thought of as city names anymore when it comes to naming your baby.
