Finding Unique Baby Names

If you’re the kind of person who thinks about baby names at the most random times, then you can appreciate my mini obsession. I am a sucker for unique baby names, and will get inspiration from the most unlikely of sources. For example, a globe.

I scan the world’s countries and cities looking for potential baby names. I’ve come up with quite a few good ones…. Cairo is one of my favorites. Also topping the list is Parma (city in Italy) and Celaya (city in Mexico).

I do believe that map-scanning is a great way to find a baby name. However, it’s important not to get carried away. It would be quite unfortunate for a baby to end up with a food-sounding name like Chile, Turkey or Hungary. There are thousands of cities and countries that have no business in a baby book. Keep it unique, but not odd!

Some popular baby name websites that might be able to help are:, the social security administration, yeah baby and baby zone.
