You might not know it but it was on this date in 1587 that Virginia Dare was born – becoming the first English child to be born in the “New World” of America. She was named for the territory of Virginia where she was born, which got us thinking about all of the different names we see that are taken from place names around the world.
We’ve printed names inspired by countries and states, counties and capitals, and cities and towns and, following a quick look through the archives, we’ve found that the following have been the most popular place-based names amongst our customers over the last year:
Georgia ~ Sebastian ~ Logan ~ Florence ~ Austin ~ Harley ~ Lydia ~ Eden
Brandon ~ Iona ~ Ashton ~ India ~ Hudson ~ Israel ~ Rio ~ Jordan ~ Sydney
Devon ~ Chelsea ~ Chester ~ Orlando ~ Brooklyn ~ Milan ~ Paris ~ Phoenix
Troy ~ Adelaide ~ Camden ~ Delphi ~ Elwood ~ Indiana ~ Oakley ~ Alba ~ Avalon
Dakota ~ Henley ~ Preston ~ Virginia ~ Dakota ~ Denver ~ Harlow ~ Alabama
Alaska ~ Alban ~ Alexandria ~ Atticus ~ Bentley ~ Brittany ~ Cairo ~ Crewe
Dallas ~ Dudley ~ Olympia ~ Rosslyn ~ Sahara ~ Texas ~ Tuscany ~ York
