There are many places to find inspiration for baby boy names, but what about your favorite places in the United States?
I’m always seeing posts from parents looking for baby boy names that aren’t weird, but also aren’t being overused. For whatever reason, it seems to be more difficult to find a boy name to fit those criteria than a girl name.
This had me thinking: what are some other places to look for a boy name?
This list of 14 baby boy names is from cities and regions all over the US. Each name and region is completely different from the next, making each name unique and unusual. Naming your baby after one of your favorite places can be a great story, and a great way to honor different memories you may have!
