  • well my son is named Austin but we didn't name him because of the city we just liked the name, and a street was named after me because when the city was naming our street (it didn't have a name) the went door to door down our street and liked the way I spell my name (Robyn) so now there's a Robyn St.

  • I knew a girl named Phoenix. But she lived in New Zealand and I'm pretty sure she wasn't aware that it was also a US city. And I know someone who named their daughted Brooke Lynne. Oh and my best friend growing up, her mom's name was Virginia. I guess she liked it, I never heard her complain! I wanna say that's it..

  • Oh no I lied. I also knew a little boy named Dallas. He was too young to say if he liked it or not! OKay, now that's it :-)

  • My 2 little cousins have names after states.Their mom just liked the names (though she did a weird spelling of Dakota) The girl's name is Montana and the boys name is Dakotha. Also my oldest son's middle name is Dakota because I thought Daniel Dakota sounded good!
