I'm so sorry, I work in a school district and I'm being jerky tonight. City and state first names drive me BATTY!! Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Austin, Nevada, Montana, Dakota, Denver, Columbia, Bristol, Philly, Jasper, my dear nephew, London, the list goes on and on. But country names don't seem to bother me: Asia, America, England, etc.

I haven't heard of Boston as a person's name. I think I'm OK with them.

Dakota, Dallas, Montana just remind me of stripper names. Asia too.

You don't care about England but Jasper bothers you? That's weird.
I don't care what people name their kids and I wouldn't ever make them feel stupid for doing it. Obviously they like it, which is why they chose it.

Our last name is a city. I really like Savannah for a girls name, but two city names is full on porn star.

 One of my 4 children shares their name with a city but it's also a last name and not one people associate as a city name.

I'm not a fan of Nevada, Arizona or Alaska as names.

 There is an older man in our town and his whole family, including his own grown children, all the way back to his great-grandmother, have city/town names. It is really neat to sit and talk to him and hear all the names...Folks can get very creative.
