The new Kardasians baby name... bc Kenye is frm there... Can they just pick normal names that arent egocentric to themselves? jfc

addition:

yes many people have names that derive from cities that are well known. so i dont have to repeat myself, those names were almost all derived from people who founded them or made an impact. they were names before they were names of cities. particularly last names.

chicago wasnt. its derived from a native american word that means wild onion.

i am sorry i would never name my kid that referenced onion lmfao

I'm not a fan of either of them, but how many other names originate from places? Plenty.

Who cares? I do not see any difference between the name Chicago and those who have another city name. For example; Brooklyn, Madison, Dallas, Houston, etc.

I immediately thought of a spin-off of the NBC Dick Wolf Chicago PD/Chicago Fire/Chicago Med shows. It made me giggle and now I'll always think of that, lol.



There's a lot names based on places. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Personally, I love the name Brookelynn. 🤷

as i mentioned before, most of the names that are now well known cities derived from names first and those places were named after the founders.

they named their kid a name that means wild onion >.< ya.....

A lot of places in the Midwest basically kept their native names. Chicago is one of them. Wikipedia says the name means “garlic”, because a lot used to grow there, lol.
