Popular travel-inspired baby names

Searching for the perfect baby name can be one of the more exciting things to research before your little one gets here. You might have already looked at celebrity baby names or possibly your favorite show (Bridgerton baby names, anyone?) for ideas but if you’re looking for a name that sparks a happy memory then you might consider travel-inspired baby names.

And what’s one thing that can take you back to a magical moment like your honeymoon, proposal or wedding location? The name, of course! Maybe you honeymooned in Sydney because you just had to see the famous opera house. Maybe your partner proposed under the glittering lights of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Or, maybe you had a lovely rustic wedding in Boston. Whatever place calls to your heart might be the place to consider naming your baby after.
