I like it and I would like to see more.

I’ll hop on tomorrow and get some more typed up. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you want persons related to [name_m]Boston[/name_m] as well?

Yeah I wouldn’t mind at all and I was just looking for names that are from [name_m]Boston[/name_m] but this okay too.

I think many of the people I have are also names related to the buildings, streets, neighborhoods, etc.

It’s almost midnight here so I’ll do this first thing in the morning.

That sounds nice!

Your lists here are amazing, @shells15. I love this approach to honouring a city! Might steal the idea and try to figure out similar names related to places meaningful to my family.

@Luminen Thank you. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: You’re more than welcome to steal the idea. [name_m]Boston[/name_m] just happened to be an important city to me and mine, so I’ve had some time to think about it.
