City Names

One of my grandmother’s friends is named Beaufort, and I think that’s such a beautiful name (named after Beaufort, South [name_f]Carolina[/name_f]). Also, the name would be pronounced Bue-fort, not [name_u]Bo[/name_u]-fort. What do you all think of that name? Does anyone have any other name ideas that are also names of cities?

I like it :slight_smile: Might be a bit bold for a first name so I think I’d consider it more for a middle spot, but then again, maybe that’s just because I’m hearing it for the first time. Either way, it definitely makes for a useable and beautiful choice for those who like place names.

Some of my favourites:


There are a ton of others:


…there are many, many more!

I love place names so much. I like the look of Beaufort, but I would pronounce it like ‘[name_m]Bow[/name_m]-fort’.

Beaufort is interesting!



Yeah, I’m not sure I would name my child that since it is a little bold (like someone stated), but I just thought it was really cute! It would have to be pronounced “bue-ford” though because that’s how you pronounce the city name.

Not crazy about the Bue-fort pr. as for some reason it conjures a more negative southern stereotype for me when thinking of a man with that name?! But I love the meaning. I’d probably stick with the name [name_u]Beau[/name_u]. :slight_smile:

One of my favorite place names I’ve heard used was on a little girl named [name_u]Memphis[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f].

It reminds me of the bully character from [name_m]Phineas[/name_m] and Ferb, idk how his name was spelled but it sounded like that.
