When I hear someone with a place name, I think it's a little tacky UNLESS the place holds a special meaning for one of the parents... i.e. they honeymooned there, one of them travelled there and was greatly inspired/rested, etc. However, I once asked a woman how she came up with the name Sterling for her daughter, and was told she was conceived there (it's a small town in Scotland, I think). That was a bit more info than I wanted to hear!! lol!

I like seeing place names used as a first name when their is a personal significance with that place. It isn't the end of the world if not. It has been used as a name and is quite similar to other first names. It has a nice sound and is easy to spell and say etc. The sausage association isn't so great.
Personally, I don't love it. I much prefer Sienna and Sierra (even if a little dated).

Carolina-the-place or Carolina-the-name came first. Plus, I think if you use a place that's not very well known as a name, such as Vienna, it's not quite as tacky. In my opinion, part of what makes Paris and London so tacky as names is that they're big cities that invoke that sense of "luxury", similar to names like Chanel and Armani. Ultimately it's a matter of opinion, of course, but I think there definitely are place names that can work as non-tacky baby names and I would say Vienna is one of them.Elena + baby girl on the way, due Feb 2013:
