    I think it gets too much when it's a country, I would never use England, Holland (though I do admit to crushing on this one), America, Ireland, China etc etc. I love Sydney for a boy, I've never been there but I like the sound and find Australia to be an intruiging place which I've wanted to visit since I was a tiny girl. Generally though I don't like most place-names, I find them too tacky.
    Current Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith

    I don't mind most place names. Most names are place names anyways (eg: Ada, Michigan; Emily. Minnesota; Jackson, Michigan, etc). It would be pretty weird if there was a girl named Indiana that lived there though.
    I know a pair of twins in their mid-20s who are named Boston and Hudson. At first I found this tacky, but then their siter told me that their mom had grown up in New York and their dad was from Massachusetts. They lived in Michigan so I thought this was a very cool way to honor their hometowns.

    I have briefly flirted with some local river names like Columbia or Willamette but I think they are a bit much.

    I generally dislike place names... However wrongly, I tend to assume that any unusual place name is probably where the child was conceived... which is kind of TMI for a name. I know girls named Virginia, Savannah, Catalina, Dakota, Madison, Sienna, and Asia. The wave of kids with names like Paris, Brooklyn, London, etc. is just way too much for me though.
