    Me too. I've grown up in London, and I do find it incredibly strange that someone could have it as a name. I don't find it particularly pretty either... What about Londra or Londres (Italian and French versions) or even Londinium or Luandun.

    Hmm, I suppose I feel the same way about the name Dallas since I grew up in Texas. It's interesting how distance gives us a different perspective on place names.

    I don't think he'll go for any of the London variations, unfortunately. His tastes tend to run to the ultra traditional/classic/safe (Sarah, Elizabeth) or the ubiquitous trendy names (Kayley, Madison, etc.) and he gags at anything he deems unusual (even classic names I would have thought would be safe like Eleanor or Charlotte). Frankly, it's a shock to me that he likes London, but I think it's mostly a sentimental attachment to the place.

    Use it in the middle. I think if you've got an attachment to the place and you go back there, it's going to be weird being called London. Plus say she grows up and marries someone with the surname Bridge, she'd have as much of a joke name as North West does. Audrey London would work well, she would have meaning to her name but it wouldn't be awkward.

    I think London is sweet. Baby names should reflect the parents' experiences and values more than those of the rest of the world. London Allegra sounds nice to me.
