GenEric Says:


Wasn't London Tipton named that to mock Paris Hilton?

SloaneSquare Says:


It's anything but classy on this side of the pond

SloaneSquare Says:


Great city, awfully tacky name to lumber a child with.

lauren.deaton Says:


I think london is a classy name yet still has a fresh interesting sound to it... love it

em Says:


everyone ive "tested" the name with is so delighted - not one weird reaction. i like that its strong, unisex, and has a cool factor to it.

htw Says:


No its sounds just as bad here but other ugly names like peyton are popular so maybe it is a trend?

hannahloulou Says:


I'm from London and I just find the whole idea a bit bizarre, like calling a baby Baltimore, Pittsburgh or Milwaukee or something. It isn't a pretty sound at all, Londoners say "Lun-dun". But perhaps in America it would sound better? I suppose I think the American place names Savannah and Atlanta are acceptable so perhaps I am just being too conservative.

Caroline Says:


I don't like using the name of places for children, but I do like Milan.

Catastroffy Says:


I don't like this name. London for a girl! Really. Londyn could work as a pinch.

Alicia1 Says:


I like place names, I have 2 in my family. This one is nice, just have a feeling it would be too popular

mabespark Says:


I'm actually starting to like it, for both genders.

Guest Says:


I really would like this as a name but it's too common and I know too many.

(I bet a lot of people using it have never even been to London tbh)

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


This name is not even pretty. Most place names work but I can't see the appeal of this one. I first heard it from Suite Life on Deck and I can never shake that association.
