Best Baby Names Inspired by British and Irish Places

34 British and Irish Places That Make Great Baby Names

Some parents get inspiration for their child's name from the place where their little one was conceived, but you can follow their lead with a geographical baby name without needing to have created life in that very place! British and Irish towns, cities, islands, and rivers have inspired many beautiful and extraordinary baby names.
