Place names that make good boys names

I am not thinking of Paris, Brookyln etc but or DS is named after a small village in the north with a slight spelling change. Any interesting place names you think would work for a boy, don't have to be from this country but not one you need to pronounce with an accent. Awaiting with interest smile

I used to go to mother and toddlers with a woman who named her son Glasgow Mckenzie. It even made the local news.

There are some really good choices there. Really like Brodie, Meryn, Indiana and Denver but not sure DH will agree. 3 of you actually listed DS's name which was a real surprise to me. We just thought it might be nice to follow suit with names.
Have worked with kids all my life so choosing names that don't remind me of (most of)them is tricky.

I also know an Arran, VBisme, wonder if it's the same one?? He was definitely named after the Scottish island so it's not that his parents couldn't spell Aaron (which I would pronounce with a long A, anyway).

DH says that if he ever got cats, he would name them Scratchwood and Tibshelf (after service areas on the M1) <irrelevant>

I know someone with a Sawrey, after a place in the Lakes. Not my cup of tea I'm afraid!

I used to work with a Paris.

DD and I both have (different) middle names of places of significance to us. DD's also has the benefit of being a fairly common girl's name (Hope).

Audierne, Lannilis, Scaer, Lorient, Erquy, Lannion, Morlaix, Iroise?

Scilly grin

My neighbour is called Devon. DD went to school with an Orlando but his father was South American.

All depends on your surname though. If you're a Jones then you might get away with Ripley but not Colombo....

Drastic, wouldn't go for Indiana either if surname was Jones.
Thanks for all the great ideas folks. Like Orlando but prob because I fancy Mr Bloom (not from the allotment!) Will try some of these on DH and see how he feels smile
