What SHOULD you have called your baby?

One trend that celebrities parents have jumped on is naming their baby after a place. Names derived after cities and countries include Bronx, Pheonix, Paris and Ireland. Alicia Keys called her baby Egypt. For the record, Egypt is a boy.

Anne Heche through caution into the wind when she gave her son the whole world, by calling him Atlas. I can imagine him getting quite confused later in life when at school, he starts doing Geography as a subject. "Get out your atlas, Atlas...."

There is no limit to the variety you can inflict on your child's moniker when you think about it. Some suggestions that I think would work include Como, Gosford, Albion Park Rail and let's not forget Mornington Peninsula. Middle name suggestions could include amenities such as Service Station, Church, Park and Rest Stop.

Posh and Becks named their son Brooklyn, after the place that he was actually conceived. And if I am going to reflect on this trend and implement it, my son Jack should be called Couch.
If you were to call your first born after the place of conception, What would it be?
