But if you're looking for an exotic place name that isn't quite so high on the popularity list, consider taking your globe for a whirl and finding some name inspiration there.
Here are some of my favorite worldly names:
I love India as a baby name—it'd be on my short name for a little girl, with its melodious sound, exotic flavor and its Gone With the Wind ties. It's pretty darned popular in the UK, but still not-so-common here.
More country baby names:
George Lucas just picked Everest of the tallest mountain in the world for his daughter, but I'd love to see this on a boy instead!
More place baby name picks:
The Rocky Mountain getaway (named for the elegant tree), Aspen works beautifully as a boy's name.
More city baby name picks:
Big Sky country makes for a beautiful baby name. Montana is the Spanish word for "mountain."
