Kim Kardashian has named her new brat "Chicago."
Odd but here are other city names foisted on unsuspecting urchins.

Here are 65 city names American parents gave their babies in 2016:

Memphis (428 boys, 92 girls)

London (345 boys, 2,339 girls)

Brooklyn (68 boys, 5,922 girls)

Paris (80 boys, 1,152 girls)

Houston (285 boys, 10 girls)

Austin (5,334 boys, 116 girls)

Geneva (194 girls)

Juneau (10 girls)

Sydney (46 boys, 2,309 girls)

Siena (475 girls)

Oslo (12 boys)

Camden (3,322 boys, 156 girls)

Vienna (290 girls)

Madrid (five girls)

Trenton (815 boys)

Hudson (6,098 boys, 127 girls)

Verona (22 girls)

Albany (20 girls)

Charleston (64 boys, 154 girls)

Brighton (121 boys, 100 girls)

Phoenix (1,226 boys, 719 girls)

Savannah (5,336 girls)

Florence (246 girls)

Providence (12 girls)

Bristol (15 boys, 585 girls)

Madison (42 boys, 8,982 girls)

Kingston (3,109 boys, 15 girls)

Alexandria (1,460 girls)

Havana (54 girls)

Adelaide (1,227 girls)

Berlin (five boys, 75 girls)

Vegas (five boys)

Odessa (76 girls)

Darby (17 boys, 120 girls)

Sedona (64 girls)

Santiago (3,700 boys, 13 girls)

Miami (18 girls)

Nairobi (21 girls)

Jackson (11,210 boys, 25 girls)

Salem (147 boys, 184 girls)

Orlando (430 boys)

Valencia (112 girls)

Lourdes (99 girls)

Dallas (1218 boys, 479 girls)

Rio (132 boys, 61 girls)

Cairo (266 boys, 16 girls)

Montreal (seven boys)

Olympia (51 girls)

Macon (32 boys)

Raleigh (89 boys, 168 girls)

Rome (142 boys, 16 girls)

Venice (seven boys, 37 girls)

Augusta (seven boys, 25 girls)

Milan (685 boys, 376 girls)

Doha (six girls)

Cheyenne (five boys, 802 girls)

Zurich (five boys)

Dayton (242 boys, 22 girls)

Denver (268 boys, 180 girls)

Richmond (24 boys)

Carmel (seven boys, eight girls)

Cleveland (23 boys)

York (12 boys)

Providence, Bristol, and Kingston are all cities in TI. I don't believe any other state has that many on this list, although I doubt our cities aren't those they thought of when wrecking their children's lives.

I don't see any little Jerusalem or Addis Ababa growing up, though. Would Pyongyang be male or female? I can see a husky boy named Istanbul, but he might be bullied if called by an an Alabama site: Gay Meadows.

It seems that gender-specific names belong to history. Paris is a girl? Hmmmm... Tell that to the Spartans! It coulda prevented the Trojan war!

What state is TI??

Juneau should be a boy's name. Junelle for girls.

RE: my state of NJ - I see "Trenton" is well-represented & "Camden" wildly popular. Don't see anybody naming their kid "Newark" or "Paterson," tho they're equally down-at-the-heels urban centers-- what gives? For a seriously NJ-pop name, why not "Asbury"? [w/"Park" as middle name.]

Chicago? But that doesn't start with a K.
(Or maybe it does the way that the Kardashians spell it.}
Kid should probably be grateful they didn't settle on Kathmandu.

If you name a boy Peru, would a girl be Purell?
