Give your baby son a meaningful name full of Christian significance.

Choosing a name for a baby can be a mighty challenge. You may be inspired to choose one from the long list of worthy canonized saints celebrated by the Church, but you may also want something a little different yet still spiritually meaningful. If you want to offer your son a name that’s steeped in Christian tradition, look to these 10 locations that are of great importance to Christians throughout the world. Millions of pilgrims flock to visit them each year. There will be names that are familiar to you, and a few that you’ll be surprised to see. Regardless, there’s no doubt a worthwhile moniker here to give your baby boy a perfect start in life.
