Take a little inspiration for your newborn from the hometown of some prominant holy people.

In Catholic families it is a long tradition to name children after particular saints. Today it is also popular to name children after particular locations. If you are drawn to the latter but want to bring a spiritual meaning to your child’s name, consider selecting the birthplace of a favorite saint. Fortunately, there are a number of saints who were born in towns that would make lovely names for a newborn daughter. So if you’re in need of a little inspiration, have a look at these place names that would be beautiful options for any baby girl.
