Someone in my twin group named their twins Indiana and Lilah.. Would you ever name your kid after a state?

Georgia isn't bad. I don't think Arizona is too bad either. Though personally, no I wouldn't name my kid after a state.

It's not a state but I had a friend with twin girls and she named them Russia Hope and London Faith I thought it was kind of different and cute but I probably wouldn't name my kid Russia but London isn't bad

I have a couple friends who are HUGE ohio fans, so maybe just maybe!

OP: no I could not name my child after a state!

I live in Canada, so it may not be the same for me...but I would consider using a couple of state names.

As in Georgia, Carolina, and possibly Nevada.

I love Indiana Jones.

Other usable state names:

Georgia (though I would probably use Georgiana as the full name)
Louisiana (nickname Louise/Louisa. My grandmother is from Louisiana and Louise is her middle name)

I would use Indiana, its no different than Georgia and Carolina to me. I wouldnt use a state like Utah for a name.
