Question of the day.

Have you ever known anyone who named their child after a place?

My answer:

I must have known some name nerds whodid that, I am sure, but I can’t recall anyone at the moment. In real life I don’t know anyone who would do this, because in Poland it’s still rather rare to give children geographic names, it wasn’t allowed for years and I guess it’s one of those kinds of abstractive names for our nation. There are names like Karolina, Florencja, Wirginia, but they are names in the first place, only after they’ve become names, they were used for a place, so it’s more normal, and no one calls their daughter Karolina after South or North Carolina in the US, or Florencja because they had a nice holiday in Florence, although Florencja is a very very rare name.

How about you? Would you yourself consider giving your child a place name? Which? ­čÖé
