A lot of things change when you have kids, especially your hobbies. A report from the U.S. Travel Association noted that 31 percent of adults traveled with children in 2008, but the numbers dropped in 2012 with only 26 percent of adults traveling with their little ones in tow. I get it — traveling with kids is hard. But your love of travel shouldn’t stop when you become a parent. In fact, it’s something you should pass on to your child by decorating their nursery in vintage maps or gifting them with one of many city-inspired baby names.
With so many incredible places in the world, cities steeped in history and full of culture, it’s no wonder you want your child to be well-traveled, even if they’re just a baby. By exploring the world and seeking out adventure, your kid won’t grow up in a bubble representing who they are. Instead, they’ll have life experiences and memories that will open them up to understand the world around them. They will be grateful for the opportunity and grow up knowing that there is so much more in the world to see than their own space. So why let your love of the world fizzle out while waiting for your kid to be big enough to enjoy a plane ride? Gift them with the travel bug early with one of these 13 city-inspired baby names chosen to enrich your little one with creativity, culture, and class.
