51 City-based Nonbinary Names

If you are like me after watching the Money Heist on Netflix, you might think naming a baby after a city is such a cool idea. In fact, even before the series, I named my daughter after the city where my wife and I first traveled to.  

Besides, I have personally met a guy and a girl named Sydney in different places. Some names like London might be more commonly found on a girl. But, who knows. This unisex everything is becoming a trend. 

So, let’s check out some of the cities [1][2] that might be good ideas for naming your baby.
