Imagine if you were named after something historic in Rockford. A new trendy boy's name could be after a famous "TOWER" in Chicago. SkyParkSecure

Instead of Double T, maybe he could be Double Symbol or Double Sock Monkey...Doesn't have the same ring, but I like it.

"Travelling to a new destination is always inspiring: after all, you’re getting to experience a whole new culture, see new sights, and sample different cuisines. It makes sense that you might want to commemorate one of your favorite places in the world by naming your child after it." - SkyParkSecure

So here are some examples of babies named after places and things...Let's start with the girls:

So what's the deal with a Chicago landmark that parents are using to name their baby boys?

Watchu Talkin' 'bout Willis??

Ladies and gentlemen welcome "Willis" to the world, as in Willis Tower. I like it, but gonna lie...that is a good name. Thankfully no "The Bean" or Lil Soldier Fields out there...I hope.
