15 Baby Names Inspired by New York City

The city never sleeps, and now you won’t either!


Hometown love is real, especially if you’re from New York City.  From I <3 NY T-shirts to pizza loyalists, NYC has a devoted fan club of natives and non-natives alike.  If you go hard for the city that never sleeps you might consider giving your son or daughter a NY-inspired name. With historical landmarks to awesome street names to pick from, the options are limitless. Here are our picks for the best baby names inspired by New York City:

  1. Waverly – For your future NYU grad!
  2. Bryant – This sophisticated name is inspired by the Midtown park, also known as Manhattan’s Town Square.
  3. Hudson – This works for a boy or girl and whenever you’re driving down the West Side Highway you can show him or her their river!!!
  4. Delancey – If you love the Lower East Side, this is a perfect pick for your baby.
  5. Carnegie – From music halls, to giant pastrami sandwiches, to your kid, it doesn’t get much more New York than this name.
  6. Brooklyn – Probably the most popular of the bunch, it can also be used for a boy or girl and will definitely give your baby the appropriate street cred.
  7. Clinton -  With ties to Hell’s Kitchen and the Lower East Side this name is quintessential NYC.
  8. Lorimer – True Brooklynites will recognize the significance of this name.
