Why would you want to name your kid after a city? Seriously.

Hello, my name is Berlin. I hated it at first but most people find it pretty unique and stuff. After a while, you grow to appreciate it.

I am pregnant and have decided on the name Berlin. I heard it somewhere and it has stuck- I love it. I didn't think past the fact I really liked it.

My daughter's name is Berlynn. We went with an alternate spelling just to make the name feel more our own. Her father & I get a great deal of compliments on her name. It actually has turned some heads with fascination on the reason behind her name, how unique it is & how it just totally fits her to a tee! I find the negative comments interesting. The city does bear a sad time in history, but I do remember a great deal of hope when the wall came down. My daughter was born the year of the 25th anniversary of the wall coming down, & I like the idea that her name bears the hope so many felt 25 years prior to her being born. I also just love the sound of the name. And I love it in both English & German. To those who say it's ugly; I will say that it's not a soft & dainty name, by any means. But I want my daughter to grown up with a strong sense of self, a force to be reckoned with, a strong woman one day & I think the name Berlynn sounds strong, yet feminine. And believe me, my daughter fits her name, she's strong & feisty, yet kind, caring & sweet. My nickname for her is Little Bear, because when I was pregnant, I read that the name Berlin traced back to meaning Bear. Overall, I adore the name for a girl & I hope it remains unique.

I am 22 years old and my name has been Berlin Marie W. since birth. I am not German at all. I am native American from South Dakota and my father was stationed in Berlin when he was younger and fell in love with the city, hence him naming me Berlin. I can say it's an extremely unique name to have, and it's a definite conversation starter. If you're a traveler, good luck finding the name on anything unless is in the obvious city of Berlin. There will be taunting, most often east Berlin or west Berlin or the famous Berlin wall, which the child will hear a billion times even into adulthood. And yeah, I was a chubby little kid and "burly Berlin" is not clever at all, they called me "Big Ber" it doesn't bother me anymore, I just mostly get teased for my initials, which if you haven't figured it out, they are B.M.W. and people would make it an acronym for "Big Manly Woman" but I digress. It's a bad name at times, but it's my name and I think it's a great name and I promise no matter if it's taunting or complimenting, people will never forget they met "a girl (or boy) named Berlin.

I named my Daughter Berlin and she gets compliments all of the time about how beautiful the name is.
I think the negative comments on this board are so funny. We live in a big world, don't be so small.

My daughter is named Berlin after Rhona Mitra in "The Life of David Gale." She is beautiful and charismatic, just like her name and its origin. Truly.

Whatever a parent names their child is special to them and has meaning to them.
No matter what a name is, some bully will find a way to make fun of it.

Name popularity changes from generations, cultures, etc. I named my daughter London because a song came on every time I looked at her ultrasound picture. The song started off as “Here is London, giddy London” and it just seemed to fit. My friends in the UK adore her.

Now I am expecting a daughter named Berlin…. And my family is from the East side of Berlin, Germany. So your opinion is just "your" opinion. Don't speak for all of Europe.

Heard this name the other day while shopping and I thought "What a weird name to call a child" then the most cutest little girl came running down the aisle and it really suited her and now I'm starting to slightly fall in love with the name.

Interesting how this is listed as feminine but its only recorded use in the US is as a masculine name. Personally, I think it's extremely inconsiderate to name your child Berlin, thousands of people's lives were torn apart by the Berlin Wall. Just because it ends in -lin doesn't mean it's a name, which is something I think people have forgotten these days. This is just not a name. Sorry folks.

The name has been reported to mean "borderline" (likely due to the city). It has also been reported to mean "swamp or marsh."

I think this is a beautiful name. I don't see it as similar to naming a child something like Amsterdam or Tokyo. I see it as closer to the equivalent of naming a child Brooklyn or London. There are many places that are also names that are very beautiful. Not everyone likes place names, but I do, and this is one that I really like. It is also a unisex name, but I prefer it on a girl. :)

I prefer the similar name Berlinde, which I learned about from the Belgian artist Berlinde de Bruyckere.

Horrible name. Doesn't even sound feminine.

Why would anyone want to call his daughter Berlin? It's ridiculous. It's like calling your daughter Amsterdam, New York or Toronto. Just, why?!

Maybe because they like the name! It has a nice sound. To each his own. :)

This name is just plain ridiculous. Germans don't name their daughters (or sons) Berlin. It's quite a trashy and stupid name, and Berlin is not exactly the nicest city in the world.

It's weird to say that it sounds ugly in Europe. As if European is a language. All other city names like Arizona, Phoenix, Paris etc. are becoming quite popular in Europe, so why not Berlin? I'm Dutch, and I think it's a very pretty name. I would never use it though, because I don't like the city.

The name sounds ridiculous in Europe and ugly in English. If a girl named Berlin turns up obese, she'll probably be called ''burly Berlin''.

Aside from the city of Berlin in Germany there is a small down in southern New Jersey that is also called Berlin. Before bearing its present name the town was called Long-a-coming.
