So maybe you're not into the name "North" or "Saint" but you want a cool, hip, meaningful name for your new little bundle of joy!

Have you considered naming your babe after the town you grew up in?  Or the back road he or she was conceived on?  Or maybe you're just full of pride for the Capital Region and you want to call Jr. something that reminds you of "home"!

Here is a list I came up with for you of baby names inspired by our beautiful listening area!

Naming a child is seriously one of the hardest and most important decisions you'll ever make!  So, all kidding (see what I did there) aside, consider some of these cool names!
