I've really coming to love the name Memphis for a girl. Is that too weird? I honestly think I would consider using it in the future!

 

I've come up with a few combos, can't decide between them! Let me know what you think! Additional suggestions and opinions are welcome! :)

 

Memphis Leah

Memphis Ava

Memphis Hayleigh

Memphis Daisy

Memphis Layla

Memphis Hannah

Memphis Lana

 

Also, what are some of your favorite "place" names??

I think Memphis is cute, though I like it on a boy too. I can see it on a girl as well because I have a friend whose nickname is Mem (though it's not related to her name).

 

I really like Memphis Leah and Memphis Hannah, probably because the middle names both end in 'a', which feminizes the unisex Memphis nicely.

 

Some others, just in case:

Memphis Emma (though the M's clash somewhat)

Memphis Ivy (this one's really cute)

Memphis Amelia

Memphis Abigail

Memphis Olivia

Memphis Nora(h)

Memphis Harper

Memphis Emily

 

I usually don't go for such common names, but with an uncommon name it might go well.

 

As for my favorite place names, I like Caspian, Dayton, Hudson, and Georgia, though I don't think that I would use any of them. I like Henrietta also, and though it's origin is a feminization of Henry there's actually a place near my hometown by that name.

Jenna- Do you live in Oklahoma? (You don't have to answer if you think that's too private, its just I do and I know there's a town named Henrietta here)

Memphis isn't really my style, but if you like it I'm not going to deter you from that. I like Memphis Ava and Memphis Hannah from your list.

Other suggestions:
Memphis Anastasia
Memphis Rose
Memphis Ariana
Memphis Kate

A place name I've really begun to like, mostly as a guilty pleasure, for a girl is Athens. I love the country Greece, but Greece would make a terrible name, lol!

I absolutely love Memphis, though I do prefer it on a boy.

 

Memphis Ava is nice! Memphis Juliet, Memphis Eleanor, Memphis Eve, Memphis Ruth?

I actually live up in the New England area, but it's interesting that there's a Henrietta in Oklahoma too.

There's a Henrietta in New York, one in Texas, and a Henryetta in Oklahoma.  :P  NY's is by far the nicest.
