    Are you saying that you're not keen on place names used as names, London?

    I would have no problem with using those names (except Darwin, this isn't really a first name).
    Adelaide, Victoria and Sydney were all names b4 the places. I wouldn't use Adelaide if I lived in Adelaide and same with Sydney etc.

    All that said, none of the names are to my taste but I see no problem with other ppl using them.

    Victoria I would. It's a nice name.

    The others are awful and I'd not give that name to a pet rock, let alone a living, breathing person.

    We have Adelaide on our list but I just think of it as an older name rather than the state
    Or a city

    i love the name Adelaide and I love Adelaide as I live here, which is why I couldn't use it. I think it would be slightly tacky IMO. But someone living in another state, it wouldn't be tacky at all.

    I wouldn't use any of them, but not because of living in Australia.

    I like the name Victoria, but don't like the inevitable shortened version.

    And I'm not keen on the rest.

    Having said that, I don't think I would name my child after a well known place name, unless it had more of a reputation for the name than the place. I tend to prefer more classic/ traditional sounding names than modern/ contemporary/ different names.
