    I loved the name Adelaide and wanted to use it for DD (we dont live in Adelaide) but i did fear people would think it was trashy

    I love Adelaide, like Sydney (but would never use it) and if I liked the name Victoria enough I would use it (even though I'm from Vic).

    I'm put off using the name Adelaide because it is an Australian city...I will likely use a very similar name for this bub if I'm right in thinking its a girl.

    I personally wouldn't call my children those names but don't see any problem with using them or why a child would be picked on for the name.

    Seeing as the state/city was originally named after Queen Victoria and Queen Adelaide, I don't have a problem with it. They're such feminine classic names as well!!!

    I don't think children get teased too often because their name is a Capital city or state name as well, unless that is where they live. Children are exposed to a fairly large repertoire of names now as Australia becomes even more multicultural.
    Would I use them? No, but not because of being an Australian, more to do with my taste in names, I also wouldn't name my children Paris, Dakota, Brooklyn, Kansas, London, or even Savannah. Not because they are place names either and not because I don't personally like them, they just aren't names I would consider ever using myself.

    If I liked them (I've chosen other names). I know 2 Adelaides (including a very cute little one) and have met plenty of Victorias. I doubt kid would really care.

    Someone I know named their son Tasman.

    In answer to the OP, I would use those names no problems, except maybe Darwin.
