Selecting a name for your tiny baby can be a big decision; it is one that you want to get right.

But what should you call them? You could give them a traditional-sounding moniker, like Mummy Diaries star Samantha Faiers and her boyfriend Paul Knightley who have children named Rosie and Paul.

Or you could choose something wondrously original like Emmerdale couple Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden who have Buster, Bowie Grey and now baby Ace Gene.

However, since It feels like travel restrictions have been in place for an eternity, you could name your child after a location instead.

We love this idea, as there are many pretty place names, and it could also give the name extra importance if you chose a favourite city or a memorable place.
