Place names like London, Sydney and Brooklyn have always been popular, but these days, parents are exploring new territory. We’ve put together a list of some fresh discoveries:

Camden
This New Jersey staple has been the #1 destination name for celebs in the last three years. Kristin Cavallari, Nick Lachey and Johnathan Schaech all have baby boys named Camden.

Berkeley
Actor Rockmond Dunbar named his daughter after his hometown in 2013. And the meaning of this California city —  “meadow of white birches” — paints a lovely picture.

Tennessee
Reese Witherspoon paid homage to Tennessee Williams and The Volunteer State when she chose it for her son in 2012.

Everest
George Lucas chose this lofty name for his baby girl last year, making Everest the trendy new mountain name (stealing the spotlight from Sierra).

Rio
This fresh alternative to River works for a boy or a girl and has recently been used by Oliver Hudson and Jillian Barberie.

Milan
The Italian fashion capital served as the name inspiration for Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira’s son, Milan Piqué, born in January of 2013.
