Baby names inspired by castles and palaces

User Rating: / 0

Castles across the world hide secrets and epic stories within their walls. Let some of this history shine through as you seek the perfect baby name for your wee prince or princess. Take a trip with us around the world as we visit the world's best-named castles and palaces.

It's impossible not to be awestruck when viewing an actual, real life castle. After reading about them in story books and seeing them in movies, our imaginations take over. While real castles don't contain dragons and princesses, their histories can be just as fascinating. Think back on past vacations or plan future ones as you decide if a castle name is right for your little knight in shining armor. Here are some of our favorites.

Baby names inspired by castles of Ireland

Ireland earned its own section because of how gorgeous these names are. How lovely would it be to name an entire sibling set after Irish castles and take them on a journey one day? Our favorite is Desmond, shortened to the romantic Desi or the rebellious Dez.
