Oh, baby!

Words: Jen Kohle and Aminah Syed

Our writers, Jen and Aminah, have serendipitously found themselves searching for baby names yet again. While both went for traditional names like John and Alexander with their first-born shortly after writing this original article, any Alberta-esque name could happen this summer (times two!). 

Are you expecting a baby? Are you struggling to find a name that you, your significant other, and Alberta’s early settlers can agree on?

Search no more. Here is a list of Alberta towns, municipalities, lakes, rivers, peaks, and ranges that would make great baby names, as gathered by ATB staffers (and soon-to-be moms) Aminah Syed and Jen Kohle.
