You went to school here, got engaged with the Ohio River as your backdrop, and now, are ready to raise a family in one of the country's most livable cities

Doulas of Cincinnati are experts on all things baby, and this is especially true for bundles of joy born in the City of Seven Hills.

If you are looking for a baby name that reflects your Porkopolis pride, Doulas of Cincinnati has got you covered. Read on for ten of our favorite names that are "so Cincinnati."

Best Cincinnati Doula
  1. Ludlow - Although a bit heavy on the tongue, Ludlow is an English name to consider if your list also includes Landon or Declan. It also happens to be the name of one of the founders of the Queen City.

  2. Harriet - Author of the best-selling book Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe lived with her family in Cincinnati for nearly 20 years.

  3. Rosemary - Classic names have made a comeback and Rosemary is a lovely tribute to beloved entertainer Rosemary Clooney, who got her start in Cincinnati. (Visiting Rosemany Clooney's home is a nice day trip out of the city.)

  4. Foster - Known as "the father of American music," Stephen Foster wrote some of his songs while living in Cincinnati. (It is prudent to mention that his music does not come free of controversy.)

  5. Crosley - Former owner of the Cincinnati Reds, Powel Crosley, Jr., was a pioneer in radio and broadcasting.

  6. Othneil - An alternative to Nathaniel, Othneil is a nod to former Ohio Governor Othneil Looker, whose house is a historic site in Harrison.

  7. Roland - You might want to thank Roland Wank, one of the designers of Union Terminal, for the days of fun spent at the Children's Museum.

  8. Oxley - Another offbeat "O" name, Oxley pays homage to Dr. Lucy Oxley, the first African American woman to earn a medical degree from the University of Cincinnati.

  9. Oscar - Oscar is regal, yet approachable. Sports fans will appreciate the link to one fo the greatest basketball players of all time, The Big O, Oscar Robertson, who played for both UC and the Cincinnati Royals.

  10. Lillian - Lillian Wald spent her early life in Cincinnati. A public health advocate and nurse, Lillian helped to form the Women's Trade Union League and Children's Bureau. She also helped to found the NAACP.
