My daughter is named after the punk band not the city. Berlin performs 'Take My Breath Away' in Top Gun with Tom Cruise. I enjoyed the movie hence my daughter's name. (It was either Berlin or Glass Tiger, 'Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)'. Come on!
When people hear our daughter's name, they always say they love it. We consistently hear people say something like, "That is a really unique and pretty sounding name, now I'm surprised I haven't heard it used before." We put the accent on the second syllable (ber-LIN), but there is a small contingent of people that have a tendency to put the accent on the first, as in the name Merlin (MER-lin).
