Patriotism in naming children (only for those who understand Arabic and/or know things about Syria)

I think if there is a Syrian who is as patriot as Hovhannes Shiraz and he decides to name his children after the names of Syrian cities it'll go like this:

Damascus - boy
Aleppo - boy
Hama - girl
Homs - one should think before giving that name
Latakia - girl
Daraa - girl
Hasaka - girl
Raqqa - girl
Tartus - boy
Idlib - one should think TWICE before giving that name, SPECIALLY TO A BOY
Suwayda - girl
Qunaitira - girl
Afrin - the guy has Kurdish blood in his veins
Haffa - it's in Homs province so let's pass this one too
Mukharram - Homs
Rastan - could we go faster on these "Homs"-i cities
Safira - a pretty girl from Aleppo
Qamishly - it's a She but I wouldn't marry her...
Qutayfa, Nabk, Darayya, Duma - 4 beautiful sisters from the capital
Ariha - even though it has an a in the end but it's still a boy (coz it's in Idlib)
Suqailabia - are you serious???you want to call her by that name??
Thawra - she'll be the head of the Ba'ath Party in her school
A'zaz - Afrin's Brother
Banyas - a charming lady from the seashore
Duraykish - nop
Jable - they'll fool her around in school by calling her JadBe
Meharde - a nice girl
Qerdaha - SHE'S THE BOSS
Palmyra - this is a name I'd go out for a date with
Safita - she's nice

P.S. I should still mention that I love this country and I'm proud of being a citizen even though I wouldn't live there.. and if I make this joke it's only because I adore the smell of it's soil
