It is within the city-defined neighbourhood of ‘Lambton-Baby Point.’ Baby Point is within the proximity of Jane station. The neighbourhood was at one time an Iroquois village. In the 19th century, lawyer James Baby bought the land from the Upper Canada government, which had bought it as part of the Toronto Purchase. The land was developed into the current neighbourhood in the early 20th century. The name is pronounced by locals as “Babby” Point, to rhyme with tabby or cabbie, in an approximation of how James Baby pronounced his surname.
