Ever since a French court聽went and banned Nutella as a baby name for we guess an appropriate reason, we鈥檝e聽been on a food baby name binge (okay, so maybe we鈥檙e always all about聽baby names鈥). To deter fellow food lovers from giving their newborns a delicious name that could get taken off the menu, we rounded up our fave foodcentric words that have extended themselves to the naming department. Bon app茅tit!

Girl Names

Live 8 London - Stage

1. Apple: It鈥檚 been a while since the GOOP聽creator shocked the world with this one, likely the most popular of the baby name food group. While we鈥檙e kind of into it now, we don鈥檛 suggest聽going with聽Granny Smith or Honeycrisp for your newborn.

2. Anjou: This European聽pear would make a sweet, yet exotic name for your little gal.

3. Brandy: If you give your daughter this spiked bev聽name, you should probably be expecting a living room performance of 鈥淭he Boy is Mine鈥 by the age of 10 (errrr, hopefully聽15鈥?).


4.聽Hazel: This nutty name has become pretty popular over the years as Julia Roberts and cute 鈥榬ents John Krasinski and Emily Blunt gave聽it to their girls. Last year it probably boomed thanks to聽the title character in The Fault in Our Stars.

5. Brie: Although the cheese may stink, give this one to your new girl and she鈥檒l be cute for reasons other than her looks.


6.聽Nori: North鈥檚 nickname is a type of seaweed. Leave it to Kim K to have her daughter making multiple lists (cartography聽+ culinary) without her little diva even lifting a finger.

7. Clementine: With a name like this, fingers crossed your baby girl will be just as sweet as her namesake.


8. Olive: Not only did Drew Barrymore give聽her little cutie this moniker, but so did funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife Isla Fisher.

9. Ginger: Spice up your daughter鈥檚 life with this one. Zig-a-zig-ah!


10. Reese: This one is totally unisex, and just like the chocolate and peanut butter indulgence, it works for everyone.

11. Maple: Not to get sappy, but we think this one is actually super sweet ;)

12. Poppy: We instantly love any baked good covered in these seeds, so naturally we鈥檙e gonna be into this precious one.

Boy Names


13. Barack: Yes, Mr. President鈥檚 name is a Hungarian brandy made from apricots. The more you know.

14. Alfredo: Our fave noodle also makes a great name for a boy.

15. Benedict: Fan of brunch? This one鈥檚 for your little guy.

16. Berry: It would be kind of odd to go with strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, etc. But Berry solo just sounds so smooth.

17. Caesar:聽The not-so-healthy, but oh-so-good salad makes for a powerful name.

18. Colby: We鈥檝e got a middle name suggestion for this cheesy one: Jack ;)

19. Dom: A name totally worth popping bottles over.

20. Graham: The delicious cracker lends itself to being a handsome-sounding boy鈥檚 name.

21. Napoleon: Watch out for this namesakes鈥 complex鈥

Do any of these names sound delicious enough for your baby? Let us know in the comments.聽
