30 Deliciously Adorable Fruit & Veggie Names for Baby

Hot List 56

baby with fruitWhen it comes to picking a baby name, there is inspiration everywhere -- including what's on our plates. Food. Yes. A delicious place to look for potential names for your little yummy bundle of joy. And in case you didn't already guess, most of these names are a little unusual. So if you're looking for something other than Michael or Jennifer, this may be the list for you. (Note: I still love the names Michael and Jennifer.)

Pea??? REALLY who would do that to their child?!?

Sure most of them would be cute as a nickname, but a legal name.... For a person that is someday going to be an adult and have to tell future employers their name with a straight face... To them I say good luck


Okra, huckleberry, and pinto?Are you effing kidding me?Forget what you're sipping on, more what are you toaken on.

Who the hell would name their child freakin' Okra?! Or Pinto?! Citron? Really?! And there's already a buncha kids named Peaches, unfortunately. Or nicknamed Peaches.

Lots of these are fun - I especially like Anjou and Juniper

I actually know someone who named their son Crispin, I thought it was cool, but I did wonder where it came from.

Maybe for your pet but not a child.

If you're one of those people who call you pets "children," then yes, these are great names for children. Human beings? Not so much.
