10 Delicious Baby Girl Names Inspired By Food

1. Honey

A sweet substance from the hive and a cute name, the only thing that would turn me off using it is Honey Boo Boo!

2. Apple

As I mentioned previously, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin made headlines in 2004 when they named their daughter Apple but when you look at this list, foody names are not that uncommon!

3. Ambrosia

Not just a rice pudding, Ambrosia was actually the name given to the nectar of the gods in Greek mythology. It is not that commonly used but when it is can often be found shortened to Rosie.

4. Brie

Not just a cheese or a character from Desperate Housewives, Brie is becoming a more popular girls name.

5. Clementine

Not just a member of the orange family, it is an adorable first name. It does bring the song “Oh my darlin’ Clementine” to mind though!

6. Ginger

Not uncommonly used in Ireland and the UK, although girls with this name are usually named after Ginger Rogers not the root vegetable!

7. Olive

A popular one in Ireland, perhaps more so in previous generations. Olives are not just for pasta and martinis!

8. Rosemary

This name has fallen in popularity in recent years. In our mother’s generation, it was used quite often and is commonly seen shortened to Rose or Rosie.

9. Saffron

A spice which originated in India and is commonly used in curries, it is also a very cute name!

10. Coco

Related to the bean and the drink, Coco is quite a popular name and best known from the designer Coco Chanel. Courtney Cox also used it to name her daughter.
