    The only ones listed on that poll that I like are Rosemary, Olive, and Brandy. I remember Gwenyth Paltrow named her kid Apple and I didn’t like it.

    The candy and drink names sound like stripper names to me! I don’t think I could give my kid one of those names.

    Most of those sound like exotic dancer names to me.

    I voted for the protein names, drink names, and spices names. One drink name I love is Midori.

    I agree w. PP that most of these names sound like stripper names lol.

    Some are ok.. like Rosemary is a classic name. Not my cup of tea, but it’s a heck of a lot better than Kale.. wtf – are people actually naming their kids this?!

    In general I don’t like food names. But names like Rosemary, Olive, Angus and Basil which have a long history of being used as names for people, I am ok with. I have a cousin named Rosemary.

    @AlwaysSunny:  Really?? I’ve never come across it. Odd!! I thought it was a new trendy one like Jayden/Kayden etc.

    I’m down with any and all food names. FI has a cousin named Kale but it’s a bastardization of Kael.

    @allyfally:  There’s a really awesome Japanese violinist named Midori Goto. If you name your daughter that, she will be destined for greatness.

    @AlwaysSunny:  I’ve never heard of the name Kale either! I think maybe it is a regional thing – popular in specific areas.

    @canarydiamond:  I’ve known a Cale and a Kel (not to mention the actor Kel Mitchell.) Same word, just different spellings.

    Most of the spices listed seem normal enough as names.

    Lol, was anyone else thinking OP was talking about naming a food baby, as in after you’ve had too much to eat?? Too funny, and I voted no to all of them. I like more traditional names, plus my children will already have a very different last name. It’s French and zero people pronounce it correctly!

    @canarydiamond:  There was a student in my class named Kale! Not something I would name my child, but it worked for him 🙂
