I found inspiration for choosing baby names by looking in my fridge.

Chardonnay, Champagne and Stella jumped out at me right away though they may be a little European for some.

Olive is a good old fashioned sounding name that we don't hear much these days, well not since On The Buses finished.

The cooling fruit gave us a number of really trendy names, Peaches, Mango, Apples etc but these aren't to everybody's tastes.

The one I eventually chose for my daughter was Danone, a nice healthy sounding name and funnily enough we fed her with plenty of yoghurt during her formative years.
It's a real shame she's now a bit on the fat side but your shape can't always reflect your name, though my teenage son Pizza probably wouldn't have agreed.

Still loving this thread grin.

Still can't add anything else to it as my little only post was ignored sad

How about Rucola for a girl? German for rocket (the veg).

Dh suggested Truvia, my Ucle Ben agreed, but dh's Aunt Bessy said it was too saccharine, I quite liked that so we are going with Sachet

We thought EVOO might be a nice change from the commonplace Evie.

For a boy we're tossing up between Bruschetta and Benecol.

Oh no, Brie is far too common now sad. We went with Quorn for a boy although I thought Vodka has a nice ring to it, and Gorgonzola grin

I have to say we went Retro when choosing our two DD's names, Angel Deelite and Marie-rose sauce, I always loved the 70's.......

Oh yes - my French nephew and niece got 70's inspired names: Fondue and Vol au Vent. Their mum liked Coq au Vin and Vinaigrette but in the end decided they were a bit fussy.

Does anyone like Canderel? I thought Candi/Candy for a nm but thought it may sounds a bit sickly...

I know a D'Cath Costa. A little underwhelming but pleasant enough.

I have actually met a small Riocca (yes, spelled like that, I had to ask) at a children's party once. I know an Olive too, and she is only about 7 or so now. She was my sister's neice until the divorce iyswim. There are lots of Olivias, but Olive is just that leetle bit different...
(Both true btw grin)

My new DD to be is going to be Brandy Butter.

WildRumpus Sun 20-Jan-13 13:54:37

Oh Brandy Butter is lovely - especially for a Christmas Baby. My neighbour's little girl is Clotted Cream (nn Clottie) but I much prefer Brandy Butter.

I taught a child named Dijon. Honestly!!!

Sidge Mon 21-Jan-13 21:20:40

I went with Beansprout for DD1, then Frube for DD2.

By the time I had DD3 my fridge didn't inspire me so I went with the medicine cupboard - she's Lanacane.

I love the fact there are no other kids with their names at school.

I've been shopping. I can now offer Pak Choi and Pakora, twins grin

I don't need to look, just open the fridge and call the baby Smelly grin
