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.

I think this threads great grin

"invader from another forum"?

Bert Olly, Trex and Florette should soon be fighting their way up the name charts, seasonally Quince might make a bid for glory too.

There are gorgeous little twin boys on our road called Utterly and Butterly (Uttie and Buttie as nns).

WildRumpus Mon 14-Jan-13 13:25:20

My fantasy twins would be Kumquat and Kiwi but i'm not sure what middle names would work with those....

atthewelles Mon 14-Jan-13 13:26:56

Wildrumpus How about

Kumquat Coke
and
Kiwi Carrotjuice

If you are after a good study biblical name you can't go far wrong with Ham.

LesBOFerables Mon 14-Jan-13 13:29:02

Kumquat May, of course.

FloatyBeatie Mon 14-Jan-13 13:30:04

Yes, Ham is good and solid. A lad at school has it as a middle name -- His first name is Honeyroast.

atthewelles Mon 14-Jan-13 13:31:49

I love the name ham, but unfortunately our surname is sandwich so we couldn't use it.

Kumquat May grin grin

My neighbours kids are Tropicana and shes just had a little Baby Bel

Just to add a bit of culture to the proceedings.... how about Yeast?

Pasiphae Mon 14-Jan-13 13:33:46

Aubergine sounds better, if you want to go French.

Anjou, Bacon and Herb for a boy.
And maybe Chablis, Arrabiata or Clafoutis for a girl.

Humous and Tzatziki for twins.

Hmmm I like Yeast but I think Candida has more of a Shakesperian feel.

atthewelles Mon 14-Jan-13 13:39:29

I agree Lunatic. Names like Souffle, Raspberry-Ripple and Cheesecake sound really cute on little girls. But what if they grow up to be bank managers or solicitors??

VariousBartimaeus Mon 14-Jan-13 13:41:26

If DS had been a girl he'd have been called Velouté. But we wanted something manly so called him T-Bone with a middle name Steak.

Psammead Mon 14-Jan-13 13:42:34

I've got a little Yeast myself, but I was itching for another, so we're expecting Yoghurtany day now. I think it sounds soothing.

FloatyBeatie Mon 14-Jan-13 13:43:00

Friend's daughter is called Naan. They were going to call her Pitta but thought everyone would assume she was a PITA.

Mouldy Brie and celeriac don't like their names too much, but 2 year old plum is happy.

meddie Mon 14-Jan-13 13:45:27

papaya and pear are the twins but poor old dragon fruit feels a bit hard done by...

atthewelles Mon 14-Jan-13 13:49:08

Do people think the names Beetroot, Kipper and Marmite are a bit mumsy and dated?

LeonieDeSainteVire Mon 14-Jan-13 13:52:53

DD is Harissa, the DSs are Meat and Anchovy. Goes so well with our surname . . .

WildRumpus Mon 14-Jan-13 13:54:39

Marmite is actually quite sweet and retro. If she had a brother he could be Bovril - quite strong and manly...

We have a Mattessons we do. For short we call him Son.
