Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.

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.

Don't forget Flora.

Marmite, Chutney and Calpol are the ones that stand out in my fridge. I draw the line at calling new dd when she arrives "Leftoverchicken"

Well done you for having 3 different alcoholic beverages in your fridge. (Ive been a loooong time pregnant, sigh)

For those Scandinavian roots you can't beat Lurpack.

Dairylea is quite sweet, though I prefer the Dairee-Leigh spelling.

I bet there are some Kerry Golds out there.

Never mind 'in' the fridge. What about Smeg?

We did actually consider Kerrygold but we know somebody who called their child Margarine so we didn't want them to think we had copied them.

And they would be end up getting the old joke about 'spreading easily'.
But you don't want that for your daughter.

Feta-Brie has that nice European feel. As does Hellman.

A name guaranteed to have your daughter desperate to namechange would be Innocent.

Cambozola has a nice ring to it. And Juicy Bits .....hmm

RightsaidFreud Mon 14-Jan-13 11:51:41

Philadelphia and wasabi are standing out for me.

We were considering Hoi-Sin and Soya, but neither of us are of Asian ancestry so people might think these would be silly names to give our chilren.

We will probably go for something more traditional like Ketchup or Relish.

Raclette in my fridge here in France, perfect for a girl, her brother would be Roquefort...

I love the name Brie, but wondered if it's too popular? Would Camembert be too different?

MsIngaFewmarbles Mon 14-Jan-13 12:02:38

Asidophillus sounds sweet, perhaps a little pretentious

fuzzysnout Mon 14-Jan-13 12:04:00

My DD is called Cath edralcity.

bonceaswell Mon 14-Jan-13 12:04:31

Atthewelles, make sure she doesn't get nicknamed 'Gentleman's Relish'. That would be very unfortunate.

poppydaisy Mon 14-Jan-13 12:04:52

From my kitchen cubboard I can offer Milo (choc drink), dried Rosemary and Clementines. We've also got a lot of Felix cat food.

Or how about Banana, Lasagne or Brie - they have a nice ring to them grin

atthewelles Mon 14-Jan-13 12:07:58

Gosh, good thinking bonceaswell. Her father wouldn't be at all happy with that. Maybe we should go with Tartare, although that sounds a bit french and DH has already rejected Mayonnaise as being a bit pretentious. However, Salad-Cream wouldn't really go with our surname.

bonceaswell Mon 14-Jan-13 12:08:58

Turkey breast and Lazy Garlic - my two darling daughters

Harvey's is a dairy, and juice company here in Western Australia.

atthewelles Mon 14-Jan-13 12:10:16

My friend called her twins Ginger and Lettuce. Gorgeous names.

bananaramma Mon 14-Jan-13 12:11:45

How about Clover?

CaseyShraeger Mon 14-Jan-13 12:12:02

Chipolata, Chip for short. Or do you think she'd be teased at school because Chip in the ORT books is a boy?
