Can I name my child after a vegetable?

My DH has a list of traditional names he wants to call our child. Things like Mary or Sarah if it's a girl and John or Michael if it's a boy.
I've talked to my friends about it and they all seem to think this is a good idea but I have my own list of names that my DH thinks I got rid of.
What I want to know is; are these names good names for a child? So far I've got: Endive, Guava, Pepper, Radish and Zucchini. I like them because they sound exotic and unique.
What do you think?

That depends. Is your child likely to be a guinea pig?

French Bean?

Radish is an awesome name. Go for it.

I really hope you're kidding. If not, I hope you wait until this crazy hormonal storm you're clearly in the grip of passes, before you attempt to name an innocent child.

I actually like Pepper.

Broccoli is a nice ring to it.

Pepper is nice, but might get confused with Pippa, which is a bit last year.

Chard for a boy, maybe?

Not Pepper. Well not any of them really, but especially not Pepper or more uniquely Peppa.

Some Caleb has a daughter called Papaya I might be wrong
