15 Amazing Fruit Baby Names

1. Apple

Apple is the first fruit that comes to mind when we talk about fruits, or indeed, fruit names. 27 babies were named Apple in the year 2013, in Texas and California. And the Big Apple produced five baby Apples in the year 2010. But a surprising fact is that Washington, the largest apple producing state in the US, doesn’t have even a single child named Apple.

2. Peach/Peaches

This sweet fruit reminds us of all those lovely desserts. Unlike most fruit inspired names, Peaches has been in for a long time. It was previously reserved for showgirls. Peaches was also the name of a punk and glam rock musician. She was born Merril Beth Nisker but renamed herself after the release of the song “Four Women” by Nina Simone. Then there is Princess Peach from Mario too.

It also suggests an outdoorsy and nature loving childhood. Berry would also make a great nickname for monikers like Huckleberry, Strawberry and so on.

4. Clementine

Clementine is a bit old-fashioned name and recalls the song “My Darling Clementine”, but is very familiar with traditional parents. Clementine ranked 379 in 2013 and 253 in 2014. Actor Ethan Hawke, model Claudia Schiffer, and actress Cybil Shepherd, all have babies named Clementine. And honestly speaking, Clementine is the only one that sounds more like a name than fruit. Clementine Paddleford, the food writer for the New York Herald Tribune and a pilot, is one of the most popular namesakes.

Known for its sweet syrup and hearty strength, Plum represents excellent traits for a young lady. Plum is an exotic, yet familiar baby name, thanks to Victoria Sykes.

It also makes an unusual middle name.

7. Quince

Quince is an intriguing unisex name. It has appeared in several Greek mythologies, including tales of Atlanta, Paris and Aphrodite. It is said that 913 people are named Quince in the United States, and there are high possibilities that the numbers will increase in the future.
