9 flavors of food baby names for the little gourmet – Click Baby Names

Craving that perfect name?

If you’re a foodie, then you may want to consider naming your new arrival after one of your favorite dishes… or maybe during your pregnancy you craved one particular food, and you think that name may be a delicious fit for your baby.

No matter what your reason, there are tons of wonderful, food-inspired baby names — or nicknames — with which to gift your child. Here’s a tasty selection!

Love citrus, but Orange and Tangerine just aren’t doing it for you? Consider instead Clementine — the name of choice of celebs like Ethan Hawke, Claudia Schiffer and Rachel Griffiths.

If it’s a unisex name you seek, Senna, Basil, Curry and Sage are all wonderfully aromatic names for little girls or boys. And for boys, there’s always Herb.

Another idea: Name him or her for the region of Italy for which Parmesan cheese is named: Parma.

Then, for your little boy, there is Dom (Champagne), Ale, Bud, Miller, Harvey (as in Wallbanger) or Rob and Roy. Maybe you can drink your name of choice in a toast after your little one arrives to seal the deal.

Shop around for the perfect name
If you need more inspiration, then maybe you should keep a food diary. This can be a great way to see what you love the most and get great ideas of what name will fit your child the best. Alternatively, go to the grocery store with the express purpose of shopping for a name! In this case, you’ll want to make a list as you go instead of checking things off.

Now, I think I will go have a Bartlett (a type of pear) with some Chai (spiced tea). Happy name hunting!
