10 Baby Names Inspired by Common Pregnancy Cravings
Wednesday, October 5th, 2016
Cravings go hand in hand with pregnancy, and it’s one of the first questions people tend to ask pregnant ladies: What are you craving?
If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect baby name, why not focus on inspiration that’s all around you, like those pregnancy cravings? Think of the adorable story you can tell your child when they’re older about why you chose the name you did for them.
If you’re all about ice cream or chocolate or one of the other top pregnancy cravings, there are some amazingly cute names that may be the perfect one you’ve been looking for.
Pregnancy and ice cream go together like peanut butter and jelly! While it may not be a food every pregnant woman wants to devour, it has to be one of the first cravings many think about for a reason.
If you’re a fan of ice cream, two adorable names for your baby-to-be can be found right in the ice cream brand.
Robin – After Baskin-Robbins, this name is perfect for boy or girl.
Ben – Who doesn’t love their Ben & Jerry’s ice cream? If you’re a fan of any of their awesome flavors, Ben is a great name that’s not too obvious where the inspiration came from.
For some women, pregnancy brings a craving for all things salty. If you’re a fan of the potato chips, the pickles, or other salty goodness, there are some fun names for your baby that can totally show off your love for the sodium.
Chip – While you may think of this more as a nickname, the name on its own is adorable and spells out your pregnancy craving.
Kale/Cale – If you’re more all about the kale chips, which can still be really salty, this name is perfect for your little boy who will soon be in your arms.
Chocolate is like any woman’s best friend and when you’re pregnant, the love just grows. If you’re a fan of chocolate, whether it was a real pregnancy craving or not, inspired baby names are totally acceptable.
Reese – Peanut butter and chocolate go amazingly well together, and we know this thanks to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
York – If you’re more all about the mint and chocolate, this name inspired by York Peppermint Patties is too cute to pass on.
I craved so much fruit when I was pregnant with boys that I swear I could eat my weight in strawberries, melons, and apples. If you are as big as a fan as I was, these names are cute for your baby.
Apple – While this name isn’t one that was considered person-worthy a few years ago, it’s been repurposed for cute girl names, and it works.
Huckleberry – They look kind of like blueberries and taste amazing. Also, how cute is Huck for a nickname?
If you’re not plagued by heartburn in pregnancy and you can tolerate spices, you’re awesome. For about one week only in my last pregnancy, I was craving curry, but for the most part, I wanted blander foods. If you crave the spice, there are many more of you out there, too.
Pepper – When I think of this name, I think of Pepper from the Iron Man series, and it’s also one of my favorite spices! It’s a cute name for a sweet little girl and an ode to your love for the spice.
Ginger – Spice Girls unite! This spice gives just the right amount of kick without sending taste buds into over-drive, and it’s an adorable baby name, too.
