I guess you could say it all started with Apple Martin. The year was 2004, and Gwyneth Paltrow was pre-Goop.

Small and blonde, her new baby girl was adorable – but ‘Apple’? Like, as in the fruit? Yes, a baby name inspired by the contents of Gwyn’s fridge. We were stumped.

Many collectively screamed: “What the %@*#(^@ was that woman thinking?!”

Anyway, it seems that Gwynnie had one up on all of us, because unique baby names – especially those inspired by food – are IN right now.

Ginger? Plum? There’s something old-worldly about them and they’re very, very cute. Here are some worth considering.
