Choosing a foodie baby name
Hungry yet? Don't go overboard on snacks as you try these baby names on for size. (Who are we kidding? Indulge your pregnancy cravings.) Remember, if you want a dash of foodie goodness without going full-on culinary with your baby name, tag a foodie name onto a more traditional name for a perfect combination. Consider coming up with a foodie baby name of your own, but don’t think too far outside of the box. You don’t want your child to be the only one named Spaghetti Bolognese in his kindergarten class. Likewise, try not to match two food names together. Rueban Rye is just a little too yummy.
