I am trying to think of a woman's name that has to do with food, for a reason so frivolous I am loath to share it. All I can think of is Candy. Any thoughts?

Muffin, or Muffy.

I know a girl named Champagne.

And of course, there's always my best friend Chicken Parmesean. Her last name is Matsunaga, if you were curious.

Is there anyone actually named "Honey" or was that just that movie?

I think I've heard of a girl named "Pepper" but I can't remember where.

I have been to a horse show, where there was a lady showing named Pepper. My grandma's name is Delite, which is the ending of many food names.

Anona must be Latin because it ain't Spanish at all. Piña is the word, m'dear. [Wink]

Hey, I didn't write the website. Not sure why the Spanish might be in there. It could be to indicate that some Spanish people name their girls Anona, whether it has anything to do with "Pineapple" or not.

I like the "godess of provisions" bit. [Big Grin]

I've known women named Cookie.

There is Strawberry Saroyan.

I have a friend whose sister's name is Tootsie (although that may be a nickname).

My aunt is actually called Honey, but that's not really her name, it's just because my grandmother called her Honey so often that her older brothers thought it was her name.

Eithne or Eitna (Anglicized as "Enya") means "kernel of a nut or seed".
Grainne or Grania, from "gran" meaning "grain, corn".

(Both from Baby Names of Ireland, one of my favorite baby name websites. [Smile] )

Stephan, I'm pretty skeptical of that claim. I've had a decent number of people tell me that they know someone who knows someone by the name of Orangejello, often with a sibling named Lemonjello. Smacks of urban legend to me.

No, just that I remember an urban myth, or at least close, about a set of twins named Oranjello and Lemonjello.

I think that the mushroom is "Chanterelle".

But there is "Crystal" which is the name of a cheap burger joint or an expensive champagne.

Tamar is a Hebrew name than means "date" (as in the fruit).

Fresca contains esters of wood resin, so I suppose that you could say that the name Esther is a homophone of a food related term.

And when you get a bit older, they can call you "Prune".

How about "Rapunzel"?
