Sweet! Candy-style baby names

Lollipops

A reader asks:

Are there any good baby names that are inspired by types of candy?

Our response:

Any good names? That all depends on what you consider good, because there really aren’t a lot of candy names that offer any measure of subtlety — you know, that don’t scream, “I AM A CANDY BRAND NAME!” But before you give up all hope of not being obvious and just decide to name your firstborn Snickers or Lemonhead, here are a few sweet ideas.

We’ll start with the most obvious ones…

  1. Candy (and variants like Candi, Kandy, Kandi, Kandie)
  2. Sugar
  3. Honey (there are actually a lot of names that mean honey)
  4. Sweetie

And then, we present you with 20-odd more candy-inspired baby names.

  1. Cocoa (or Coco)
  2. Anise (the flavor in black licorice)
  3. Caramel
  4. Charms
  5. Chiclet
  6. Cinnamon
  7. Jordan (from Jordan Almonds)
  8. Jujube (or Jujubee)
  9. Licorice
  10. Lolly (or Lollie)
  11. Mike or Ike (from Mike & Ike)
  12. Necco
  13. Pez
  14. Pixy (or Pixie)
  15. Reese (From Reese’s pieces and peanut butter cups)
