Sweet! Candy-themed baby names

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

One site visitor asked about candy-themed baby names. 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 for baby names or nicknames.

We’ll start with the most basic ones…

  1. Candy (and variants like Candi, Kandy, Kandi, Kandie)
  2. Sugar
  3. Molasses
  4. Honey (there are actually several names that mean honey)
  5. Sweets/Sweetie
  6. Mint/Minty (Harriet Tubman was nicknamed ‘Minty’)
