Sweet! Candy-style baby names


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

That’s what one reader asked! 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
