Here's the story that I heard. I have no idea where I heard it, so take it for what it is worth. The story goes that the Earl had a surprise dinner guest arrive. The Earl being an Earl, wouldn't refuse a guest for dinner, so he told his head servant to prepare dinner for the guest. Apparently the "eating gloves" were not clean, so the servant needed to find a way to keep their hands clean while they ate. He cut two large slabs of bread from a loaf, and put the dinner meat between them and served it. The guest loved the idea, and half heartedly named it after the Earl who served it giving no credit to the creative servant. This could be completely bull crap, but for some reason this tale comes to mind every time.

The version I heard was that the Earl liked to play cards and wanted to eat without stopping the game or soiling the cards, so he asked for a food that could be held without getting one's hands dirty.

I had no idea. I thought about typing apple while mentally going through all the fruits, but thought, "Nah, not even an idiot would name a child Apple." I guess one idiot did.

Btw how is rose or daisy or any random flower name less weird? It is only not weird because we are used to it. Naming someone after fruit is hardly (just a tiny bit) weirder than naming them after flowers. Imagine your kid named daffodil or chrysanthemum, rhododendron or gladiolus, that would be weirder than apple wouldnt it?

Maybe those names are weirder than apple because they are too long and formal, but apple is still a pretty bad name. You are guaranteeing your child a lifetime of ridicule from insensitive children to snickering adults.

Just because some name is weirder than "Apple" doesn't mean "Apple" isn't weird. BTW, just to show how close-minded everone is and in a misguided attempt to normalize that which is bizarre because it somehow makes more more virtuous than everyone else, I am going to name my next kid "Grapefruit". After that, it will be "Asparagus". And from there, we're on to the frozen food aisle!

@ jmellor13 You think that young kids are going to care about who her parent is? You’re right that she probably won’t be bullied much in middle or high school, but most elementary school children wouldn’t care less. To them, an apple is a food and a way to remember the alphabet, making it a pretty funny name in their eyes.

Does it make it more or less idiotic that the name is one letter off from "apple martini?" I guess that's what she was drunk on when the child was conceived?

Well it is SUCH a weird name ( like calling your child North West) that you only need to have heard of it once. I dont know anything about showbizz, but those two I know.

Plus if you were gonna guess random foodstuff apple would be one of the first.

I mentioned this on another quiz, but in going through historical records of my area I've come across these names (these are all from official records) - Belle Ringer, Green Fields, Knighten Day, Madden Looney, and Golden Brown. It's not only celebrities who can get "inventive" with names.

In my country the name dick is just as common as john or mark or peter would be in english. Both dick and dirk come from Diederick which comes from Theodoric. If I remember correctly it means ruler of the people, the first part has the same root as teutonic for example and the last part is congante with rex. (Richard however means strong (hard) ruler, though I seem to remember that the rich in richard does not had the same root as -rick but has something to do with wealth..)

Although her name was "Peach" in Japan, it was "Princess Toadstool" outside of Japan until 1996, when Nintendo resolved the discrepancy by revealing Peach to be her first name in Super Mario 64. Peach Toadstool is usually referred to as "Princess Toadstool" or "Peach", but not "Princess Peach". Since toadstools can be edible, that should at least be a type-in, if not the correct answer with "peach" as a type-in.
