Baby Names or Salad Toppings?

I think we can all agree, 2018 has been a weird year. Mercury is in retrograde, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan split, romaine lettuce is lethal, the President is still Don – I’ll just stop there.
And just when we thought we were going to make it into 2019 safely, BabyCenter reveals a new study: naming your children after salad ingredients is on the rise.
No, this is not some cruel joke that mom and dad are playing on their kids. Expecting parents are really planning to name their children after the toppings they eat each day for lunch. BabyCenter’s recent data claims that the name Kiwi has risen a whopping 40% and Clementine is up 15% with names like Kale, Maple and Saffron getting an honorable mention as well.
Gone are the days of four Matthews in your childhood classroom and instead, one little boy named Avocado. While the names are said to be connected with mindfulness and flavors, I can’t help but think this is just another keto-esque fad that may have gone too far…
Now who am I to judge, but whatever happened to a simple Emily? Maybe a nice Laura? Anything? Bueller?
Oh, what a time to be alive…
