Parents Are Naming Their Kids After Herbs And Spices

American parents are fairly creative when it comes to naming their children. They draw inspiration from all sorts of places, from TV shows to herbs and spices. The Huffington Post looked at the most recent year of name data from the Social Security Administration (from 2019), and found herbs and spices-inspired names were fairly popular:

  1. Basil (71 boys, 28 girls),
  2. Saffron (26 girls),
  3. Sage (666 boys, 1,164 girls),
  4. Ginger (57 Girls),
  5. Pepper (144 girls),
  6. Rosemary (760 girls),
  7. Cayenne (10 girls),
  8. Mace (60 boys),
  9. Juniper (22 boys, 1,526 girls),
  10. Poppy (628 girls),
  11. Lavender (114 girls),
  12. Jasmine (2,092 girls),
