1. Barack

The first name of the charismatic 44th President of the US, which he owes to his Kenyan father, refers to a famous Hungarian apricot brandy as well. No, don’t ask whether Barack takes a little brandy in the backyard!

2. Jasmine

You might easily associate Jasmine with Aladdin’s famous Princess Jasmine. However, Jasmine refers to a beautiful Persian flower. It also is a popular spice.

3. Tamarind

The name Amandine may be uncommon in North America, but it’s a French version of Amanda, the more familiar name. Notably, Amandine means “what is garnished or prepared with almonds.”

6. Kobe

Also the name of the famous late US basketball star Kobe Bryant, the name Kobe refers to a Japanese steakhouse. It also means “supplanter” in Hebrew.

7. Saffron

8. Peaches

Not only is it the name of a fruit, but Peaches is also an adorable name popularized by Peaches Geldof, the late British model and TV personality.

14. Rosemary
