Apple? vs. Could it ever work?

I’m having a girl I seriously adore the name Apple. It’s so wise and fresh and beautiful and just has the most amazing imagery for me. I like Apple Frances, Apple Lucillle or Apple Mia best. Obviously though, it would be a controversial choice. My question is could I make it work? Maybe if I gave her a normal first name, and we called her Apple? If it doesn’t work, are there similar feeling names?

I’m not sure I’d call it ’wise and fresh’ but that might just be me.
If you’re brave enough to use it, I suppose you could. But personally I would give her a more normal name and give her Apple as a nickname.

I like Apple, agree it can be fresh and it has a beautiful image, i dont think it sounds girly though, that’s my only hang up big if you love it,use it!! Apple Lucille for sure, or Lucille Apple is great too.
Just in case, the name Avalon means apple. GL

I think it sounds fine I’m just worried what will happen if she starts school. I absolutely adore Apple Mia!!

No, Apple could not work as a name. Especially if you’re not a celebrity. I would never consider it a "wise" or "fresh" name either

It will work. It is a cute name, it will just take some time for people to get used to it, if they ever will. It is a different, unique name, and people don’t like that. So if you don’t mind what others think (you really shouldn’t), then it is cool.

I kind of adore it, too. It is fresh and beautiful, I agree. Go for it, I dare you. I never thought of this name. I think I will put it into consideration too, if you don’t mind. But if you are definitely using it and don’t want me stealing you name, then I won’t. It’s a cute name. I would use a middle name that is not a word name, though, if I were to use Apple as a first name. Good luck!

That child would be teased/bullied endlessly

No Apple is ridiculous as a child’s name but what about Orchard instead?

I don’t know yet if I’ll use it, but you have my full permission to steal it! And thanks everyone for the advice, for and against the name. I’ll do another post with updated thoughts another time.

If you love it, I say go for it! I like Apple Frances - it’s an interesting contrast. You could have it as her middle name but use it as her first name if you’re a bit hesitate. Good luck to you!

No, your child will be greatly made fun of.
Sorry :(

No absolutely not, your child will be a laughing stock and will never be taken seriously as an adult.
