If you know baby may have a fiery personality, you may have struck gold with Pepper. This gender-neutral title comes from the German and Middle-English Piper and Peper and used to be an occupational name for a spicer. Historically, Pepper has been a chic nickname for those with dark hair or a quick temper. Pepper is an edible fruit from the Capsicum genus that is dried and grounded into the peppery seasoning we love to eat. This spunky appellation has earned its right as a first name and will undoubtedly pave the way for spice names to become more trendy. Pepper screams, “don’t mess with me!” and will be a beautiful title for baby.
