Meaning:Sesame seed or fruit, oil plant or seed
If you like names the way you like food—rich and nutty—Sesame may be the stand-out title you’re looking for. This feminine appellation derives from the Greek sēsamon, meaning “sesame seed,” but its roots grow deeper into Phoenician, Old Aramaic, and Late Babylonian usage. Its Akkadian origin grants it the literal meaning of “oil plant” or “oil seed,” and the delicious flavor of sesame seeds has remained a favorite among humans for millennia. Sesame was brought to the English language from the French sisame way back in the 15th century. Famously associated with the children’s educational television series Sesame Street, this botanical name celebrates your little sprout's blossoming personality and ever-growing curiosity.
