I don't hate the name Apple, and in fact, I think it's kind of cute. Better than "Pilot Inspektor," "Moxie Crimefighter," and "Kal-El."Moses, however, seems to be a poor choice. He will get teased. Probably less than my former co-worker's son named Atticus, but more than my friend's kid named Blaine.
Better than "Pilot Inspektor," "Moxie Crimefighter," and "Kal-El" is not a very high hurdle to jump. And while Apple may be a little cute, what's going to happen when Apple gets older and wants to be taken seriously?
I'm not sure that Apple will be teased. She will probably be in an elite school with other celebrity children with odd/unusual names. But yes, she will need an adult name. What's her middle name? Or maybe she'll gain a nickname that has nothing to do with her first name.
Apple WILL be teased. I'll tease Apple, if nothing else.
Look at the family -- her mother's name is Gwyneth, and her grandmother's name is Blythe. It's not like they're picking off the top-10 most popular name list anyway.They probably think normal names are pedestrian.
Chris apparently picked out the name "Apple," which Gwyneth thought was sweet and biblical, which explains Moses (also the name of one of Chris' songs).
