It doesn’t take long for people to start asking you, “Have you picked a name yet?” when they find out you’re pregnant. It’s everyone’s favorite question, right after “Do you know what you’re having?” and before “Are you going to breastfeed?” For some moms-to-be however, the question of a baby’s name can be the most overwhelming. Drawing inspiration from television, movies, and books is fine, but you might want a name with a more subtle connection like a baby name based on your favorite wine.
I know what you’re thinking, and no, these monikers won’t make you sound like an alcoholic. Instead of naming your child Chardonnay (which, let’s be honest, sounds a little pretentious), you can focus on the flavors of the wine, the characteristics of it. Is it a sweet, easy to drink white? Or is it a more robust, flavorful red? Maybe your favorite comes from Italy and can inspire you to give your babe a romantic, Italian name. No matter what your favorite wine is, there is a way to incorporate that delicious bottle into your baby’s moniker. With these eleven wines, you can find a name that complements them and gives you an answer to all those busybody questions.
