cheese names

Josie commented that the Hebrew word “gvinah” would be such a pretty girl’s name if you didn’t know it meant “cheese.” So we started pondering which cheeses would be good baby names if you did not know they were cheeses.

Here is our list:

Girls:

Emmenthaler (vaguely waspy, and you could call her Emma)
Mozzarella (Ella!)
Bleu D’Auvergne (there’s a “Blue” in her Hebrew School)
Brie (she met a Brie on vacation once)
Cotija
Fontina
Raclette (she LOVES raclette — she wants to name our next cat Raclette)

 

Boys:

Colby
Jack
Farmer
Manchego
Taleggio
Stilton
String

  1. Manchego, now, sounds vaguely sexy.

    I used to be a nanny for a girl named Brie, but her real name was Brianna.
