It's become a common trend for modern parents to name their babies after unconventional things they enjoy. The current passion is healthy foods, which results in babies named Kale, Kiwi, Sage, and the like. Even baby boys have received names like Hazel or Saffron.
BabyCenter is a parenting website that reports the current name trends (Quartzy). They encountered this new naming fad from Millennial and Generation Z parents. Younger parents sometimes seek to give their children unique names - but it's not just younger parents; many celebrities have done the same thing.
Although the popularity of the food name trend may be rising, parents have been giving their children grocery names for a while (Bon Appétit Magazine). The first recorded use of Kale was in 1962.
