Gender: Female Origin of Cherry: Fruit name

The name Cherry is a girl's name . Cherry and is often added to lists like Color Names for Babies and discussed in our forums with posts like "Adding Then Eliminating -- Girls Themed".

From the experts:

With other fruity names like Clementine, Olive and Plum ripe for the picking, sweet Cherry remains remarkably underused: just 27 baby girls received the name in 2017, down from 343 at its peak in 1948. The unsavory slang meaning no doubt goes a long way towards explaining its fall from grace.
