Gender: M Origin of Lemon: Fruit name

Lemon is one of the more unusual fruit names, compared with sisters Clementine and Apple. That may be because lemon is also a word that's slang for a clunker, something that doesn't work very well. No baby wants to feel like a Lemon, so this is one of those unusual names that is best avoided.
