    I'm going to be completely honest, and I really hope this doesn't come across wrong. Apple is a great name for a 3 year old, but a horrible name for a 30 year old. I don't really think I could take someone seriously named Apple... I feel the same way about most edible names, especially since it seems like sooner or later they end up on the "stripper" list. I teach English to Chinese college students... whenever one says their name is something edible, it gets changed right away (granted, I've had Apple, Lemon, Celery, Cordon bleu, Bacon, Water, Cherry, Cookie, etc.)... One of my biggest concerns for them is how it will come across in the business world, especially since a bad or juvenile English name can actually reflect badly on their English skills. If I met a white Apple, I'd assume their parents were hippies. Apple could be great as a nn or mn... to give something a bit more grown up for the resume/ academia/ business world... As a mn it would give her a lot of control over whether and when to use it. This could be very useful when she's a middle-aged lawyer who wants to command authority and be taken seriously.
