    Is Lemon as wearable as it sounds?

    Both 30 Rock and Heart of Dixie have great female characters with the name. It is a sassy, bright and spunky name like the characters that wear them on tv. I get that references to bunk cars and having an ol' sour puss might be a factor.. but, I don't see it as an ultimate deterrent.

    I think it's different than Apple and more like Clementine. I have read in some places that it even could be used as a nn for that too much citrus confusion?


    Fresh or sour?

    Yikes... I don't like food names on people. I guess it's not as bad as Banana, but I think there are a lot of possibilities for teasing. I also can't imagine a teenager or 40-year-old named Lemon.

    Lemon is the last name of the character on 30 Rock. Liz Lemon. I think it's ok as a nickname, but not a first name.
    Mom to Alexander Patrick (11), Madelyn Esther (8), Genevieve Susan (3), and Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014). Expecting #5 (a girl) in May 2015 -- Penelope Bridget.

    I think the reason it works on 30 Rock is because it's her last name. It would be a cute nickname or name for a character in a book, but applying to colleges and jobs as "Lemon" would be a pain.

    Maybe a fun middle name? I think it's cute, but it would be hard to take seriously.
