Here's the story that I heard. I have no idea where I heard it, so take it for what it is worth. The story goes that the Earl had a surprise dinner guest arrive. The Earl being an Earl, wouldn't refuse a guest for dinner, so he told his head servant to prepare dinner for the guest. Apparently the "eating gloves" were not clean, so the servant needed to find a way to keep their hands clean while they ate. He cut two large slabs of bread from a loaf, and put the dinner meat between them and served it. The guest loved the idea, and half heartedly named it after the Earl who served it giving no credit to the creative servant. This could be completely bull crap, but for some reason this tale comes to mind every time.

The version I heard was that the Earl liked to play cards and wanted to eat without stopping the game or soiling the cards, so he asked for a food that could be held without getting one's hands dirty.

I had no idea. I thought about typing apple while mentally going through all the fruits, but thought, "Nah, not even an idiot would name a child Apple." I guess one idiot did.

Btw how is rose or daisy or any random flower name less weird? It is only not weird because we are used to it. Naming someone after fruit is hardly (just a tiny bit) weirder than naming them after flowers. Imagine your kid named daffodil or chrysanthemum, rhododendron or gladiolus, that would be weirder than apple wouldnt it?

Just because some name is weirder than "Apple" doesn't mean "Apple" isn't weird. BTW, just to show how close-minded everone is and in a misguided attempt to normalize that which is bizarre because it somehow makes more more virtuous than everyone else, I am going to name my next kid "Grapefruit". After that, it will be "Asparagus". And from there, we're on to the frozen food aisle!

Well it is SUCH a weird name ( like calling your child North West) that you only need to have heard of it once. I dont know anything about showbizz, but those two I know.

Plus if you were gonna guess random foodstuff apple would be one of the first.

Although her name was "Peach" in Japan, it was "Princess Toadstool" outside of Japan until 1996, when Nintendo resolved the discrepancy by revealing Peach to be her first name in Super Mario 64. Peach Toadstool is usually referred to as "Princess Toadstool" or "Peach", but not "Princess Peach". Since toadstools can be edible, that should at least be a type-in, if not the correct answer with "peach" as a type-in.

She became a very big name starting in the early 2000's, especially after winning a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Monster's Ball (2002). She was the first, and to-date, only African American woman to do so. The only prior Oscar for a black person was for Hattie McDaniel for her supporting actress role as Mammy in Gone With the Wind.
