I wrote about babies named Oleomargarine a few years ago. Well, here are two more butter-related baby names I’ve uncovered recently.
Butterine was a synonym for margarine used by some companies in the early 1900s. No doubt they used it to remind consumers of the product’s butter-like qualities.
So far I’ve found two women with the first name Butterine:
- Butterine Borner, born in Louisiana circa 1917
- Butterine Davis, née Lewis, died in Texas in 1985
Nucoa was one the earliest brands of margarine. The word is pronounced new-coh — ignore the “a” at the end (think “cocoa”).
So far I’ve found two people, father and son, with the middle name Nucoa:
- Freelan Nucoa Oscar, Sr., born in California in 1933
- Freelan Nucoa Oscar, Jr., born in California in 1958
Have you come across any other food product baby names recently?
