Naming a child is the most far-reaching act of parenting. It is something that goes on to introduce and, in many ways, define the person.

That’s why most parents take different approaches to the task even before birth.

While many couples take the advice of their family elders, friends, or mentors, others tend to focus on their inspirations, influences and favourties.

There was a time when expecting parents or new parents would buy name books to shortlist or finalise a name for their child. That practice has now been replaced by the use of the internet, which can present catalogues of various names, depending on one’s requirement.

But even in the age of quick references, it’s not easy to do away with favorites that can influence the name of a baby.

You may have heard a child named after a famous person, monument, place, or fictional character. But how often have you heard a child being named after their parents’ favourite snack?

A child born to a UK couple has been named after the immensely popular Indian snack ‘Pakora,’ a fritter or a piece of vegetable or meat, coated in seasoned batter and deep-fried.

The news of the amusing name was announced to the internet audience by The Captian’s Table, a famous restaurant in Ireland, according to news agency ANI.

The restaurant took to social media to announce that the couple, who frequents their restaurant, named their newborn after the popular Indian dish.

The post shared a photo of the newborn and a photo of the bull receipt that had the names of the dishes ordered by the parents, that have ‘pakoda’ in them.

Netizens took the comment’s section to extend warm congratulations to the couple. Many saw the funny side of it and got involved in some fun banter.
A user wrote, “Just that kid should not come out in rainy seasons if he’s in India… sab kha jayenge.”

“I am truly proud today! Baby Pakoda!” wrote another.
