“Her dad came up with the name and I fell in love with it,” Gwyneth confessed. “I thought it was original and cool. I can’t imagine her being called anything else.”
The actress previously gave credit to the Coldplay frontman in August 2004, explaining to Oprah Winfrey why Chris first made the suggestion to go with Apple.
“When we were first pregnant, her daddy said, ‘If it’s a girl I think her name should be Apple,'” Paltrow said in the interview. “It sounded so sweet, and it conjured such a lovely picture for me, you know.”
She added, “Apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome and it’s biblical.”
