Searching for a Meaning

After the announcement that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's newborn baby girl had been named "Apple," many have been trying to get to the bottom of the name's origin. The geeks of the world have likened it to the computer company, while others others have surmised that it has something to do with the Beatles' record label.
According to 1490 WBEX, Chris and his wife are just as mystified as the rest of us:
Coldplay singer Chris Martin says he and wife Gwyneth Paltrow have no idea why they decided to call their baby Apple.
The 'Clocks' star who was delighted when his Oscar-winning spouse delivered their baby girl on Friday tried to account for the unusual name when quizzed by reporters outside the couple's home in London Monday.
But bemused Chris was hard-pressed to give an adequate reason for the bizarre birth name, and says even he and Gwyneth are slightly mystified by it.
He said, "I don't know why we chose that. It's just a very cool name."
I have to agree with Chris, it certainly is a very cool name.
