Couple Whose Surname Is Cupp Named Their Daughter Reese E., And It's One Of The Sweetest Names Ever
The Cupp family from Elizabethtown, North Caroline, loves the popular chocolate brand Reese's so much that they decided to name their daughter after the chocolate and peanut butter candy.
Renee Cupp and her husband both love Reese's cups so when she was pregnant with their daughter, the couple agreed to name her after the candy.
Renee says that they initially chose Lily for the baby's name. However, they took advantage of their surname and opted for Reese. They registered their daughter's name as Reese Eve Cupp on her birth certificate.
In an interview, Cupp says their daughter's name has its history. The idea behind the name came from her older sister, Erica, who the mother says used to go around asking for Reese's chocolate candies as a child.
Likewise, her husband's surname also added to the idea. Cupp says that growing up, he was also teased for the spelling of his last name. This is when the couple decided to just "take the humor and run with it."
Thankfully, their daughter, now eight, does not mind being named after the famous candy brand. Cupp says that Reese "loves her name."
"She always says 'oh, little Reese Cup. I'm a little Reese Cup.' She loves everything chocolate," Cupp tells People.
Aside from the Cupp family, Shannon Dorchak also named her daughter Reese. The nurse from Michigan says her husband has always liked the name Reese.
She reveals that personally, she has been "obsessed" with the candy for as long as she can remember. She is an outrageous Reese's fan. She even owns Reese's-themed coffee cups, planners, and notebooks, and her family always makes sure to gift her Reese's memorabilia. Dorchak says everyone now calls her baby little nicknames like Reese's pieces or Reese Cup.

Cupp and Dorchak are among the hopeful participants of Reese's Outrageous Bars contest on social media. The mothers each shared a photo of their daughter on Twitter to join the contest.
