Wikipedia defines pastries as "small cakes or confections made using stiff dough enriched with fat." We define them as scrumptious! We rounded up the best versions of shortcrust, filo, choux, flaky and puff to present these edible baby name ideas. Eat 'em up!

Alexandertorte: Name your child Alexander Torte after the berry-filled pastry strip.

Aloo pie: Call your little one "Aloo," a soft, fried pastry that is a variant of the samosa.

Apple strudel: Apple works for Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter. Are you game for "Strudel," too?
