What Does a List of Cabbage Patch Doll Names Mean?

Early in the 1980s, the Cabbage Patch dolls appeared on the scene, complete with adoption documents for the new parents. Edwin Nicholas, Cora Delilah, William Jack, Rose Katniss, Emily Jane, Destiny Raine, and Jared Benjamin were a few of the imaginative names given to the cabbage patch dolls.

In 1978, American art student Xavier Roberts invented the first Cabbage Patch doll. He fashioned the dolls out of only linen and originally called them “Little People.” Every doll sold starting in 1983 came with a birth name, a birth certificate, an adoption certificate, and a narrative explaining how the Cabbage Patch Kid came to be.

When Roger Schlaifer acquired the licencing rights to the “Little People,” the name was changed to Cabbage Patch Kids.

In the narrative, Xavier was a 10-year-old kid who followed a BunnyBee through a fantastic waterfall and found the Cabbage Patch Kids. Xavier learned that the Cabbage Patch Kids factory was being built for the sinister Lavender McDade, who intended to use the children as slaves in her gold mine.

Before delivering each Cabbage Patch Kid to the security of their new loving home, Xavier set out to make sure they had all been adopted by loving parents and given a special name.
