As a kid I hated broccoli. Like this girl, I could well have believed that broccoli should be called b-coli. The etymology of the word broccoli is: from Italian broccoli, plural of broccolo “a sprout, cabbage sprout,” diminutive of brocco “shoot, protruding tooth, small nail” (via etymoline). That doesn’t make it any more appetizing. I would love to say that I love broccoli now, but adult-me merely tolerates it, like most of vegetables.
