I'm sure these names in particular enjoy a certain level of ubiquity to have most of the population associate them with food and drinks. I suppose, though, that the rapidly evolving nature of software kinda puts a damper on establishing this ubiquity for various application software packages.

I believe Microsoft named it "Windows" because it was/is like a window into your computer. Or something like that. Starbucks (the coffee shop chain) is named after a character in the Herman Melville novel Moby-Dick.
P.S. Any criticism of Gnome (as a name for a Window Manager) can be re-assessed when you consider it's an acronym of GNU Network Object Model Environment (whatever that means).
