    Why, why do parents do these mean things to their children???
    For our amusement, of course.

    This thread is just in fun as we are all very culturally diverse. Just a relief mechanism for overtired ER nurses (at least in my case).

    I had a girl that lived down the street from me a long time ago, and her mom and dad were HUGE SF 49 football fans at the time. Mom got pregnant, and they decided they would name the baby JOE MONTANA SMITH.....well the baby was a girl. so they named her JOANNA MONTANA SMITH and yep they called her 'jo'

    A girl i used to cheer with had daughter and named her HARLEY

    now i have a daughter that i spelled her name different than normal i admit, she is REBEKKA but that is not too weird.

    my mom and dad know a couple that have a son, and his name is (I swear) RONALD MICKEY MCDONALD.

    I had one patient with a name that was very hard to keep a straight face on, and I made sure to pronounce perfectly: Mr. Balzac. You guessed it- Harry Balzac.

    Just Curious is Baby Boy was from the US originally. It's a really common name in Liberia.
    Along with the names which are (I think most are nice) Blessing, Comfort, Remember, Mamagirl, BigBoy, and a lovely tribal name that doesn't translate well- Fat-U (Pronounced Fahtu. )

    I come from a big family and my mom thought about naming my last sister Remember Patience. Our local newspaper lists all the siblings with the birth announcements and she thought it would be funny for that to be the last of 10 names! lol

    i named my goldfish after celebrity babies. Had great fun researching them - i have Apple (Gwenyth Paltrow + Chris Martain), Poet (Soliel Moon Fry (aka Punky Brewster), as if her own name isn't bad enough), Dweezil and Moon Unit (Frank Zappa), and my favourite, Speck Wildhorse (John Mellencamp). Wanted to have a Reignbeau (i forget whose child this one is), and a Jermajesty (Jermaine Jackson), but tank size did not permit.

    i was thinking today actually, you know how some people call their babies after the place they were concieved, like Dallas, Paris, Brooklyn...? Well, do you think in Asia there's a whole heap of babies called Ho Chi Minh, Nagasaki, Tokyo, etc?

    I work with animals. If you think that people give their children weird names, look through the files at a vet hospital. We have a horse named "Peckerhead", a dog named "Budlight", several cats named "Freeway", "Highway", with couple of "No-way's" in the bunch, a snake named "Penis", another dog named "Sex" and this right along with pets named "Tasha", "Cody", "Kodi", "Codee", "Codi" (there are many ways to spell Cody and of course the owner expects you to know how to spell the particular Cody). Then there are all the interesting ways to spell Cheyenne, Dakota, Tilly, Millie, and of course Cat. Pets named, "Sweetums", "Baby", "Sweetie", or "Sugar" usually require a muzzle because they have a tendency to bite. Meanwhile those that are named "Killer", "Macho", "Harley", or "Meanie" are great to work with. We don't see any "Fido"s but we see quite a few "Pheido"s. I wonder about pet owners sometimes. Is it "Lassie" or "Lassy"?

    I have 2 sons, 3 grandsons and my sister and brother have 2 boys each. My oldest son and his wife are having a baby in March. IT"S A GIRL!!!!!!
    I am so excited. I love my son and daughter in law and I think they are wonderful parents and very successful graphic designers.
    They are naming my first granddaughter Talulla Grace I don't even know if thats how it's spelled. I the name of Deme Moore's 3rd daughter.
    I have heard of that name many years ago, Tallula Bankhead (giving my age away)
    I did'nt have a problem with the name, it is their baby, but when I tell people the name they all make a face and want to know why they would name their child Tallula.
    Feedback please.

    I had a pt today whose first name is "Abtrimarys." I have never heard of this name before and when I googled it, I got no response, but I may be spelling it wrong. Has anyone else heard of anything like this?

    As far as pet names go, my kids are hoping to name their new kitten "Schmildu Jones" I may have to take steps....(yes, my kids are weird):roll

    Demi Moore's child is Tullulah Belle, and i really like it! I think no matter what name someone decides on, there's people out there who'll say 'why would you name a child that??' for me, it's names like Boris, Wayne, Keith... no offence to the Borises, Waynes and Keiths of the world! my name's Susan, feel free to hate it.

    omg we always crack up at work when a new strange name comes through. some of the best have been:

    precious
    imunique (pronounced "i'm uneek)
    roper
    diamond

    and my personal favorite:

    exclamation (supposedly the parents want the child to choose his own name when he's 18......who wouldn't???):roll :roll

    That reminds me of the episode of "Mad About You" where Jamie has the baby. Paul meets Bruce Willis at the hospital and mentions that they don't even have a name picked out - what did Bruce name his kids? Of course, the answer, "Rumor, Scout, and Tullulah Belle," got quite a laugh. (If you haven't seen this episode, check it out, it was hysterical!)

    Of course, they named their child "Mabel" instead and "got a lot of heat for that" as they mentioned for the rest of the series.

    We had a resident named Electron. His brother was Neutron and sister Nucleus. His family was from Africa. He would get VERY mad when someone made fun of his name!
