    I had a teenage mom that came in I asked what the newborns name was, she smiled and state "Sparkles". I kept a straight face and thought to myself what a loving mother to give her daughter a stripper name.

    On the Today show this morning there was a little girl who was in the choir. The anchor asked her what her name was and she said, "I adore her". The anchor said, "your name is I adore her?" and the little girl said yes. When she says her name it would be like talking about yourself in the third person...lol

    I once took care of a little boy named Neon. I see really unusual spellings more than I see really unusual names...Kgauge (Gage), Brytkneigh (Brittany), Dayvod (David), Meloni (Melanie), Tielor (Tyler)...just to name a few!

    There was a little boy down the street and his parents wanted to name him Harley with Davidson as his middle name. They settled on Dallas. The little brother was Austin. Were they from Texas? Nope, just thought it would be "a hoot."

    Yep, that's just where I want to get my chuckles from, people's reactions to my children's names.

    Oh, boy . . .

    I triaged a pair of brothers (not twins) named Hunter and Fisher. Also took care of a 40-something year old named Baby Boy. (Swear to God, I saw his driver's license!)

    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. )
