    Why do parents of twins get so strange with the names?

    We had a mom who REALLY wanted to name her baby girl "vagina" (pronounced vahgeena).... we were like, please honey, no.....

    Another one actually named her baby chlamydia, bc she liked the way it sounded. Had no idea what it was.....

    This is just a little bit of pet peeve of mine - I've heard a lot of funny names, but some of the stories that get passed around aren't necessarily true and people don't realize how old the story really is.

    I haven't had too many funny ones but the trendy ones are getting ridiculous:

    I swear we've had at least 30 just this year of either a Jayden, Kayden, Aiden or Cayden - boys & girls.

    Nyvaeh (heaven backwards & with a Y)

    Chloe (pronounced Shiloh)

    I'm so glad someone started this thread!!!

    Twin girls: hope and faith (we had 2 sets of those in the past year)

    Luv (pronounced "love" - for a baby boy)

    Treasure (girl)

    Miracle (a few of these in the past years for girls)

    And lately, we've had a return of some of the more old fashion names... June, Pearl, Ruby... very intersting

    I'm sure I'll think of some more "odd" names that we've had soon!!

    Well, that's original. Strange, but original. Does that mean that your name is pronounced kayla shiloh, or some such thing?

    Amazing Grace

    A'miracle (not to forget the obligatory ' to make the name cool. However, this one really was a miracle. 24 weeker who layed in a outlying hospital left for dead after a 20 min resus attempt. After an hour kiddo started making cry noises so a resus was again started and transfered. Kid had the most uneventful NICU course! Left PO feeding, crying, looking around!)

    Tytanna (mom said it spelled tatyana.... I told her that the spelling was not what she called it, but she wants it to be unique....)

    Once had a Mama want to name her baby boy Maddog - claimed it was one of the Knights of the Round Table or something. She changed it to Maddage after we pointed out people would call him Mad Dog.

    I had a Heaven Nevaeh in peds.

    What I've noticed lately is a trend for "unique" spellings. One I posted in another thread: Jaymz.

    Also one named "Trae." I always thought that was a nickname used for a kid who happened to be "John Doe III." This kid's dad and grandfather had totally different names.

    We know a couple whose son is named after the dad. They call him "Deuce." (At least, I think it's just a nickname!)

    I also have a hard time with people giving kids names which are not pronounced the way they are spelled, then getting peeved when the rest of us aren't mind readers, as in:
    "Jonathan but pronounced Joe Nathan....got mom upset when I called him Jonathan" We had one in peds which was spelled something like Alleluia but pronounced like A-lay-yah. This mom got mad because everyone (but everyone!) pronounced it like it was spelled: Al-lay-lu-yah. Parents like that are either going to chill out about the name, or go through life mad. :trout:


    Oh, and I had a baby in peds the parents named "Angel." Due to a clerical error, her records orignally had her name as "Angle."
