    We had a mom name her son Brain. Seriously we tried to show her it's really spelled BrIAN but she wouldn't change it. All I could picture when I looked at that poor baby was the show Pinky and the Brain lol

    Friend of a friend wanted to name her baby daughter after a paint color. After looking at many cans for inspiration, she decided Enamel (pronounce EE-na-mel) was the most beautiful name ever. I was surprised she didn't choose Latex as the middle name.

    A name I heard was from a lady who shared a room with me after we had just given birth. She named her baby Stormy Dilemma. Oh my goodness, I worried for that baby.

    I may have mentioned this on another thread but triplet boys: John, Johnnie, and Jonathan.
    How confusing will THAT be when they are toddlers running around the house?

    I met a lady who named her daughter "daine" or something like that. It was supposed to be Diana. They spelled it like you would pronounce the letters in spanish I think.

    I also knew "Candie Caines" in high school.

    I don't understand why people do this to their children. Especially the ones that sound like stripper/"entertainer" names.

    Calling out so many names over the years while working in a clinic made me really think about what to name my kids, how their names could be mispelled, etc. I had a friend who named her daughter Christina spelled "Krystyna". No one will ever spell it right.

    As a kid I could never find a coffee mug or keychain with my name on it when we went somewhere (like Knott's Berry Farm) and this bugged me. I wanted my kids to have common, decent names that would be pronounced and spelled correctly.
    So I named them Burlap and, just kidding.

    A 4th grade teacher at my school growing up was Mrs. Blitch.

    My husband's elementary school (I forget which grade) was Mrs. Yertle, so all the kids called her Mrs. Yertle the turtle.

    I used to work in L&D. We had an African American patient who had birthed twin girls. I asked if she had chosen names for her babies and she said, "No, name them for me..." So, I named twin "A" Alexis and twin "B" Bethany. She kept the names and I praised her for naming them something they'll be able to spell before high school!

    In the same unit, a new mother told me her baby's name. I asked, "How do you spell that?" She replied, with a straight face, "I don't know. How would you spell it?" I said, "I wouldn't spell it because it would never occur to me to name my baby that." I think she finally chose Marcus! Thank goodness!

    I have one but its more sad then funny...a woman from a tribe in the Amazon gave birth to a baby girl she spoke a language no one understood and very little Spanish .
    The baby had that little wrist ban that said female on it and she assumed that that was the baby's name she actually thought she didn't have a say in the baby's name so female went on the birth certifacte as the baby's name

    What I don't get is why didn't one of the nurses or anybody step in and say no that's not a name or atleast put the moms name as the baby's name its really sad all because she doesn't understand the language or culture

    It turned into a big deal but no one did anything about it and life went on....
