    ...another interesting place to read about names is a book called, "The Name Game" and it actually talks about how your name can affect who you are and how popular, successful, liked, smart, etc. you are. Good reading, check it out.

    or maybe everyone can agree just to never, ever mention the "jello twins" in this thread again? :chuckle I've followed this thread from start to finish and it seems like every few pages someone posts about them thinking they are the very first ones to do so. But I guess when a thread grows as long as this has, you've got to expect to see some repitition.

    Honestly, I love reading the funny names as well, but it's a long thread, maybe it's time to close this one and start a new one?
    Oh, so the request was to just shut this one down and start anew? That wouldn't be bad. Of course, that might give a new poster the idea that we haven't discussed those jello triplets yet (don't forget, a story about lime jello has now joined those about lemon and orange). I wonder if at some point, some Mom didn't name her son something like LeMangelo or Orangelo, maybe not even having anything to do with actual jello but just because she liked the sound of it. A nurse could have made an assumption about why the name was chosen and the story took on a life of its own from there. Once. Not thousands of times, as urban legend would have us believe given the proliferation of these stories, but just once.

    I was a secondary teacher for 12 years, and the worst name I ran into was a poor girl named Tyranny. I asked her how she got her name, and she said her parents liked the way it sounded. I've also had a student whose God-given name was Skeeter. :uhoh21:

    LOL, I always did like the name "Angelo--" conjures up a sexy Italian race car driver I once read about in a (fiction) book.

    I guess to be "different" one could add "Leman" to it--pronounced like the car and also the French racetrack, LeMans (leaving the "ans" off, since it's already included in "Angelo"--)

    Hmmmmm......maybe when one of my daughters gets pregnant, I could convince her to name a son......nahhh, better not....

    Isn't it funny, though, how even among one's own aquaintances there is always SOMEONE (usually an ER or OB nurse) who SWEARS they have seen a set of twins named Lemonjello and Oranjello? Even people you KNOW would never make up a story? I have a friend in Antioch, Tennessee, who swears on the Bible he's had boys with those names in his ER--and he lives by his Bible.

    Still, I've never met any child OR adult with those names, and they sure seem to be popular, especially in the South! I guess I don't get out enough.

    I once knew a girl named Rita...at least, I THOUGHT her name was Rita. Then the secretary at my doctor's office informed me that her full legal name was actually Rectalina...pronounced RECTAL-LINA. I am not kidding. I felt so bad for her, but really, it explained a lot...

    Moved to Texas years ago and was going through a receiving line at a political function. I was introduced to Fonda Lynn Peters. I barely made it to a safe place to LMAO.

    This isn't really the same thing as the original question, but I have a friend named Monsita. She has been called "Monistat" several times, including at her OB's office. Really, you'd think they'd consider it highly unlikely that someone would have that name, especially someone in their practice, which is located in a pretty tony area.

    Some of the most unusual names I have heard lately are ones like "John", "Susan", etc. LOL However, I know a girl whose name is Princess and she named her daughter Princess Angel.

    Here's another one you L&D nurses or ER nurses should appreciate. You know the usual mom who didn't know she was pregnant had a baby in the toilet. Well, one of those came into the ER many, many years ago. She of course didn't have a name for the baby. She asked the ER doctor if she had any ideas. After returning from the bathroom later, the doctor (whom I know) suggested Kohler. Yes after the bathroom amenities manufacturer. Somewhere in lower Alabama there is a kid graduating high school soon named Kohler--named for a toilet!
