    Of all the unusual baby names I've heard in my life, the strangest remain "Little Johnnie Zig-Zag" and "Isle of Fantasy" Both children were named by rather unique parents in 1971, in the L&D where I completed my student nurses rotation. Reader's Digest published a little book entitled, "Remarkable Names of Real People." Some entries also include the person's occupation. If you ever get a chance to read it, it will supply a bit of insight into the lives of those babies with unusual names. They do grow up. 'Groaner Digger' became an undertaker. 'I.C. Shivers' became an iceman, and my personal favorite, 'Lavender Sidebottom' became a massage therapist. I fear to think what Little Johnnie and Isle will become!

    there is an obgyn where i used to work named dr. fingerhood!

    My brother's senior prom date: Candy Dessert (he still has some art work that he bought at his high school fair well over 25 years ago that she painted). My husband has two cousins that are brothers: Huck and Tom Sawyer (I swear to goodness!). My doctor has a patient, 14 y/o boy named Thor. Man, what goes through new parents minds????? My son's name is Wade (old family name and also my husband is a river fisherman) and everyone calls him Wader. No sure if that is good or bad

    Thank you all!! That was REALLY funny to me, especially at 1am! :chuckle

    Now for the baby names : went to high school with a girl who named her baby Nevaeh (Heaven backwards) and my sister just named her baby boy Enten Van. Hmm, It'll have to grow on me!

    "Enten Van." Hmmmm. That would take a LOT of getting used to.

    Now--Van HALEN, on the other hand, would ROCK!!!! :Melody:

    There's a guy--a grown up now--who changed his first name, once he was of legal age, to "Trout Fishing In America" (because he was a huge fan of the late Richard Brautigan, and that book, by Richard B., was apparently one of his favorites.) I think he just goes by "Trout" these days.

    I actually think it is spelled Dorcas
    Dorcas is actually a name from the Bible... I have heard this name over and over, and until now, have never thought of how it might be construed....

    [QUOTE=ShandyLynnRN]I have a good friend that named her baby Corbin Bryce.... He has his daddy's name for the middle name, but I had never heard of Corbin.. sounds very distinguished.

    The strangest I've ever heard was Darkus River (can you guess the last name? Yep, waters)[/QUOTE

    I knew a nursing tech. named Darkus London. I think it is an interesting name.

    As I am sitting here thinking about these very interesting names and I guess I need to state that I have also given my daughter an interesting middle name. I could blame it on the epidural but the truth is I decided on the name while driving to the hospital! Her name is Madeline Elton Alexis (she has two middle names). She has a personality that can be rough and tough and does not take s*** off of anyone, so I have also given her the nick name Madeline Elton John Wayne. :chuckle

    She actually enjoys her odd middle name. In a sense I carried on a family tradition without thinking about it because I have a masculine middle name (ALEX) and my first daughter also has a masculine middle name (Aaron).

    as a labor and delivery nurse i have seen the name heaven quite a bit lately. i have known of two little girls named heaven nevaeh (pronounced neh vay uh) and a set of twins named heaven and neveah. neveah is heaven spelled backwards! :angel2:
