    I have worked with a female nurse named Twinkle and a male nurse named Precious! I recently met a woman named Nova, wonder if her middle name was Gina?

    I kind of like the name Nova. I've heard of a few babies (and a couple of adults) with the name Precious. Twinkle is just cruel.

    Sorry, but some of you guys need to lighten up b/c you're trashing absolutely beautiful names. A few of them are over the top, but many are lovely & interesting. I don't understand why no one has a problem with very common, boring names for children. Why would I want my child to be yet another kathy, john, chris, sue, etc..? My kid is unique, hence the unique name.

    I also appreciate special names, but didn't you just do what you asked others not to do? You just trashed "kathy, john, chris, sue, etc..."
    Lighten up yourself, ok?

    My son goes to day care with a boy named Sir Derek. One must use both names when addressing him.

    Named my girls Justice Faith (8) and Gwenvieve Sara (17 months). I know alot of people like the names as well as not liking them, but I love them and think they are beautiful. (except I do regret it when this one boy named Will quotes the plrdge of alegience to Justice). The worst girls name I have ever heard was Dennissa, named after dad (Dennis).

    Wylde Flower; Peach Brandy; Shaunasee; George (female); Hannelore; Mickee (female); Summer Rain; Totsie; Novilla

    My sister always joked about naming her first born daughter "Darwina" (after our granfather, Darwin) Luckily, she had twin boys! :chuckle

    I'm sure there are more, but can't think of them right now!

    Our last name is Book and when I was pregnant with my daughter a friend suggested that I name my daughter----Rita Paige Book like "read a page book"

    I said NO WAY! LOL

    Dick Peters

    At a place I used to work I often walked past a chair with a man's name on it -- Dick Holder

    This day and age, I'd think 3 or 4 times before calling a child Dick

    There were triplets near where I grew up named Obie, Ocie, and Odie (all women). These seem harmless enough -- just different, not bizarre.

    I know of a family whose kids are Chayce, Caylob, Kyaleigha, and (can't remember the spelling -- pronounced Shyanna). I'm sure they thought Caylob more creative than Caleb, but when I see it I think K-LOB (as in something you'd do with a tennis ball)

    Knew a girl once named Taffelina (she was called Taffie)

    While in nursing school (almost 14 years ago) we did our OB clinicals at the local state hospital. A mother delivered a set of healthy twins and she named them: O'rangejello and L'emonjello.

    At that same hospital while doing clinicals in OB, we were assisting in a delivery and a mother gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl. We cleaned the baby up and placed the baby on the mom's chest for her to bond. The doctor tells the mom, "I am ready to deliver the placenta." The mom asked how to spell placenta, because that would be the baby's name!
    PLACENTA!

    We have many more, but thought that these were the best~

    We had a Mom that named her child Toyota Camry. No joke. We also had an Asian Mom (who did not speak English) that wanted to name her daughter Vagina. When our female OB, who is very straight foward, found out she went in and told the Mom she can not name her child that!
