What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 100

Hi, I was wondering about some of those weird names that you've probably encountered in L&D and PP. I remember when I had my maternity rotation a couple of weeks ago, one of the nurses said she... Read More

    I defy someone to top this one:
    Phantaysheia Shedollolorhonda

    It was a name I had to put on a birth certificate (I was preparing them back then), mom was a teen. I asked her what it meant...She chose Phantaysheia because she really like the movie Fantasia and didn't know how to spell it. PHAT was a big phrase at the time, soooo... Shedollolorhonda is a conglomeration of Sherman, Dolly, Loretta and Rhonda. All people in her family.

    Others that I have been flummoxed by:
    twins named Arthur James and James Arthur. Dad's name was James Arthur. The worst part, their older sister was named Samej Arthurine. Get it? ARRRGGGHH!

    Or the twins Norman and Namron

    Or Heaven and Neveah

    GHASTLY!

    I don't care if it's Jesus's nickname, her intention was to name him after the shoe brand.

    Her baby is also the result of a rendezvous with a carnie.

    Re James Arthur and Arthur James: Ann Landers was Esther Pauline Friedman--"Eppie"--and her twin, Abigail Van Buren (Dear Abby) was Pauline Esther Friedman--"Popo".

    That's been said quite a few times on this thread and on others.

    It sure has...You know, for as many times as I have heard of moms naming their baby Placenta, I'm wondering why I've never met any.

    Yep, but I'm sure you've met someone who's aunt's friend or daughters clinical instructor, or neighbors son has.

    I personally am waiting for the post where mom's name is Placenta, dad's is Nosmo King, and they're arguing over their twin babies-due in 2 months. Mom wants Oranjello and Lemonjello, but dad already has 2 sets of cousins with those names. Eventually, though, they finally settle and welcome little baby girl Vagina (pronounced, of course, vah GEE nah) and little baby boy Meconium. He's being welcomed home by big brother Shithead and big sister ******* (pronounced ah SHOLE ee). Mom's sister Clitoris is the God mother.

    Of course they're poor, minority, and teenagers.

    I think some people honestly believe they are being funny.. sad.. Like they take there last name and run w/ it.. I went to school with Apple Seed.. her sibblings included.. wait for it.. Pumkin, and Peach.. I know Peach's have pitts.. but it was so freakin odd...
    But what about when they name one a wierd name and the others normal..??? I know of twins, boy and girl.. the boy is named Kloud Skye but the girl.. Ann with no middle name!! And no, not native american.

    Don't hit me for calling these odd:

    family with Caylob, Chayce, Kyaleigha, and Cheyenna ... actually, I don't know how Cheyenna's name was spelled -- probably not that normal.

    family with boys -- Larry and Rick, girls -- Panda and Mitzi... I guess Mitzi isn't that unusual, but it sure seemed they picked on the girls.

    family with triplet girls -- Obie, Ocie, Odie -- for real, they would be about 90 years old now... but the last one died a few years ago.

    I recently heard about triplet girls named Hope, Tomorrow, Destiny. There must have been serious thought behind those names!

    I had a patient recently named Legna. I asked about the origin of her name. Her father (Angel--pronounced Ahn hel) gave her his name in reverse.

    My name is Oleta (rhymes with Lolita). I've never had another Oleta in class with me. I have met a few though. When I moved to Miami I found the Oleta River. (American Indian name)
