What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 118
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

On a side note, did everyone hear about the couple who wanted to name their child "4real"? They were denied because a name can only be characters, not numbers...some people just don't make any sense to me at all!
You forgot to mention that, at least according to the article I read last night, if the courts won't let them name the baby 4Real, they're going to name him Superman and just call him 4Real. You've gotta wonder what some people are thinking.
Aug 11, '07Thank you Arwen. By now the Orangejell/Lemonjello twins should be somewhere around number 500 on the top 1000 baby names list:trout:
Aug 11, '07We have a wonderful, cute 3 year old boy in our preschool who's legal name escapes me at the moment (it is unusual, but not "weird")...Anyway, if you ask this child his name he tells you "Number One" and holds up one finger. He really is adorable and most people DO call him Number One. He's at least the fourth child in the family, but he may be the first boy.
Aug 11, '07My cousin named her daughter Purpose Divine (first and middle)...tried to talk her out of it
Aug 13, '07When it came time for my hubby and I to decide on a name for my son he reminded me of a bet we made years ago about him naming our 1st born... His name is Willie Moon (will he moon) sometimes we call him Will(will moon)...Its a family name, so I guess if the others could make it through school, he can too.. He wanted to name him Neon or Blue
Aug 17, '07Quote from babynurselsaYou know that rings a bell. Is it Iceland? Anyway, there is a country where there is a government mandated list of baby names (including spelling!!!!) and the parents pick one. They don't get a choice. Hooray!!!!!Let's see there was Vinita (name of the town where the State Hospital was located), then there was Polaris (mom saw it on a sign), the twins named Sunny and Hunny(note the), many many Heavens, Heaven Leighs, Miracle (which is usually an oxymoron), Precious Angel, and Lovely.
I have formulated a set of rules I wish we could get legislated.
#1 If the child will never be able to say or spell the name.
#2 If the child will never be able to pronounce the name.
#3 If it will get them beat up at school.
#4 If it is just plain stupid.
Then we will assign you a name for your baby.
In ICU we have started keeping a list of the creative names. Had a Rikhi, Levhi, oh I can't remember the rest but there were about 5 kids, the mum said that she wanted all the kids to have interesting names and they had to have an h and an i. Ok.
We recently had a maximus. The parents said they got it off the Gladiator. Poor little bugger. And no, it wasn't shortened to Max.
Aug 17, '07Mom's favorite names from when she worked NICU were Millionaire Fontaine J.
She also said that there were twins there once who were given different last names than either the father, mother AND other twin.
Aug 19, '07Interesting spellings:
Aug 20, '07Going along with santhony's post, one of the current shuttle astronauts has theof "David" as "Dafydd." I guess his mom wanted a very different spelling. He goes by "Dave."
Aug 20, '07Quote from BabyRN2BeThis is the Welsh spelling of David. St. David is the patron of Wales. What is the astronaut's last name. That might indicate Welsh ancestry.Going along with santhony's post, one of the current shuttle astronauts has the spelling of "David" as "Dafydd." I guess his mom wanted a very different spelling.
