What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 121

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

    Just thought of some more:

    Had a delivery recently f/c named Darla to join sisters Daisy and Dixie. M/C Knowah (noah)

    Brothers Jayce & Jaylin (here is my brother Jay and my other brother Jay)

    My friend named Jodyna married a man last name Cody making her Jody Cody.

    Saw a special on VH1 about celebrity names for their children. A stand out was Ving Rhames' daughter Reign Bow, Reign Rhames?

    How about the name Dorcus or Morganna? Nicknames Dork and Morge.

    My advise to parents who ask.... try not to give your child a name she will have to spell for any and everyone forever.

    my favorites are

    a pair of female twins: Crimson and Clover

    and

    Baby Girl T-Rex (we werent sure if it was a first or middle name but does it really matter?!)

    I also visit a pregnancy message board and a mom recently posted some of her potential favorite baby names (these are for real):

    Boys:
    Gage
    Krew
    Tragen
    Declan
    Slade
    Talon

    Girls:
    Pyper
    Finnley
    Emerson
    McKinlee
    Brinklee

    I know some aren't horrible, but I think most are really really odd (and not in a good way)...

    I so agree with everyone who hates the Nevaeh name...had a pt who wanted to name her daughter that, but was quite upset that her friend had taken the name from her. And, yes, when she told me she said, "it's heaven spelled backwards." Anyway, the pt ended up naming her little girl Kaya (like kIya--long I). I think it's kinda cute, and not too popular...and thankfully NOT Nevaeh!

    My sister in law went to school with a girl named Fonda Dicks.

    Heard of a brother and sister named Tiago & Tarzana (must like Disney)

    Some people think my kids names are weird but I like them Gage & Zoie

    work on a postpartum unit in a large urban hospital. The trend I see (and cringe at) is the increased use of apostrophes and hyphens in names that are difficult enough to begin with. Examples; Ke'mareion, A'nillayah, De-quarius, and X'avierion.

    All i can think of is how much Kindergarten is gonna suck trying to learn to write those names! Do the name tags even come that long?? That is gonna be tough

    Today, we had a pt name her son Izzard (yes, like Lizzard without the L)

    Yesterday we had a pt name her daughter Shiann Desire (supposed to say like Cheyenne Desiree)

    I'm noticing that if you take a word and add La' in front of it, it becomes a "great" name! We recently had a La'Miracle

    A while back we had a child whose first name was Braxton and his last name was Hicks...yep, he was Braxton Hicks!

    Kindergarten will be bad but think about those cruel little middle and jr high kids and what they will do to the poor kids stuck with crazy names!

    Today I saw (thank God not a patient) a Clitaurus...Either the parents had a sex and astrology problem or they loved their car a little too mcuh!

    Orion - (baby boy) - ok, this one did have a romantic, constellation engagement story behind it, so it's not so bad, but still a strange, out-there name.
    I used to live in the Quad Cities, and there's a small town south of there called Orion, pronounced Or-ee-on. I know someone whose sister named her daughter that. Thing was, the girl was 15 when the baby was born, and there was a local news story from Orion and she asked her parents if she could name her child that. Her parents replied that it was her baby and she could name it whatever she wanted. Oh, and this was a middle-class family, and as they were leaving, one of the nurses said, "You know, most of the time, we don't want to send these babies home, but I look at your family and this baby will be raised in a loving home." When I knew this woman, her sister was in college and Orion even had a good relationship with her father, who was also 15 at the time, and his family as well. His relationship was initially like a big brother but had matured as he got older.

    "Orion" is an old song by Metallica that has been remade by an acoustic guitar duo, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and has been performed on a number of recent late night chat shows. Check them out on You Tube and be prepared to be blown away.

    I recently heard about a little boy named Ozzy. Not John Michael, which is Mr. Osbourne's real name, but OZZY.

    Your SIL must be from Moravia, Iowa. Fonda Dicks was a high school basketball legend in the 1970s.

    The first wave of these "ethnic" named babies are finding it nearly impossible to get jobs, and encounter enormous prejudice in other arenas of life.

    Sad but true.
