What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 128

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

    By far, the worst name I have ever heard was a mother who was going to be naming her child "Chlamydia". Even after another RN explained to the pt the medical definition of the word. Poor child....

    :icon_roll OH Boy, where do I begin? These are all really names, not urban myths. I've worked mother/baby the past 7 years and actually spoke to the parents or saw the following birth certificates:

    Abcde (pronounced ABB-SID-EE).

    Grinnen Barrett (1st and middle name)

    Alaris (The manufacturer of our IV pumps)

    Brenna and Brinna (twins who were later probably referred to as
    "hey You" by the mother.)

    Nosmoking (pronounced NOS-MO-KING)

    Maybe we should require mom to be free from narcotics to name their children!

    Hi-

    I'm not an OB nurse, and these are not patients, but actual people I know-

    I actually know TWO women named Crystal Claire Waters!

    and I had a friend who grew up hating his parents for naming him Jay, a relatively normal name, but his last name was Walker. When I heard he was having a son, I figured, he'd do a better job. I was relieved to hear the baby's name was Luke. Until I heard his middle name... I kid you not, "Skye". There really should be laws against this kind of child abuse!

    I wasn't sure whether to post this here or under the thread with funny names for nurses.

    While doing my clinicals last semester I worked with Dr. Candice Dick. I went to the AMA site to see what her real name is and it is.......Candice Delite Dick (yes she is often called Candy)

    What were her parents thinking?
    Probably that she'd do well as a stripper!!

    Wouldn't it be cool if her surname was Song or Storm?

    The town next to mine prints the names of new babies in our newspaper, and several babies from this town in recent months have been named Aryan . I'm assuming it's pronounced A-ryan, but I just can't imagine an L&D nurse not knowing what that word means and advising the parents against it. There have been a couple of Aryannas as well.

    And no, it's not Aryan Adolf or Aryanna Evabraun or anything like that. We have a lot of meth in this area but I'm not aware of any white supremacist enclaves in the region.

    We recently had a patient named Tyler in the CVU. I did a double take, then noticed he's elderly. Wasn't expecting that.
