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

    Yup, To Kill a Mockingbird. A great, great book. Gregory Peck in the movie was awesome too.

    I had this tattooed mom came in, well her oldest child was named CHERRY, the next was TANGERINE, and the new baby was STRAWBERRY. this girl had total issues, and how lets their 12 y/o get an eyebrow and lip piercing!!

    Another one named her baby NAUTICAL bc she supposedly lived by the way, in Middle River- which is NOT on the water!

    I know a girl who named her son Lucifer, he was born on Halloween. (I SWEAR) A couple of the Catholic nurses were even crying. And of course she told everyone she knew me!
    Beautiful little boy thank God his family calls him Luey!

    Now that my second niece is born and has been named I can contribute to this thread.

    Dbil and dsil were expecting their first child a few years ago and sil was absolutely set on the name Lola Sage.

    All I could think of was the song by The Kinks where she " . . . .walks like a woman and talks like a man . . . . ." The lyrics to "Copacabana" don't help. Actaully, each name in and of itself isn't too bad (not my cup of tea, necessarily), but the two together . . . . .

    I also made the mistake of telling my brother who then started making fake strip-club announcements "Lola Sage, now on stage!" Thank God they changed their minds or I would be laughing at the poor child everytime I talked to her or saw her.

    The names they actually decided on were:

    Tess Eliza

    and

    Resse Aubrey

    A little different, but at least they don't sound like strippers or drag queens.

    I used to work with a guy named Jerry Derryberry. (You've gotta say it out loud to appreciate it)

    I just for the life of me, can't figure a new mom & dad w/the last name of Derryberry sitting in the hospital room with their adoreable new bundle of joy and saying "Jerry Derryberry" that's it, without thinking of the future ramifications... ha!
    There was a politician in Oklahoma a few years ago named Larry Derryberry.

    We had several in the small, rural Southern town where I lived. We had one baby who was named Oranjelo (orange jello). One baby named Formica, and finally, one baby whose mother could not get the baby's daddy to come and sign his name on the birth certificate (teenage dramady), who sent her baby's birth certificate in with the name 'baby boy Dixon'. I kid you not. This baby kept the name, Baby Boy Dixon. He is about 27 or 28 years old today, and has never changed his name from Baby Boy. This does not sound true, but it is, I promise....

    Ooooo! A fresh new one!! Haven't heard this one before. A couple names their child Yahoo! in celebration of meeting over the Internet. Just to give it away, like all the Lemonjellos, Orangellos, Females, Nosmo Kings out there, it's another urband legend name. Don't mean to spoil the fun, but I just wanted to nip this one in the bud as it's assured it will show up here eventually...

    About 40 years ago there was a politician (either state or local or maybe both, I don't remember) in my state whose name was Jack Ripper.
