    I am not an ob nurse, I work at a college and some of the student names... well.... let's just say thewy qualify to be on this list:

    Early Ledbetter (this makes me think of Early Bed-Wetter???)
    Iei Sar Blue (eyes are blue?)
    Richard Bonnir ("Dick" Boner -I know it's not pronounced boner but it's too close- you'd think someone would avoid nameing their child anything that sounds like a nickname for genitals)
    King Charles (at first I thought that they'd typed the label backwards- but it really is first name King last name Charles)
    Elrick Delrick ?
    Granville Handy
    Rosezetha (pronounced Rosita)

    The most bizarre name I've encountered so far was the name Aejeh (pronounced AJ).. The poor kid is always going to have to spell his name because people will think it's AJ (like it should be!)

    I would just die if this was my name.

    Well, if it's Spanish (Kon-sep-see-own) it's not so odd. I wonder how she pronounced it?

    She is not Spanish, she is a white girl and she says it exactly how you would say "conception".

    I saw in the newspaper that a local couple named their son Jericho. I wonder what their favorite TV show is?

    Then I agree--that's weird!

    That brings up another topic--pronunciation. I once knew a girl named Mercedes--pronounced MER-se-dees
