    I once heard of a mom who named her child Nosmoking.....said it was the last thing she saw before her c/s. I also had a teen mom who named her child Margarita......(sad). I learned from many years working with new parents how to keep a straight face.
    i think margarita is a spanish name, a cousin of mine has that as her middle name. that is, unless the mom actually did name her after the drink.. call social services

    We've had a few lately......

    Silver Moon (his mother was smokin' a little more than Menthols- IMHO!

    Cillian (also a boy, pronounced Kil-ee- un) with twin brother Garret.

    Years ago, my father had a customer named Homer Queer- that's the God's honest truth!

    And, always my favorite- a friend of my mother's is Mary Sowerbutts- everyone calls her Mrs. Bitterbottom!!! LOL

    In my OB clinical rotation, I had a patient who already had a daughter named "Diabolique" and was naming her new baby "Keviana"......it was hard to keep a straight face. Poor children.

    I once heard about some Thai refugees, whose names were about 20 letters long, who had a baby and named him Ronald Smith.

    He was their baby; they could name him whatever they wanted.

    We once had a mentally ill pt name her child Buddha Armageddon....No, I'm not kidding. And suprise, the next year she had another child and named this one Dios Todo Poderoso....which means "God Almighty" in spanish......I'm not sure if any of these actually made it on the birth certificate but yikes!!!

    syphillis (si-phill-is) and gonorrhea (gon-or-ah) are right up there with "lemonjello" and "orangejello" ...............

    oh dear........my husband just read to me from the newspaper about a young (25 year old) local woman who is being charged in connection with the near-drowning death of her 3 year old daughter in a bathtub while mom watched american idol - and the poor child's name is "sirius" - like the constellation, or the radio service.........btw, mom says the prosecuter's story on what happened is not right, but she's not telling anyone her version because she's not being paid for her story by anyone in the media...........and she has 3 other children, ages 1, 5 and 7............poor kiddos, no matter what their names are.......

    Saw this in the ER a few days ago.... mother named her two children (one was 29mos the other was 18 mos) The older boy was Dukey... yup, Dukey.... the little girl's name was Tommygirl, spelled just like that... I was amazed, until I saw mom By the way, she referred to her daughter as "Daughter." Perhaps she wasn't in her right mind when she named them???? perhaps???? I know, I'm terrible... but I just can't help myself sometimes.

    There is a couple at my church who are emigres from Togo, and last year they had twins, a son and daughter, Their middle names are their native language's words for "God is great" and "God is good." The first names are English-language names.
