What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 144

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

    To me a "bad" name is first of all a name which will get the kid teased unmercifully. My son whose name is Alec had for a time a "bad name" when one of his Jr high classmates decided to call him "Alice"! Who knew?

    Other names are those made-up names no one can pronounce and those no one can spell. Worst of all, those no one can pronounce OR spell. And of course the names where the parents were being cute!! Some of those names would only be suitable for pets, not children.

    one time i remembered..it was a really boring day at the OB, the patient told me she wanted to name her baby 'compassion'. probly she's bleeding heavily that time to decide on that name...

    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.
    Um..I might be wrong...... but isn't Margarita a real name?

    Yes it is a hispanic name. Translates to Margaret in english, at least I think.

    OOO I remembered a few more Tyree (Ti-ree),
    That one has been around a long time; I remember a man by that name when I was a small child.

    ok TODAY my patients name was Tequila (claims her mom didn't know it was alcohol when she had her 18 yrs ago...the grandmother is an x-ray transported at my hospital) she had a baby today and that baby's name is..................
    Champane Maria Unique....but it's spelled different then the drink so it's ok. I told the grandma pretty soon they'd have to open a bar.....maybe she'll have a boy next year and name him Jose Quervo and be a friend of mine

    ANyone ever have a goth chick as a patient? They can come up with some good ones. Most memorable was a girl in my graduating high school class named her daughter "Shiktriga"-some kind of Romanian name for female vampire. When I worked in a peds office a local goth/heavy metal band member and his wife named their son Draven-after Jason Lee's character in The Crow. My 17yr old neighbor just told me she's pregnant and the father wants to name him Anakin Jedi So-and-So. She told me she's got better sense than that and wants to name it something more traditional. Here's hoping:uhoh21:.

    I have a few for you. I used to work in pediatrics and we got a lot of strange names.

    Special K (last name started with a K)
    Dominator
    Jake (pronounced Jakie, I didn't see the pink blanket until after I said Jake and started taking the family back into an exam room, parents looked at me like a moron, not my problem they wanted to spell it that way)
    Princess

    Also, my friend dated a guy whos name was Richard Wacker (not sure if that is the correct spelling of the last name), he was like third or fourth generation Richard Wacker.

    My mom knew someone named Dorcus and Dotcom (again, not sure about the spelling).
