What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 148
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
Sep 5, '08A friend of mine works with children in a social service agency and has come across some weird names. One family had four boys: John Jr., Jonathan, Johnny, and John-John. These were the actual names on the birth certificates. Guess what dad's name was? Guess how big dad's ego was?
Another one: Bayarea, perhaps not so bad except that they lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, locally referred to as the Bay Area.
Sep 6, '08Samiracle (like it's a miracle)
Secret Love (On the US, the baby's fingers were doing the sign language for "love", so the parents thought it was a secret message to them...LOL)
Kunta Kinte (Yes, they were African Am...what a sad name...if you've ever read Roots)
Jezzeriah (just think how many fights this boy will get into...shoulda just named him Sue!)
Baby Girl A-Havana BabyBoy B- Memphis
I'm sure I have more, but these are the ones that stick out!
Sep 15, '08Scary to think my parents put 2 names in a hat and DID NOT draw 'Candida Marie' out. They pronounced in 'Con-DEE-dah'. My nickname would have been 'Candy'.
Whew! Dodged that bullet!

Sep 19, '08I guess there are three that stick out in my mind: #1 Eko XXIV (this was a good one with the vital statistics people who did not want to allow a roman numeral for a middle name but the parents got it through), #2 Record for a boy and #3 a teen mom's little girl Strawberry.Last edit by momsnbabes4me on Sep 19, '08 : Reason: oops

Sep 21, '08Quote from VSRNI 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.
Margarita means "Daisy" in Spanish. It is a common name in Mexico.
Oct 3, '08Some of the funniest names I've heard are:
Pirate Packer (1st and middle name)
Ima Swanger (actually pronounced Swan-gur)
Nevaeh (Heaven spelled backwards)
Daisha pronounce Day shuh
also had a step sister once named Silver HillLast edit by NurseAlwaysNForever on Oct 3, '08
Oct 6, '08I was floated to nursery the other night and we were talking about this because a pt had named her child Shithed (pronounced something different than how it was spelled but come on people!!!).
Another nurse had a pt name her twins....
(pronunciation Li-mon-gelo), with the o having a long sound, but spelled Lemonjello
and her twin you guessed it, Orangejello pronounced Or-an-gelo, with a long a.
These poooooor kids.
Oct 6, '08We have a pt on our floor now named Fairy (60 y/o female) . Poor, poor woman having to go through life named that.

Oct 6, '08I was in my small town clinic today, and the medical asst. just calls out the name and you go in to see the doc. anyways, she calls " Echo Rain" and a young mom with the cutest little 3 or 4 year old boy went in. Sad...... He wasnt native american or anything- at least he didnt look it. blonde hair and cute.
