    Well I have said it more than once.......HUkd on Foiks Wurkd for Me.........
    sometimes it isn't so much the name as the spelling. Then the parents get offended when you have to ask them what it is they named the baby because you can't quite get Michael out of Mykale ..........Or even better yet when they select a name and then have to have you show them how to spell. Be sure and write in on at least one piece of paper for them so they will have somethign to work off of thill the birth certificate comes in the mail.:chuckle
    I found my childs name in the Bible, my daughter's name is Michaela (ma-kay-la), it doesn't sound like its spelled. But sometimes the spelling of a name reflects the beauty of the name as well.

    I work with people who have spouses who are teachers. Here are a few names of children they have had in class. Shithead, twins Syphyllis and Gonorrhea. Another friends daughter's college roommate was Raspberry and her sister's name was Snowflake.

    I had a nurse that help deliver my baby and her name was dorcus
    Just the other day, I was watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers on AMC, and Julie Newmar's character was named Dorcus. Definitely old-fashioned.

    Saw a arrest pic yesterday, first name, Primavera. Also came across a Urethra. Parents heard in in the delivery room & thought it was lovely.

    omg that is so funny about having to page over head. I'm an operator at my local hospital and I am constantly paging names overhead. I've had some really weird names, but the most memorable for me was Archangel. Yup. someone wanted me to page Archangel. i refused to page it. (well i had an excuse because they didn't know the last name). but still...who names their kid archangel? weird...

    i also volunteered on maternity for a while, and while i was folding clothes, i overheard one of the nurses saying that a woman wanted to be "original" and name her baby girl Nevaeh, which is heaven backwards. the nurse joked about how she's had several mom's "make up that name"...so it's not so original afterall...

    Her daugher with Lenny Kravitz is named Zoe. What a change here! That said, it sounds Hawaiian.

    I think "Nevaeh" is kind of pretty. It's usually pronounced na-vi-ah.

    A baby was recently born at my hospital and named Angel Nevaeh. I found out the baby's name when I saw her obituary 3 days later. Without going into too many details, she was not expected to live as long as she did.

    With every Neveah I've come across, the name was pronounced, "Nah--VEY--ah" or Neh--VEY--ah." There have been quite a few of them on our postpartum and NICU units, including several sets of twins called Heaven and Neveah. Many moms realize that the name isn't original (maybe because you see the name all over the place now), but there are still a few who think they made it up.

    Neveah isn't a bad name. Heaven knows , you could do a whole lot worse (and many have). It's just that I think the name is going to be the Jennifer of this generation with four out of fifteen girls in a classroom looking up when the teacher calls out, "Neveah." :angel2:

    These names are AMAZING! OK here's my contribution: (I don't know but I been told...)

    Excellent,
    Lovely. Saw this posted here before, but it still bristles. I'm sure the parents thought it was beautiful, like Bella maybe? What bothers me is the idea that the parents' first language was NOT English and that no one had the rocks to tell them "In theory that sounds good, but..."

    I loved the post about the rules!!!

    Weird names....

    My sisters and I went to school with a Candy Kain, April Rains, Sherman Tank, and a Crystal Surface...

    James Dean a groomsman in my wedding.

    Working as a School Nurse I have come across a few wild ones as well: Blazin' (apparently both a
    girl and boy name - I've had both), Daisy-Boo (middle name Heaven - kid you not), Lavender and Violet
    (sisters), Cobra, Poe'Nay. The worst one so far: Damian Lucifer (first and middle name - poor kid!)
    Oh, and I've had an Omer Omer (first and last name - no middle name). At first we
    thought it was a cultural thing - they had immigrated to our country less than ten years ago. But the
    strange thing was that the other kids in the family - older and younger - had distinctive and pretty
    common first names - maybe they just had "writer's block" the day he was born.
