    "Chlamydia" The only thing I can think of is that She thought we were calling the baby by name when we told her "she has Chlamydia". She was hispanic. It's actually a pretty name...LOL!

    I would have to have my name changed to dickson or something. That is terrible. I feel sorry for people with those kind of names that make people snicker even though I am guilty of snickering. It is totally juvenile but I cant help but chuckle when I hear of someone with the last name Butz or Buttigan--real names--I have heard both.

    At least his parents didn't name him "Harry"!

    I've never understood why people will name their kids something that's a part of the last name, too. I know guys named things like Don Amidon and Richard Ritchie. Did ya really love your last name so much that you had to give it to your kid TWICE???

    I kid you not, before I became a nurse, I answered telephones and entered data for customers. One day a member called, and his name was Dixon Cox. Seriously.

    I called him Mr. Dixon and he corrected me, saying his name is Mr. Cox.

    I am in Kansas City and my son told me he went to school with two males named Orangejello and Lemonjello. What factors contributed to this burden this boys must shoulder the rest of their lives?

    Those two names have been on every "weird baby name" thread here . . . . .and they are from racist humor, dating back to 1917.

    ACK!! The Jell-O twins strike again! They come up every one hundred or so posts. Everyone claims it's true, that a med student saw it, a "nurse friend" saw it, a kid at school hear it... it's always a "friend of a friend" type thing. I'm with Snopes in that it did not happen... intentionally... ie - someone saw it on Snopes and decided it'd be a cool name for their twins.

    Ah, nostalgia... reminds me of when I was pregnant and I told everyone that I was going to name my little girl either Orangejello or Lemonjello, depending on what I was served at the hospital.

    Have you all seen the latest name from snopes? How is this pronounced: Le-a. It's not "Leah" or "Lay-a", it's Ledasha. Legend (and that's what it is) has it that the birth certificate coordinator came upon this name at the hospital and asked the mom how little "Lea" was doing. The mom, quite upset at the mispronunciation, says, "It's Ledasha. The "dash" isn't silent." Boy, they're getting more creative with these names.
