    I have heard a couple of unusual names. I remember one little girl named "Secret (first name) House(middle name)". A dr told of a woman naming her new little girl "Vagina". Imagine going through puberty with that one! I knew of an older lady with the name of "Lovey" (Her real name, not a nick name). I love names...the odder, the better. (But only in other people, I want me and mine to own nice,normal names.

    Many years ago I had the good fortune to work with Bill Haddon, M.D. Bill was an expert on alcohol-related accidents and auto safety; subsequently becoming the first head of the federal agency responsible for auto safety. When Bill was an intern at Philadelpha General and rotating through OB/GYN the hospital had a rule that mothers had to name their newly delivered child before leaving the delivery room. This particular woman, having just delivered a baby girl was asked "What are you going to name your infant girl?" Under the influence of anesthesia and compounded by hearing technical terminology bantered about the devlivery room, the woman said, "Placenta".
    Until your posting, this is the first time I've heard "Placenta" used to name an infant since Bill told me his true experience.

    One of the first babies I assisted delivery was named "Germ" by his Mom!! Poor little guy!
    One of my friends from High School named her first daughter Cadasta Castanada!!!! Poor child! I won't post her last name but it was very plain like Jones or Smith. Just didn't go together I thought!
    Twins in the hospital when my second son was born were named 'Knight' and 'Daye'

    Tequila Margarita because that's what she was drunk on when she got knocked up and she didn't know who the father was, either.
    One story I have heard is in a Central American country one was named Usmail after that pretty truck that brought her letters from home....remember that's OOS-my-eel if you pronounce all the letters the way they're said in Spanish.

    Oh, remembered another one. Twins named North and South (middle name). Dad was a twin and he and his sister had East and West already as middle names. First names were normal, thank heavens, but their last name was either Side or Ramp, it was a while ago...

    Back in the olden days before children were born in hospitals, it was apparently common to name the child after the midwife who delivered her. One unfortunate baby had her own enterage when she was born. Her name was Etheline Betheline Caroline Caterfish Valentine.

    My High school history teacher was named "Ultimus" because he was supposed to be the last child ( after 7 or so)... but it didn't turn out that way...
    But when I was a student, some of our patients asked us what to name the baby, & one of my classmates cared for a teenage mom who looked at the ID band and named the infant girl "Female"!!
