What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 178

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

    Years ago I worked in an pediatric out-patient/specialty clinic environment. I ran across some unusual names, but this one took the cake! One of our regular patients was Iwillariseandmeetjesusinthemorning (one word). Of course, the name she went by was Iwilla. I often wondered what became of this little girl!
    I just googled that name, to see if she came up anywhere on the internet, and it came up with this post already. Google is FAST!!!!

    Here in just a couple of years, any kindergarten in the nation will get responses from at least half the class by calling:

    Nevaeh

    Jaden (Jayden, Jadyn, Jaedn, Jadn, Jaeden, Jaedan)

    I don't dislike these names, I just don't think parents trying to be unusual realize how common they are.

    You missed one... I personally know a boy named Jaden but spelled Jadden. His brother is named Justin but spelled Jesten.

    In both cases the parents pronounce the name the way the "normal" spelling would be pronounced. I don't think they even realize that their sons, phonetically, should be called Jadd-Den and Jess-Ten.

    The other day we had a checker in Wally World who was a nice, but awkward young man who looked like he wasn't yet comfortable with his newly-tall (6'2" or 6'3") body. Very helpful and kind, but hunched over and jerky with his movements. He also had a strange kind of haircut that left him looking out between long, stringy bangs. I think his name would have been pronounced Jared, but it was spelled Jarred. As in given a good jolt. As in had his bell rung. As in stunned.

    I said to dh that it was an unfortunate variation considering his rather shell-shocked appearance, and he agreed.

    I get that people want to be original, but it doesn't always work out the way they planned.

    I had a patient named Velvet Lace and her older brother was Jesse James. My kids are named Drake and Josh (I had them way before the Nickelodeon show) and we always get strange looks from people.

    I have a friend whose mother named her Listerine and her sister Lavoris

    Must have been a bad-breath day. I call my friend Lissy because she has issues with her name and her sister ... I call baby sister. Nether like their names.

    our dog's registered name is about a foot long but his call name is "manfried mann" after the '60's rock singer but we call him "mannie" or "manwich." this a very small and rural area and by the time you've walked your dog a few times, everyone knows the dog's name. my husband came back from this morning's walk shaking his head. a woman stopped them and told him about her brand new grandson.
    name ...?? manfried. yep. after you-know-who -- our wrinkly fur kid.
