What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 183

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

    My husband and his friends used to joke that one of them should name a future offspring "Excretia", to poke fun at all the nonsensical names of this day and age.

    I had a patient who named her little girl Catellia...Yes it sounds like "Can't tell ya." When I asked her what the baby's name was she stated Catellia (of course I thought she said can't tell ya) and I said "Why?" She said no, that's her name.......I felt horrible!!!!

    Ok here is one that I picked up when I worked in childcare ...There was a little girl her name on all of the paper work was La_a. No one new how to pronounce it when her mother was asked she replied very angrily "the dash aint silent".....the childs name is La(dash)a as if that is not bad enough but to spell it with a line.. or dash as she considered it.

    No offense to the person who made this post, but, along with the Jell-O twins, Female, Nosmo king, and a number of other names that have curse words in them, La-a is largely an urban legend and has been mentioned at least half a dozen times in this very thread. The common denominator is that the mother speaks poor English and is angry that she has to explain the child's name.

    At any rate, the name would really be La-hyphen-a.

    My sister named her baby Baiyleigh (pronounced like Bay-lee) Rae (ray). I had a child in my toddler class whose name was Preciosa, and I went to school with a girl named Tequila.

    My daughter's name is Hannah, and when we picked it out I wanted something that would be cute for a 2 year old but still appropriate for a 40 year old to put on a job application.

    OK, have a new one for you guys!! and I can absolutely swear it is true. I only make fun of it because the dad was such an arrogant jerk, it took every ounce of will power not to crack up!
    Boy and Girl twins, named baby girl "America", told me that dad came up with both names and named her that since the baby boy was ALSO named after a country----baby boy "LUNDYN"
    HAHAHAHA, laughed my butt off on the way home. it's bad enough he thinks london is a country, and then that spelling?? We so need to come up with some mandatory parenting and basic education classes for some parents that start as early in these pregnancies as possible...even 9 months! I have also taken care of an ABCDE (prononunced AB-SID-DEE) and thought my 15 year old patients baby "Abstidee" (never saw her spell it), she explained she named the baby after the word abstinence...to remind her friends!!! She actually walked the halls laboring in a shirt that said "true love waits" on the back, We cracked up when one of the nurses said "of course she's here, only the girls walking behind her got the message! LMAO, funny but in a so sad its true way!

    A coworker named her daughter Crymson Tyde, the other 2 children have similar names, but at the moment, I can't think of them.
