    And then this isn't a patient, but I went to school with a girl named Candida. Nothing like being named after a yeast.
    This name, pronounced can-dee-da, is a common Hispanic name, and was a hit song by Tony Orlando.

    Currently while in nursing school I work at place where people can drop their children off to workout. The best was a child named La-a. Sometime when we're unsure how they spell it (since it's difficult to find someone to spell even common names in the normal fashion) and she said "It's spelled La-a. The dash is included in her name - LaDasha." Really? Also, a friend who is about to become a elementary school teacher went to a class and had a child named "Pebbles" - her name was actually that. Some of the other good ones from my job:
    Breezy (not a nickname)
    Phabian (Fa-be-in)
    Jediah (pronounced Jedi - which I kind of liked)(foreign)
    Dara (Dar-uh and her brother freaks out if someone says Dare-uh)
    Vatima (foreign)

    Guys no joke I had a 16 yr old with her 3mos in my clinic and the baby's name was Dolly, which is cute but the girl said she named her that "because she's my very own babydoll!" Sad isn' it?
    And I wonder, does La-a (Ladasha) have a brother named Le' (Lemark)?

    Oh No! Okay, a high school buddy of mine named her son
    Jaguar De-La Soul. I tried to tell her not to. Her son is very intelligent and is now in college on an Academic Scholarship. FOr Christmas, he wanted his name changed.
