    My mom, who is a NICU nurse told me about this one.....Shithead. Get your mind out of the gutter, that's pronounced Sha-theed. She actually had to talk the parents out of it, apparently it took a lot of explaining before they caught on. Then last week there was a little boy whose parents had the brilliant idea to name him Sincere Lee. To me Sincere seems like it'd be a girl, if one had to use it for a name, but no. And then this isn't a patient, but I went to school with a girl named Candida. Nothing like being named after a yeast.
    I know someone who named their daughter Candida Boyle...

    As the patient was being wheeled into the OR for her c-section, the last thing she remembered seeing was a "No Smoking" sign. She named her child "Nosmoking." Pronounced "naw-smaw-king!!! I just hear that the other day!

I couldn't believe it that some child has to live his life named after disgusting afterbirth!!!

    A friend of mine is an Audiologist in a public hospital here in Australia, and she went to the waiting room one day, looked down at her patient list, and the next name she called out was....

    SHREK.

    Without a word of a lie.

    I know of some people with the last name Schreck, but that's not quite the same thing.

    I once had a mother who was the support person for her daughter while in labor. They were very proud of their names and the name they chose for the baby. The grandma's name was Moniqka (Mo-nik-a); the mommy-to-be was Cliniqka (Clin-nik-a); and the baby was to be Eueniqa (You-nik-a). They thought themselves very clever.

    We also had a spanish patient that named her baby Fe-Mal-e'.

    And once we ALMOST had another Spanish lady name her baby Meconium.....she kept hearing us say it while she was in labor....we had someone explain it to her and then she decided on something else.

    My patient the other day had quadruplets and they had the best names ever! The identical boys were Lemonjello and Oranjello. The other boy she named Shithead (pronounced Sha-th-eed) and the one little girl was Female (Fuh-MAL-ee). She had an older girl named Placenta and an older son named Nosmo. Her last name was King.
