What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 2

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

    Nothing totally bizarre, just lots of stuff I couldn't even spell to post here.

    However, the entire time I was pregnant, my hubby stated that if it was a girl, he wanted to name her "Content". (as in happy, satisfied).

    Okay, the lady who was in the room with me when I had my older daughter named her son Country Joe.

    My hubby does social security disability and he SWEARS that he PERSONALLY has seen people named Lemonjello and Orangejello (pronounced le-mohngello and or-ahngello). I don't know.

    My daughter has a friend named Orion. All I can say is that his parents were way cooler than we were!

    Oh! And I took care of a lady in her 80's whose name was Lola Dimples. Can you imagine? I told her she must have been the cutest baby in the world to have been named that!!!

    Love

    A couple we know named their sixth child PATIENCE, with that spelling too. They found out they were expecting their sixth child just before he left for Saudi Arabia back in 1990. The woman had to single handedly take care of her pregnant self and five children the entire nine months of her pregnancy. She said she needed LOTS of Patience which is why she decided to name their baby girl Patience. Isn't that the sweetest thing!

    Let's see there was Vinita (name of the town where the State Hospital was located), then there was Polaris (mom saw it on a sign), the twins named Sunny and Hunny(note the spelling), many many Heavens, Heaven Leighs, Miracle (which is usually an oxymoron), Precious Angel, and Lovely.
    I have formulated a set of rules I wish we could get legislated.
    #1 If the child will never be able to say or spell the name.
    #2 If the child will never be able to pronounce the name.
    #3 If it will get them beat up at school.
    #4 If it is just plain stupid.
    Then we will assign you a name for your baby.

    I once heard of a mom who named her child Nosmoking.....said it was the last thing she saw before her c/s. I also had a teen mom who named her child Margarita......(sad). I learned from many years working with new parents how to keep a straight face.

    My (chemist) bro insisted he would name his children Chlorine, Florine, Bromine and Iodine. He didn't (wife may have had something to do with that)

    Precious was also the name of the poodle in Silence of the Lambs.

    When I was a student nurse, I was working Mother/Baby during a clinical rotattion. I had just taken a baby in to her Mom to be fed when the lady from the Health Dept. came in to register the birth. As one might expect, the mother and father were not married, in fact the father was a "sperm donor"- a non participant in this baby's life.
    When the Health Dept. lady asked the mother for the baby's name, she said ( I SWEAR!) "I don't know how to pronounce it, but I made it up, and I have it written down." She then reached into the drawer of her bedside table and pulled out a small piece of notepaper. On it were 23 DIFFERENT LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET! The lady asked her if this was the name she wanted for her child on her birth certificate, and the mother said "yes." The lady dutifully copied the letters down.
    If I hadn't seen this with my own eyes, I never would've believed it! Can you imagine the nickname the mother probably gave the child...ABC?
