    Not sure of spelling, but something like Ameelyonneire, pronounced "a millionaire". (on purpose, they thought they were creating a self-fulfilling prophecy).

    While in a Florida nursing school during our L&D rotation, a newborn was named Profit. His new mother could not spell Prophet.
    That reminds me of the girl I used to work with whose name was spelled "Daniel", although it was pronounce "Danielle". Her mother misspelled it on the birth certificate.

    My husband went to school with a boy named Peter, which is not a bad name. The problem was that his last name was Eder, pronounced "eater." I guess the parents didn't put the names together.

    Stank.

    Parents did not have a name picked before the baby was born. When they changed his first diaper, they said it "stank".

    Come on, people!

    Some of these are Urban Legends that have been around a lloooong time! Check them out yourself on Snopes and Urban Legends websites

    Before anyone posts this one (maybe I should have read the whole thread before I say this) let me tell you that the newest "name story"

    "I heard from a friend of mine who works regeistering new patients that a lady got really mad when no one could pronounce her daughter's name. It's spelled Ja-ia. People were saying JAAYa JayIA, none of it right. The mom said "Her name be JA DASH I A...that dash don't be silent"."

    This one is both a legend AND racist so it's a double whammy.
    I'm failing to see the racism.

    One of our techs who's been there for years swears that we had a baby boy named "Sh*thead" (pronounced "Sha-TEED"), but actually spelled just like the cuss word. I'm hoping that when the birth certificate was filed they vetoed that one...
