What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 238

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

    Le-ah
    Lemonjello
    Orangello
    Meconium
    Female
    Abcde

    I highly doubt these are more than an urban myth they've been repeated so often but you never know. So I think the new rule should be unless you have seen this WITH YOUR VERY OWN EYES BECAUSE YOU WORK IN OB and actually took care of a child (and I mean hands on care) with one of these monikers please refrain from perpetuating the story. Carry on!
    You forgot Shithead (Sha-theed), that one gets mentioned pretty often too.

    My favorite was a boy, whose parents were stock brokers.. "Trayden Cash". It still makes me giggle.

    So, I'm not an OB/GYN, and this was no baby, but I met a girl named "Shatiqua".

    I wanted to name my son Ridley(it was my Grandpa Riddlehoover's nickname and he passed away while I was pregnant), unfortunately my son's last name is Scott and of course the only other Ridley I know of is director Ridley Scott. So I made Ridley his middle name and made Orion his first name.
    I was actually surprised to see "Orion" listed on here quite a few times! I think it's a beautiful name and I figure he can always go by Rion(Ryan) if he wants when he gets older. My mom's afraid he'll be teased about "having a constellation on his face" if he turns out to be as freckled as his father


    To add to the unusual names, I've heard about a set of brothers in the area named Truly, Sincerely, and Nozzle!

    my husband volunteers in the summer with a ym enrichment program for kids ages 7 - 12. one boy is named "spencer" and nicknamed "spenny."

    what makes that so funny (at least to us) is that we rescued two cats whose names were spenny and kenny! our vet said those names were so close that a mistake was just waiting to happen. sooo...
    we began calling spenny "spencer" sometimes.

    strange!:d

    I was really surprised when I worked at a girls' camp this summer how many boys' names I saw on the list. Some names can easily go either way, but others I think are a little too masculine for these little girls. Ryan, Dillon, Tyler, Spencer, Logan, Michael, Shawn. My favorite was Miles. Who named this beautiful little girl Miles?

    I was watching a PBS show about genealogy a few days ago, and one of the people they profiled had an ancestor named Mellitus.
