What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 240

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

    My old college professor told me she knew of a set of twins that attended the school named...Orangejello and Lemonjello. Pronounced "o-RON-jello and Lim-ON-jello. Maybe that's what she craved, IDK. LOL

    I once worked in new baby registry and we had the following odd names:
    ABCDEF - Pronounced Absideff (She said she wanted her baby to be first in school alphabetically)

    TrueLuv - (Ohhh Teen Pregnancy)

    We had Triplets named

    Q-Trail
    R-Trail
    S-Trail

    I guess it was inspired by lord of the rings somehow.. I dunno.

    Minerva. That sounds like a birth control brand

    I think:
    #1 - If all the mythical "Lemonjellos" and "Orangelos" actually existed, then about 25% of the total population of twins in this country would be saddled with those monikers......the first time I heard that one was about 20 years ago, scrubbing with an OB-Gyn Resident and the attending, both from IU School of Medicine in 1991, and have continued to hear/see them recounted by a significant variety of occupations in several states.....
    #2 - The oddest twins names with which I have had direct personal contact (I scrubbed and assisted the C-section that delivered them about 1995) has been "Levi" and "Garret" - in combination, the name of a very old and popular CHEWING TOBACCO.....:rollseyes:
    #3 - The best twins names I have come across, heard directly from the mother and her nurse when I scrubbed a procedure for her, is "Melody" and "Harmony"! Gotta love such beautiful names for two beautiful little girls!

    Does anybody actually KNOW, personally, an adult real-life person named any ONE of the jello flavors?....And I mean with "jello" attached, not just a fruit name. Like, "Hi, I am Raspberryjello Jones" .And now that I'm wondering.....What is J-LO's real, I mean REAL name!

    I guess the mother of "ABCDEF" forgot to consider that names in school are alphebetized by LAST name! And even if they were done by first name, every "Aaron" will still be ahead on the list......
