    Besides - the child's FIRST name was supposed to be pronounced "Ab-si-def." No mention of the patient's last name was made.

    I suppose Turkeesha is lucky she didn't end up being Stuffinga.

    OMG!! This has been a great post!!! My only names that gave me pause were:

    #1 Lyrica... I explained to the 16 year old that it was a medicine for fibromyalgia, but she still liked it.

    #2 Thumbellina... hand of God... I had to call and make a newborn appointment for Thumbellina and reply to "How do you spell that?" without laughing!

    Oh, and my co-worker had an Abcd (abs-id-dee)

    My husband and I are both nurses and always said we'd name our kiddo Guaiac... all non medical people are like "oh, that's different, I like it!" We just laugh!

    Reader's Digest had a story about a microbiologist discussing in a humorous way all the bacteria in our environment. Near the end it talked about his family. His son was named "Escherichia." That's just discusting, naming your kid after a deadly colon bacteria.
