    Lyrica... I explained to the 16 year old that it was a medicine for fibromyalgia, but she still liked it.
    If it weren't for the medicine, I would almost kind of like that name!

    Another med I could see as a baby name? Januvia.

    I had a patient name her child "Lesbiana." I then had a patient named, "Psyche"-pronounced Sa-shay. I swear I learn something new everyday.

    As a paramedic, I delivered a baby whose mother wanted to name her Placenta. Transport was delayed so I showed her the afterbirth. Instant name change!

    SirDevious Knowledge- and I have only been on L&D for 6 weeks. It may be a while before that gets topped.

    Best one for me is my great aunt, Eula Lula. I **** you not. Her older sister was 3 when she was born and their parents let the 3 yo name the baby.

    I was named after a Louis L'Amour character (Codi) and my,then, 16 yo uncle's favorite actress (Brooke).

    I have spent my life explaining that, no, Codi isn't short for anything. Oy.

    Samara. It's a beautiful name, but they actually named her after the evil little girl in the movie The Ring.

    I had a classmate in nursing school named Samara (SAM-a-ra), and I'm sure that was a long time before the movie (in the 1960s).
    I haven't seen the movie and I like the name (as long as it isn't twins Samara and Tamara).

    There is a beach in Costa Rica named Playa Samara.

    Florida was one main characters in the 1970's sit-com "Good Times".

    I cared for for 50ish lady named "Queenie"

    Not saying those 2 other instances make those names common.

    I have yet to personally care for anyone with a Jello name.
