What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 251

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

    I know! Let's come up with a local/state/federal law +/or constitutional amendment regarding the naming of babies!

    (you may now say 'TSK!' and roll your eyes.)
    From 2008 in New Zealand, the parents lost custody of the little girl when she wanted to have her name changed from "Talula does the Hula from Hawaii" because she was too embarrassed about her name.

    Some other names that were allowed however were Violence, Midnight Chardonnay and Number 16 Bus Shelter.


    I know a couple of people who hate their first names, and go by their middle names or other names entirely. One RT because she says "I am not a male deer from a Disney movie or a porn star!" Another just flat out refuses to state what her name is.

    my husband was named for his two grandfathers and his name is herbert william. he has always hated the name herbert and tried all the way through public school to use some variation of william,
    but his parents were adamant that he was herbert and would use a version of that name. he still loathes his name because he says it's an "old fart" name and people never expect who they get.

    my dad was named for his grandfather. aside from the fact that he said "charles" conjured up an image
    of a sissified fat kid in a velvet suit and a silk shirt, worn with long stockings, and patent leather pumps, which was bad enough, he and his grandfather lived in the same town and their mail got mixed up, once my dad was old enough to get any.

    what's the answer? i have no idea whatsoever. maybe to just call all kids "hey you!":d

    They would probably name their children John and Mary.

    Have you ever noticed that folks who will name their kids the most unpronounceable mangle of letters will name their pets "normal" names -- woman I used to work with named her daughter Kalisandreiaaure. Kid you not, and I'm going for the phonetic spelling, God only knows how she actually spelled it. Name of their tomcat? Sam. Go figure.

    Her daughter had her name legally changed to "Callie" in college. I don't know how you'd have gotten that onto a diploma....
