    That's exactly what I thought when I read that! I call my boys "sir" all the time...it never occurred to me that someone out there might think that was an actual name!
    My kids have all kinds of weird nicknames. I call River "Boat," which is just short for his OTHER nckname, RiverBoat. Someone out there probably thinks I named my poor baby "Boat."

    I once heard of a mom who named her child Nosmoking.....said it was the last thing she saw before her c/s. I also had a teen mom who named her child Margarita......(sad). I learned from many years working with new parents how to keep a straight face.
    Margarita means "daisy" in Spanish... so that may be why she did that. It's actually a pretty common name.

    twins named "Lucipher" and "Satan"- no kidding. No amount of visits from social workers, hospital admin, the state could convince mom to change her mind, poor babies

    My husband used to tell people we were naming our son lucifer. Kidding of course, his name is Michael.

    Hey, I had a great one during clinicals! I was checking on a patient who was being admitted to PP. I went in to check her and baby when I saw the cribcard. The name was La-a. "Oh my goodness, I thought to myself." So, I asked "How's little Laa doing?" She said to me, "That's not her name. Her name is Lahyphena." No sooner than I could say, "Spelling lessons in room 10, STAT!" she says to me, "The hyphen don't be silent."

    I remember another one from school that I heard from resident. Her residents friend's sister's plumber's car mechanic's doc's wife had a midwife delivery who named her baby "Ahquloitqkimberly." She asked, "How in the world do you pronounce that, like "Ah-que-liot-que-kim-ber-lee?" The mom looked insulted, and said, "Her name is Kimberly! The "Ahquloitq" is silent!" A-ha!

    Isn't silence golden sometimes?
