    I have had teenage patients name their baby girl "Nacirema" - American spelled backwards. Also "Jesus Christian Zion" Those were his first and two middle names.
    Oh no! This has got to me Nevaeh's little sister. Bound to happen. When they get older they can double date the Jello twins, with Nosmoking as chaperone. They'll go see a movie and L-a will take the tickets, and the mean usher, Shithead (really, he is) will catch them eating goodies that weren't but at the theater at a 400% markup. They'll have to go to supervisor's office, Ms. Placenta who feels inadequate since she lost her namesake around the last time she gave birth. She just feels so empty now.

    I'm with you on most of those - except Nevaeh. Since 2006, it's been in the top 1000 baby names (source).

    Yeah, I do about Nehaeh. I worked in NICU and it seemed that every baby was names "Nehaeh". And every blasted parent would say "My baby's name is "Nehaeh" that Heaven spelled backwards." And yes, this was in 2006'

    Not in my practice, but my husband is a teacher and heard of a family with boys named Orangelo and Yelogelo, and their sister, Cherigelo. Pronounced: Or-Ong-Jello, Yello-Jello, and Cheri-Jello. . OH! But I did have a family friend name their son, Braxton Hicks (First and Middle name) because they liked the way it sounded.

    No lie. I even checked his driver's license. This patient's name was...MAD BOMBER! I can just imagine him being paged in a major airport. "MAD BOMBER. PLEASE REPORT TO TERMINAL 14. YOUR PLANE IS BOARDING."

    I asked the more experienced nurses on my unit. There was a baby girl named Erotica. The nurses just called her Rose. Apparently, the mother eventually got married and her new husband convinced her to rename the little girl, now called Purity.

    Now, that doesn't surprise me at all. Braxton Hicks is a fabulous name. I am surprised there aren't more little Braxton Hicks's out there!

    Why bother having "Jordan" in there then?
