What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 273

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

    If you live in a small town, don't you think ridiculing your patients on a public web site is a bad idea? Especially in this context, of calling out unusual baby names of PATIENTS, who by the very nature of the unusual name would be easily identifiable. Patient names are PHI. All it would take is one person to utter the phrase "hipaa violation," to your employer, and your career would be over.

    We get kids from the NICU for open heart surgery and/ or ECMO. When twins are born over there, they are identified as (for example) Smith, Girl#1 and Smith, Girl#2. When they transfer to us (we are technically a separate hospital) their given name migrates onto their paperwork, but somehow, the number stays. So we have Smith, Mary#2.

    One of our intensivists called me and asked me something about Baby Smith, and referred to her as "Mary2 Smith- the '2' is silent" !!

    Not weird, but an annoying spelling variation of Peyton - Peightyn. Middle name? Sophyia. ****Staaaahp!

    Also, did anyone read about the lady who got arrested in Florida? Her name was Crystal Metheny.

    I have a friend who named her daughter Maybee Roux. Very different.

    Well, I don't live in a small town. If someone can figure out from my ambiguous screen name which state and city I'm in and which of the many hospitals I work for--and which one I *worked* for when said name was encountered--then more power to them.

    *shakes head* Gimme a break.

    So far I have heard the following from previously working in a birth center:

    Iluvya (pronounced: I love ya...)
    Chinesegirl (No, she was not Chinese)
    Mychoice (teen pregnancy)
    AND my all time favorite...

    Ta-ya and La-a (pronounced: TaDASHya and LaDASHa... You pronounce the dash.)

    My fiance and I decided we now have to carry on the tradition of abbreviation names and we shall name our future child....wait for it......

    # (Hashtag) Hahaha! (* [Asterisk] was a close second, maybe for a girl...) :P

    There is a physician named Jihad (first name) at a hospital here.

    The hospital is known for its billboards showing a patient on one side, and the physician who impacted their health on the other. I couldn't believe it the day I was driving and saw that they had made a billboard with him, including his full name plastered across it.

    Not for a girl! Asterix is the famous Gaulish warrior, and Obelix his sidekick. Anyone who's read the books will be asking her when she's going to whip out her magic potion!

    Maybe trying to get the message across that some Jihads aren't bad for you? Love to know what his parents had in mind for him, though.

    It has bad connotations in light of events in the last decade or so, but all "jihad" means is "struggle." I can't imagine naming my kid "struggle" regardless of the language, but maybe his poor mom had a hard pregnancy or something.
