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

    Hi, working in mental health there is a high percentage of people that present that have unusual names. There is a pattern emerging where certain names will have a certain diagnosis. The deciding factor is the parents who undoubtedly have control over the child's upbringing and development. Food for thought when you pick a name for the child.

    Um, which names in particular. When me and my husband have kids I wanna make sure I don't use them! I am really superstitious so I wanna know!

    Just had to post some of the strange names I've seen

    *Went to hs with a girl whose last name was Hymen (and pronounced that way)
    *little girl named ayden (love the name but for a girl???)
    *cousin whose initials spell out "GAP" (not intentional either)
    *My dad almost named me "Nikita" (after the Elton John song) but Mom vetoed it
    *Dad also wanted to name my brother "Tyrone Obediah"
    *Brother's friend is so sick of seeing spellings that don't match pronunciations that he's actually threatened to name his son "Bench" and tell people it's pronounced "Steven"
    *Went to school with a brytni (pronounced "Brittney") and a Rex (good thing he was popular--the guy was so tall and huge that his friends nicknamed him "Ogre")
    *My grandmother has come across people with the following names (that she likes and wants me to use for my kids): Eternity, Trinity, and Serenity.

    Hey, had I been a boy I WOULD have been named Elton John. No crap! Instead, since I turned out female, I got Joni, after the Canadian folk singer Joni Mitchell. Can you say hippies? I absolutely hated it when I was a kid, because it was so unusual, I often got called John-e, but now as an adult I actually like that I'm named after someone as talented and creative, too bad none of that came along with the name.

    Here are my favorites from over the years:

    "Q" --baby boy, brother named Michael

    Prince --mother's name was Princess

    Preciousangel Quaanika

    Smith and Wesson (brothers)

    Nu' Passion and Nu' Miracle --twin sisters. Mother had originally named baby A Nu'Miracle and baby B Nu'Passion, but switched them around when she realized that the "passion" came first and created the "miracle"--no I'm not kidding.

    Brack

    Kora Vette (first and middle)

    As far as the Lemonjello and Orangejello--we had a set of twins born in our hospital with those names!! They moved to the St. Louis area and my mother has a colleague who taught them in her classroom. They are recorded in our NICU patient book. No keyboard eating here!

    I will post more when I think of them.

    I heard of a girl named Female, pronouned like Emily but with the F. Her mother thought the nurse named her baby for her & thought it a cute name. This just proves that cousins should never marry.:chuckle

    No kidding. Poor, poor kids. Both of my children have very old, very traditional names with no funny spellings (Michael and Monica) - and the funny thing is, EVERYBODY loves them. I get more compliments on those names spelled traditionally than any of my friends' children with bizarre names do. I especially love when the elderly ladies stop me in Wal-Mart and ask my daughter's name - I tell them what it is and they just get all gooey and excited - it's so cute - funny thing is, they actually THANK me for giving my children "real" names (according to them) - never in my life did I think I would get thanked for naming my children something. They just love it because it's something they would have heard prior to this weird name trend.
