What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 34

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

    And speaking of that.. how many people do you know that give their kids all the same first letter?

    One of my best friends has Michaela, Madison, Macie, Molly and Merrick. I think it's too cute but I still can't help getting them confused. Something about all the M's that makes you have to think before you speak!

    As for me.. My first two babies ended up with Irish names accidentally, in the sense that we only realized they were both Irish after we had picked them (Kelsey and Sean) so when the 3rd one came I told my husband he'd better get an Irish name too. We named him Owen (which worked out as it also happens to be his paternal great grandfathers middle name). I always find it interesting to hear how people come about naming their children.

    My SIL was expecting a boy (at least according to the ultrasound) and when a girl was born she had no names at all chosen. She opened up a book at the hospital and the editors name was Rachel.. bingo.
    My step-sister named all of her kids with B names and all of their middle names are Lee. Their last name starts with a T, so all of their initials are BLT including her husbands! The youngest is named Brad, but they call him Braddy which sounds like bratty...poor kid.

    I knew a set of twins named Mercedes and Porsche. But they grew up in the projects and took a bus.

    I had a girl in my class named MyAngel. (She was far from anybody's angel).

    According to this thread, these are not unusual anymore. You are about the 58th person to attest to knowing of people with these names. Makes you wonder if its just a myth......

    It just sort of happened that way. :chuckle We liked Tanner, Travis was named after my brother. We thought about other girls names but Tatum was the only one we could agree on. And by the fourth, we couldn't switch the letter w/o having an oddball.

    We did the same thing with the kids - actually, I wanted them to have the same initials as their dad (didn't even want to go there with mine since I have {speaking of weird names} 5 middle names). So, both my kids and my hubby have the initials MLP. It actually worked out really good - they still have very traditional names, just similar initials. So I guess I can join the oddball club now myself. :chuckle

    I knew a set of twins in highschool named Ginger and Cinnamon. Bright redheads too - most popular. And that was 13 years ago. Perhaps it is the age of spices :-)

    I have five year old twin girls, when my husband and I decide to name them, we wanted something different, names that you do not hear of now, so we went with Veronica and Victoria, and now days those are different compared to what names children are given, at their birth the nurse that was there with me, said she had two sets of twins that one set of parents named them Peaches and Creme and the other set was named Peaches and Strawberries. Could you image a CEO or even a President that rules nations with those type names or even elderly with such names.

    I went out with a guy named Wrangler.

    My friend named her baby boy Climpston.

    I knew a sad young mom who was an addict and named her son Dylan Kane (dealing cocaine)
    I have a friend that named her child Dixie Mary Cilana. Cilana is not the last name, by the way. All the names are normal, but they just don't go together. She said she let her son name the baby---He's 8.

    I met a boy once named Samhouston. They just called him Sam.

    My best friend's husband wants to name their first son Dobbie, like from Harry Potter---And he is dead serious. I told her if he did I was going to get a life size cut out of the ugly little thing and put it in the baby's room, so he would know where he got his name from.

    On the initial thing, I had a boss who's kid's first initials are a,b,c in order of birth. Ashley, Bethany, and Christopher

    I used to work with a nonprofit organization and there were three elderly ladies on the board who were named *****, Kitty, and Bunny. I had a very hard time calling them by their first names. A 90 year old blue haired lady just shouldnt' be addressed as *****!

    My second cousin's name is Kaelyn Marie Reality Cech (pronounced check), at least her mother (my cousin) was able to convince the father to have 2 middle names so hopefully the kids in school won't get hold of it.

    I thought I was bad naming my son Wacey. I feel much better now.

    I know a lady, I think she is a Mayor of a small town in East Texas and her name is "Ima Hog"

    That is one set of mean parents right there.


    I do know a boy name O'rion, we call him Ryan.
