    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 is a common name for girls in Spanish language and very beautiful. Lots of funny names here but that is not one of them. I like it.

    Here's one that has become legend.
    A young first time mom had twins, a boy and girl,both healthy, and the new little family was discharged a day or two later, while the mom was still mulling names over (This happened 20 yrs ago or so)
    About 6 mos from the time of the twins birth, a friend of ours who is a policeman happened to pull this mom over due to a minor infraction, perhaps a tail l ight was out. Anyway, he looks in the backseat, and there are these two adorable babies. He says to the mom," Cute kids, what are their names?" The mom saide," Mali and Fimali" The cop says, "You Mean Male and Female?" The mom repelied", yes thats right, those were the names on the bracelets after they were born, so I just decided not to change it!"""

    Montserrat, for a girl.

    Nice, I suppose, but she was in the NICU and someone made her a cute name sign. At first glance it looked like "Monster rat"
    This is a famous name in Spanish

    Louisa May. Okay, it's not a weird name, but I was asked by my pt to pick a nice name for her baby, and I named her after Louisa May Alcott. Just bragging.
