What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 65

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

    I just started as a new grad on a L&D floor; a baby the other day was named Ziggy. Not too unusual, but so far that is the oddest one I've heard. I'm sure I'll hear many more unusual ones as the years go by!

    maybe the parents named their child after ziggy marley?? they might be into reggae?

    I've noticed increasingly over the years, normal sounding names, but spelled in a phoneticly, strange way,,,,sorry, nothing is coming to mind, but I bet you've all seen 'em.
    I work in OR, and our anes. docs cover epidurals. One anes. doc came back from childbirth center shaking his head the other day.
    The mother he just put an epidural in, said she was having a boy, and already had the name.....Sincere (sin-seer).......you guessed it....middle name LEE!!!
    I guess she has a girl at home...Deja.....drum roll....middle name..Vu !!!!!

    These people need to be drug out back, beat, and then shot!!!!
    Don't they realize the pain, and suffering these kids will likely endure.
    As parents we all want out kids to stand out, be something special, BUT kids,,,,,they want to be a part of the crowd!!! Not be apart like that!

    My oldest daughter is Miranda, we too wanted something that was not overly common, but not hard to pronounce/spell, and to make sure there were not five girls with the same name in her class. We named our second daughter Mikayla and now we're trying to come up with a third M name because I"m 22 weeks pregnant with my third girl. Any suggestions?

    Yeah, I'm hoping you put Miranda in with the other names just because she was part of the family and not because you think it's wierd.

    I love my name. It's normal enough that people can spell and pronounce it, but it's still rare enough that it's special.




    I got called Randy in grade school and I HATED it. Probably because there were three boys in my grade with the same name and they were all dorks.

    Now my only nicknames are Mir (rhymes with fir, not Meer like the space station) or Mirry. Didn't think about how it sounds like Murray until someone asked me if that was my real name. Oh well, it beats Randy, which your co-worker can have all to herself.

    Go to the SSA.gov website (Social Security Admin) and click on the baby names list. The gov't keeps track of names registered on SSN cards as babies.

    You can pick a year, like last year, and look at the top 1000 names of girls. That way, you can find a girl name that starts w/ an M in the 100-300 range: not uncommon, but common enough.

    Some "M" names in that range for 2005:
    90. Marissa
    92. Melanie
    104. Melissa
    (Miranda is 144; Mikayla 141)
    151. Margaret
    163. Mckenzie
    166. Mariana
    208. Mckenna
    218. Mallory
    239. Monica
    309. Melody

    How about "Marianne" - it is the french spelling.

    This is in response to the poster asking for names that begin with the letter "M".

    And yes, I did name one of my twins "Marianne Elizabeth", that is why I like the name so much.

    The name Mercedes has showed up on this thread several times as a strange name. Actually, among Hispanics the name has nothing to do with the automobile (the car was named after a young girl of Spanish background who had this name). The name refers to Santa Maria de las Mercedes, or Our Lady of the Mercies. It is an old Spanish name and is used often in both Spain and Latin America. Maybe in North American inner cities parents who name their child this (along with Pontiac and Lumina) are thinking of a fancy car but among Hispanics, chances are they are naming their girl after the Virgin Mary. I thing I also saw Pilar listed as an odd name. Again, it comes from a Spanish title of the Virgin Mary - Our Lady of the Piller.
