    I worked at a hospial in Indiana where a woman from Africa ( An exchange student from Perdu's wife) named her baby Mechonium. The baby had some thin mech at birth and that is when the women heard the word for the first time. The RN's and ward clerk tried to talk her out of it but she said that nobody she knew would know what the word really ment and she thought it was pretty. To each their own!

    I have a Mason(boy), Madison(boy), and Makenzie(girl). If I had another girl(which I'm not) I like Maegan(spelling is weird, but I have all Ma's going) I also like Mallory but one baby book I read said it meant "bad omen":smackingf There is also Madeline (Maddie), Macy(I have a neice named Macy Kate and her 3 year old brother calls her Messy Cake...too cute!) and Mollie. All cute and not overly popular(around here at least)

    In my part of town the powers that be will refuse a couple the right to name their baby an odd name.

    Ivory has been refused. This could be good but it also is bad practice.

    This thread was sooooooooooooooo funny...:chuckle

    Mind you they have normal nick names, but a friend of the family named her children Nation, Allegiance and Justice and they go by Nate, Allie and Jesse.

    Just this week I met a patient who named her baby boy Jermany Dragon (middle name). He was lucky, he only had two names, while his siblings have four names!!

    If some "power that be" tried to tell me what I could or could not name my baby, there would be big trouble. That is not legal!!!!

    In the community where I used to live, there was an older lady named Baby Girl. The story goes, her mom saw it on her first birth certificate and thought they had already named her so she never changed it.
    Years ago I had a set of twins named Mercedes and Porsche. (girls)
    Also a girl named Syphillis pronounced sih PHYLLIS

    The guy that grew up across the street from me, had a child a few years back. I ran into him a couple of christmases ago when I went home to visit my parents and was introduced to his son Rockey (first name) Rhodes ( last name). Very hard to get past that on the spot and not laugh at him. The baby is gorgeous, and the guy was one of the hottest things at school during the day, and his wife is gorgeous as well...so there is hope for this kid
