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

    There was a girl named Liberty Belle something or other at my high school. The other day I saw a caption in the paper that said the girl in the photo was named Unique Tuberville.

    I work at a law firm and have some strange client names. Donald Duck, Jr.!! David David. And my favorite, Micheal Hunt. If you decide to call him Mike......unbelievable.
    There was a Mike Hunt at my middle school...and yes, he actually went by Mike Hunt. LOL There's a David Davidson and a David Davidson Jr in town and also a William Williams. What were those parents thinking???

    We keep a list of funky names that we have run across in the peds office where I work--here's a few I've seen (I'll check the list when I go in tomorrow and post a few more):
    Male twins Antoine and Antwan
    Sisters Eunique and Diamonique
    Coyote Joe
    Mountain
    Silken (dad said they named her for how she looked when she was born.....hmmm, in that case, my son should have been named Cheesy Blue Blob.....!

    Too funny.

    Last night at work (postpartum), I asked a mom if she had named her baby yet. She said yes and told me the name. I asked her how to spell it and she said, "He's a junior," whereupon she called over to the child's father who was lying on the fold-out futon and said, "How do you spell your name again?" The future may not bode well for this wee one.

    Slighty off topic, I know!!!
    Mrs Hubble nicknamed The Bubble because she was quite overweight. Not to her hearing of course!
    At work we would say "Miss Hitchcock is being a Witchcock or a B**chcock", depending on what mood she was in that day.
    Sarah-Louise Angela G______ really did live up to her name. Don't get it? Look at initials!!!
    And finally, I have worked with a nurse named Cleaner!! Now how do people come up with a name like that. BTW, She is from Africa so may be it means something else where she's from so apologies if I offend anyone.

    As a pediatric nurse, a couple of years ago I took care of a Cherrybomb America.

    Also, took care of pt named Chetara. Yep, Mom admitted she named her daughter after the cartoon character from the Thundercats- and now that the daughter is a teenager, mom is still proud of that decision.

    My next girl child will be called Sunshine Daydream. Call me weird, but I choose to give my child a name I like and find unique.

    And remember, someone made all these names up at one point, its not like there are a set number that are OK, and the rest are *made up*
