What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 74

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 went to school with someone who had that name. She was mentally challenged which added a whole 'nother dimension to it.

    We recently had a toddler in the hospital named Ozzy. Not John Michael, which is Mr. Osbourne's real name, but OZZY.

    One hospital in my region prints babies' names in the paper, and one was named Aryan. It was probably pronounced A-ry-an but wouldn't you think SOMEONE would have known what that word meant?

    I have also heard about a woman whose name was Female, pronounced Fe-ma-lee. Her parents saw that word on the ankle bracelet and gave her that as her name because they thought the hospital named the baby. There have also been stories (maybe urban legend, maybe not) about girls named Vagina and boys named Sh1thead, pronounced Shi-theed.

    I have actually come across the name Vagina myself, she was a really sweet Phillipino lady.
    Sometimes you don't know what a name might mean in another language. In 1996, Iranian newscasters had some issues with the Republican presidential candidate because "Dole" is the Farsi word for "penis."

    Hippo!!
    Baby's whole name was "Hippolito". Mom said it was a hispanic name--she pronounced the H. Which is fine...but to shorten it to HIPPO?

    Besides probably dozens of Marys, there's Marimae, Maude, Margery, Marjorie, Maybelle, Marcy, Marlys, Marley, Mildred, Myldred, Margene, Melinda, Marcia, Mavis, Marilyn, Marlene, Marlena, and Margaret--all people I met in school at one time or another. Some were students and some were teachers. Interesting that I could only think of one that started "Mi" like your other daughters. These names would all be from the first half of the 20th century.
    We have decided on Melody. (3 1/2 year old loved it). Thank you everyone who gave suggestions. :wink2:

    Can't say it was a 'weird' name, per se....but one name that I have had at least 2 pts. name their kid was 'precious.' Now, some people may think that's endearing or whatever, but to me it sounds like a name you'd give your poodle or a stripper.

    "Precious" just reminds me of a Ring..............................and a little ugly guy who wants it back.

    My hockey-playing husband wanted to name our son Zachary Zamboni. Needless to say I said no.
    My husband wanted to name our son John Arthur but I was insistent on naming him after my father Jimmy, so we named our son James Arthur (Arthur is a family name on hubby's side). So three years later my husband wanted to name our second child John Arthur and I told him "ABSOLUTELY NOT.....I AM NOT NAMING MY DAUGHTER THAT!"........I had to go in for emergency surgery and he filled out the birth certificate.......luckily, he did not name her John Arthur......her name is Johnnie Brook!!!!!!!!:smackingf

    We had a patient with the first name Female. Thinking she had come in AKA, I asked what her name was and she pronounced it "femahlay".

    We had another woman named Clamidia.

    One of my co-workers swears (no pun intended as you will see in a minute) she knows a young boy with a name that is pronounced " shath-eed" spelled " Sh**head".

    I babysat a girl named Heather Ann G..... Poor thing had to be asked not to put her full initials on her homework.
    I have a friend whose name was Titsworthy (and she is rather veluptuous) and when she got married her name changed to Kunzler and when she got divorced it went back to Titsworthy! (last name):imbar
