    Okay I do not work in maternity but I know a few nurses that do. I asked some of them if they had heard of any strange names and they began stating quite a few. One in particular that stood out was...Are you ready for this...

    "Sprokette"

    Why on earth someone would name their little GIRL Sprokette is way beyond me. They must own an auto shop and really love cars to name their baby this one!

    Another one I found amusing was "Dusty Sprinkle"! What on earth were they thinking about...??????

    OMG! These kids better know how to take name calling! Poor little kids.

    What ever happened to names like Susie or Becky or Bobbie or Davie??????

I couldn't believe it that some child has to live his life named after disgusting afterbirth!!!

    Pajama -- but pronounced pa-ji-ma. And another -- dajanae (all they had to add was 'petite' and you have breakfast!!)

    Oh yeah -- and my husband has a relative (distant -thank God) who named her daughter Nicole -- but spelled it Nickhole. Imbecile.

    We transported an NICU team from their hospital to another to pick up a micropreemie. While passing by the nursery I saw the name "Winnie the Pooh" at the head of a crib. I chuckled, thinking it was a joke. The nurse looked at me dead seriously and said "No, that's for real. Mom's only 14."
    Winnie should meet the kid I know of who was given the middle name of "Tigger."

    I'm not sure why parents can't give their kids normal names and then nickname them anything they wish. I have a friend whose grandchildren all have names like "Toots." However, none of those names are on their birth certificates; they have names like Lorena and James. Nicknames can be discarded and/or lived down.

    I have a contribution:

    Ah Viance

    Pronounced like the old Avon perfume Aviance. (showing my age here ... teen mom had no first hand knowledge of the perfume!)
