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 know a woman who named her kids after countries

    First born was named India, second born (my niece) is name Britian, third born is named Holland. Now pregnant with first boy and thinking about naming him Belize. I kid you NOT!
    Perhaps that's where they were conceived. Does she travel a lot? Nelly Furtado named her child Nevis after the island. Makes me think of belly buttons.

    At the college I attend, this girl's name first name is 'Baby Girl" . True it sounded so odd to hear professors call her by her name.

    Man, some of these names are borderline abuse. I thanked my mom for not naming me Orangejello.

    Actually it's an extremely popular name. It was #5 for girls in 2006 and #6 in 2005.

    There will always be another girl in her class with the same name, if not two or three others.

    A patient had twins. She named them The and Their. Their last name was Other. The Other and Their Other. Only in Memphis!
    I can't believe someone would be so cruel as to name their kid "The" :angryfire

    That's ridiculous! These parents need to realize that these babies are human beings who will grow up and need normal names. It's like they're picking cutsie things like you would for a doll or a dog...

    Yes, I definitely agree. My husband works with a guy whose daughter is named Isabelle - she must be 3-4 about now. Every time I hear her name I think that it's so pretty. And she's a pretty little girl, too.

    It sounds like a beautiful, classy name to me. Ah well, we all have different tastes.

    My husband's (deceased) grandmother always told the family that when naming a baby, you should first imagine what it would look like on a name plate sitting on the desk of a banker or some-such occupation and take it from there - I think if I ever went to get a loan from someone who had a name plate with "The Other" on it, I might think twice!!!!!!

    BTW, even though she was long gone before we had our kids, we like to think that Grandma was nodding in approval when we named our kids - tee hee!

    Our pharmacy actually keeps a notebook with the best names written in it. Recently, we had a new entry- Dalailama. No joke, spelled just like the real guy. (Most of us couldn't help referring to him with a respectful "the" before his name.) When the pharmacy girls went to enter his name in the book, they found he was the next one under Socrates. Good company!


    When I was doing clinics in villages in the bush in Zambia, I actually kept a list of the good names. Some of my favourites? Organ, Stew, Emergency, Obvious, Marble (one of the babies I delivered!), and the twins: Steve and Stevious. I miss Africa...
