What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 95

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

    A lot of the names posted are urban legends and nothing more.

    I've had classmates named January, Skye, Summer, Autumn and Leaf. (Nothing like being named by hippy parents in the 70s.)

    One of the CRNA's I work with in the OR told me that a woman decided to name her baby daughter "meconium". I personally would have slapped my mother for naming me after my first BM!

    There is a thread on General Nursing Discussion about a case of child neglect that everyone should read for other reasons...but I mention it here because the babies name is Ice.
    Hi, I was looking for the thread can you post it or give me the exact name? Thank you.

    I looked at the link. The inclusion of the name Gonorrhea reminds me of one of my favorite M*A*S*H* episodes, the one where Klinger mispronounces the name of Charles' sister Honoria and calls her Ha-NO-ree-ah.

    I had a teacher named Harry Weiner. My friend had a co-worker named Harry Ball.

    I almost forgot: the person who worked with Harry Ball worked at a hospital as an alcohol rehab coordinator. She met an OB-GYN from another country while arranging treatment for a patient. The Dr. was a delightful man, but English wasn't his first language. Dr. Kutchie was his name. (I might have spelled that incorrectly--I don't know where he was born.) However, the pronounciation was more like "Coochie". He was a popular Dr. and somebody finally told the poor soul why people were snickering. He eventually became known as "Dr. Kay." He was even paged that way.

    He took it good naturedly, though.

    oh no, don't try to suggest that there are any racist or classist or age-ist undertones to any of these. You'll be called a kill joy and get run over by the defensive-train.:uhoh21:

    A relative of mine had a neighbor named Dick Horney. I don't know that anybody besides me ever thought it was funny but I could barely keep a straight face when I heard it!

    I also know a Dr. Heine (hiney). Not a proctologist, however. And there was a pediatrician whose name was Dr. Capuy, pronounced kapooey. Another one that didn't seem to strike anybody else funny!

    There was a local family with the last name of Meester. A doctor I worked with introduced me to the wife: "This is Mrs. Meester. Her husband, of course, is Mister Meester!!"

    Kind of OT, but my father has this stupid joke....

    A man wants to get into showbiz, so he hires an agent. The 1st thing the agent says is "Well, with a name like Penis van Lesbian, you'll never get work. We'll have to come up with a stage name......I got it! We'll call you Dick van Dyke!"

    Stupid, yeah....but that's my dad's sense of humor.

    That's just the name of the Snopes page referencing poor name choices. Considering that some of these "names" have been rumored since the early 1900s, a time when racism was "normal", it's not a surprising title for the page.

    I've been in L&D for a few months now, and I've been reading this thread waiting to have a name to contribute. Finally had one the other night-- a baby girl named Blaze O'Glory (O'Glory is the middle name, not the last). Interesting.

    I had a patient today named Oregel. (Pronounced Ora-gel) Wonder if her mother had a toothache when she was born? :smackingf

    Harley-Davidson. Davidson is not the middle name. Mother wanted baby called Harley Davidson at all times. Don't remember the middle name, but could it be motorcycle?
