What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 97

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

    Emphasis in added by me. They do have their own web pages in these webnurseries.





    Other than that, trepin, calm down. Eden wasn't jumping down your throat about this, she was just stating that due to the amount of quoted "I know this for a fact"posts on these names, she was wondering about proof.

    Sheesh, people seem to be so prickly this past week.

    I apologize. But it is only a web board. I do know for a fact about these names and I have no reason to lie.I was actually amazed that people in other parts of the US heard that name too, especially the woman whos husband works for the SS administration.! As for Web Nursery, it didnt exist at my hospital until only a few years ago and these children are older.(about 12 years old maybe). the idea of this board was input on names we have come across and I admit I was a bit surprised to be put in the position of coming up with proof , especially when there are names here that seem a little more far fetched than Lemonjello and Oranjello. Having worked in Labor and Delivery for more than 10 years I have heard a lot and seeing any these names here actually does not surprise me or raise any doubt about the validity of these names!! I am sorry if I came off a bit punchy. Sorry Eden....

    When I did a clinical rotation in nursing school in San Francisco at a public health clinic in the early eighties we had a lovely client who was pregnant. After the birth she came in to show us her twins who she had named after her favorite tv show which was helping her learn English. The two boys were named Starsky and Hutch! We had another client who named her new daughter Clitoria because it sounded so pretty. TRUE!!

    I went to school with a girl named Marijuana. I don't know if her name was Marijuana or Mary Juana, but I'm sure that was her name. I asked my mom recently because I was sure my memory was fooling me, but my mom said she remembered that girl. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't hear it myself.

    My friend's aunt named her son Stone Phillips because she loves that name. And then she named her DD Marilyn because she loves Marilyn Monroe. I think that is a cute name though.

    That was interesting to look at!

    Neither of my sons has a name that shows up on the top 20 list for his birth year, yet neither one has an odd or unusual name.

    It's also interesting to see how some names wear well- Emma is on the list for 1900 as well as for 2005, whereas other names, like Bertha, tend to sound odd to us now.

    Thanks for the link!

    I was really hoping this site could be used as semi "proof" of a name, I tried all the ones I doubted existed; like "vagina, lemonjello, orangejello, meconium", they were not listed.

    But then I tried some unusual names that I KNOW exist; like Neveah, it doesn't show up either. It's actually listed as number 70 on the popularity list for 2005 on the social security website. Also tried Gunner; kind of unusual, but I've seen several people (not just newborns) with this name, and it wasn't on this database.

    Oh well, I really wanted it to be comprehensive.

    Damn. Same experience. Apparantly I do not exist in the U.S., due to my weird last name. Here in CA, Jadon is a popular name for boys, but according to that site, there are zero Jadons.

    Montserrat, for a girl.

    Nice, I suppose, but she was in the NICU and someone made her a cute name sign. At first glance it looked like "Monster rat"
