    Randomly discussing baby names with the boy...he suggests "Rain." His last name is pronounced "Cool." Yeah, I'm naming our kid Cool, Rain. Not happenin' bud.

    Had one come in through ER named Smokey. They were so impressed that I spelled it right...until the other nurse let it slip that my black Lab had the same name.

    When I found out what my birth mother was going to name me, I was never so glad to be adopted Onyx Acadia. My name is Sarah now. But I legally changed it to that from Courtney.

    My grandma used to do the census when it was door to door. She told me about a lady who named her daughter Female. Pronounced "Phimalay." When asked where she got that name she replied, "The doctor gave it to her when she was born."
