What's the weirdest name you've heard a patient name her baby?
- 13Apr 14, '02 by teresab_2000Hi, 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 remembers a patient that named her child Placenta . I couldn't believe it that some child has to live his life named after disgusting afterbirth!!!

Anyway, one baby's name was 'Knowledge'. Well, at least that would be more of a self esteem booster than 'Troubles' I reckon.

Sapphire, Crystal, Jade and a pearl'
I apoligise - I was wrong it was not Pearl I have just been reminded that it ws in fact Amber - However what is one gem amongst another I guess a lot to the mother concerned - It must have been fashionable 20 years ago to have gem names.
