Sep 5, '03My mom wanted to name me "Liberty" and wanted to call me "Libby" for short. She said that she came up with that name because I was born in 1975 a year before the US Dec. of Independence Bi-Centennial in 1976. Don't know much about it but she said it was a big deal back in the '70's. Everything was painted red, white and blue and lots of patriotism, parades, etc. But, my dad really didn't dig the idea so no go. I could see it becoming a popular name after Sept. 11 alhtough don't know anyone that has named their baby.
Did any of you read the story months ago about the guy in the Army that legally changed his name to "Optimus Prime" who was the leader of the "Transformers" which were big with my generation back in the '80's.
I have cousins that live in Baltimore on Berry St. -three brothers, Barry, Brad and Brian.
My friend has a niece named "Jada Mae", prounounced Jade-a,
Sep 5, '03As a nurse in Wisconsin, I ran across a physician named Dr. Doctor. He had a sister who was a nurse (nurse Doctor). When I was in the military I had a patient named Elvis Presley Levey and his sister, Dolly Parton Levey. Their parents were big into country music, but didn't get out much. Also, a friend of my daughter has the unusual last name of Asswipe.
Sep 5, '03The cutest little baby boy names Pepper John also (thankfully) changed by adoptive parents!

Reminds me of a guy my stepmom went to school with. His last name was Douche. He wound up getting a legal name change after he's gotten sick of the Summer's Eve and Massengil jokes.
Sep 6, '03Ready for this one?
I know a kid named "United States of America" (family is from Mexico and they don't even speak English)
Twin girls named "Lexus" and "Mercedes"
Just recentely heard of someone who is pregnant and is planning on naming the baby "Grape"
Sep 6, '03I'm a chronic reader of the birth page in the Sunday news..just to laugh at all the names parents give kids....
Hayden and Holden are some of the most popular boys names that you see...not too different..just popular..I feel sorry for the teachers, they'll have like 6 Haydens and 5 holdens in their classes..lol
But a few that made me want to smack the mom's upside the head:
Justin Timberlake (Timberlake being the middle name)
Magnus Michael (Gave birth to an 80 yaer old man?? WOW)
and the piece de' la' resistance....
Twins..one boy..one girl....
Dolche and Gabanna (sp?)
The one thing I hate (call me conservative) is all the different spellings. I feel sorry for the kids having to add all these y's s's and ie's where there normally wouldn't be any...My sister just had a baby girl named Lauren Elizabeth...the nurse had to ask how to spell the name...my sister just looked at her and said "um...the normal way?"
The only differences I really like are the old fashioned ones...like Megan is the updated way of splling it...Meghan is the Irish way...that kind of thing. But lordy..
A bit much don't you think?
Thats just my opinion..I guess I'm too old fashioned for today! =0)
Sep 6, '03I love that Angelina Jolie named her son Maddox. I wonder where she got that from. Does anyone know the origin? Thanks!
Sep 6, '03I took care of a patient this summer whose first name was Westy and middle name was Virginia. Westy Virginia, I loved it!

Big Grateful Dead Fan huh? I think if I was going to name a kid after a song, I might go for Melissa from the Allman Brothers.

Sep 7, '03I am a "Brandie" and hated it growing up...I now love it although it's a name I have to say twice to patients. When they have a quizzical look the first time I say it, I repeat "Like the drink, Brandie!" Everybody gets it then!
