    Here's a good one that just got discharged the other day: "Lochia". Yes, we know what it is, and this woman who is American named her kid after the vaginal discharge after birth.

    I have been reading some of the posts and had to add my daughters name and a few others...

    My daughter is Riley Pearl
    My friends daughter is Jordan Noel
    Another friends daughter is Delaney Grace, and son is Ethan Shay

    I always hated my name growing up because there were no other Molly's but now it is brother too, no Brandon's when we were kids now they are everywhere.

    My mother was named Perpetua, but she was always called Pearl. I don't think she would have been offended when I named a lttle silver grey tabby kitten "Pearl"!

    No offense but sometimes when I hear weird names I wonder how educated these people are that name their kids these names. Of course, I'm not talking about ALL weird names but some of them almost seem obvious. An old boyfriend of mine....his mom was a RN said that she knew of a lady that had a baby girl in the hospital where she worked and named her "Female" (pronouced it "Fa Molly". Someone said that she saw the birthcertificate and it said "female" for the sex and the mother put "Female" for the name.....

    [B]My mother use to work in community healthcare... there were a few vietnamese familes w/interesting names...
    Brothers: Hip, Hi, Ho
    Sisters: Cathy, Kathi *i swear it*
    but my fave: Phouc Van Ngueyen *pronounced like that ugly four letter word beginning w/an F, the last name sounds like "when".

    My mom taught a kid with the name Phouc, and his middle name was pronounded like "you" He sat very near Jesus, NOT pronounced Hey-sues. She also taught (my favorite) Auqanet.

    My family (yes, we are Southern) has handed down some real doozies. I have twin aunts named Betty Jean and Letty Dean; one of their sisters is married to Uncle Tink. My mother had a 2nd cousin or somebody named Mary Jane Mitty el Thritty- not sure of the spelling on that one. I felt sorriest, though, for Uncle Lump.

    My gyn was Dr. Clapp, my mother's was Dr. Swindle, and my preacher was Dr. Lust. My best friend's OB was Dr. Barren. There is a urologist in her hospital named Dr. Chop. My ex worked with a contractor named Dick Small , and his mother(Jill) has a twin brother named Jack. In high school I had a good friend named Eve, who dated Adam. I remember when an MA I worked with was looking for a chart, and referred to it with the pt's last name- it came out, "Has anyone seen Maboob?" I once had a beautiful little girl pt named Jezebel- honestly! How do people do this to their kids?

    and rhiannon.. (ya know, Fleetwood Mac!)
    I LOVE the name Rhiannon--but then, I am a Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks freak...

    Did meet someone in the mid'70s who named his kid "Apple" (after the Beatles' last record label...)

    Sylvester Stallone's first son's name is Sage Moonblood Stallone.
    Actually, Sage was a pretty common boy's name for a while there in the late '60s, early '70s.

    My cousin had a husband and wife team of teachers when she was in high school in the early '60s---I swear, I am not making this up--husband's name was Harry; wife's name was Ima. Their last name? Butts.

    My sister's GI doctor was out of town when she became ill. She had to see his associate Dr. Butt. My mom knew a lady whose name (maiden name) was Mable Sable. When I worked in Baltimore we had an Ob/Gyn group w/ three doctors Popkin, Matesic, and Stern- we abbreviated this on the board as PMS. So a person could be in labour and still have PMS.

    I have friends named David and Denice. Their children are Desley, Dean, Derek, Denae, and Deeanne. I also had a friend whose older brother got his father's first name and younger brother got his father's middle name. So when he and his wife had two sons, they *both* got his first name as a middle name! Not *quite* as bad as George Foreman, I guess! Doesn't he have five Georges?

    Had a patient with the name 'Fuqua" do you pronounce that?

    Family here with two sons. Eldest is Kyote (pronounced coyote) and younger son is Cobra. Also know of a woman named Sh*thead (sorry, but that is how it is spelled) pronounced Shi-Theed.

    Yes, George has 5 sons, all named George. But what a lot of people don't know is he has a daughter (actually 2) and I went to high school with her. She looked JUST like her dad and her name was "Michi", pronounced "Mee-chee". She had a gorgeous singing voice but rarely used it because people loved to tease her for being overweight and having a funny name.

    In answer to the poster who asked how to pronounce "Fuqua"...I dated a guy whose last name was Fuqua and he pronounced it "Few-kwa".

    My best friend in high school had two kids and one was named Robert and the girl, Laurie. Sounds OK doesn't it. The only problem was these are the names of their parents! It is one thing to name a male child after their father, as in "junior", but both kids. I have spent over 25 years referring to them as little Bob or big Bob, little Laurie or big Laurie. Very confusing. Also I went to school with two sisters named Karla and Mary Christmas. My wife went to school with a guy named Dusty Rhodes. Mike
