    I used to work with a girl named Khaki, who had a brother born on the fifth day of the fifth month and 5:55pm, named Quincy. I wish I could remember the sisters name...it was different. We also worked with a girl named Ebony.

    I keep telling my husband if we ever have any children the boys name is going to be Radley. Needless to say he HATES it.

    My husband told me this story. My husband had a roomate in college whose father was an OB/GYN in a rural hospital. He said he had a patient who had gonnorhea and syphillis. The lady delivered twins and supposedly one child had gonnorhea and the other syphillis. So the hospital tagged them so they wouldn't mix up the meds.

    A few weeks later the doctor saw the patient and asked what did you name your babies. The lady said,"Well it is the damnedest thing, the hospital named them for me. This one is gonnorhea (sounded like: Gun nora) and this one is syphillis (sounds like: C phyllis).LOL

    I am a nursing student, but while I was a lab receptionist I had two patients w/ hysterical names: Fannie Akin and Cherry Beaver. NO JOKING! I laughed everytime I pulled their charts which was often as they were frequent flyers!

    Anyway, didnt mean to butt in!

    Had a pt. with a room full of family ask me how to spell a word that she heard during her office visit. They couldn't figure out how to spell "Chlamydia". Pt. said that it was the prettiest word she's ever heard. And she wanted to name her baby that. She knew it was a girl baby. With all the family in there and how people are funny about confidentiality, I didn't have the heart to tell her that it was a STD. There was literally more than 10 people in her room and around her bed. I told her that I'd write it down and tell her later. But then the resident walked in to examine her so that we could start her induction. She asked him. (And no one had left the room either for the exam. She didn't have any modesty and they didn't have any respect to leave. Even after I asked them too.) And he stood there and spelled it out. Not even wondering why in the heck the family member is writing it down. When we left the room, I pulled him aside and told him why they wanted it spelled. He was floored! He went back in and told them (with no confidentiality in mind) that they absolutely couldn't name the baby after a STD. Well, at least I didn't breach any rules there. LOL.

    I just saw a "Sandy Beaver" in the paper, luckily for her it was in the engagement listings, so she won't have that name too much longer, at least I'm assuming
