What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 114
Hi, 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... Read More

We came across the next chart, and proceeded to call out the last name of the patient. (It was in a naval hospital, and the patient was a few ranks lower than me, therefore I could ask her the following question without worry of trouble). This black girl came back for vitals and I asked her "Is this name right on the chart. Is your first name pronounced -- Shithead??" and she replied passionatly "NO!!! MY NAME IS CHITHEAD!" (pronounced chi'-thead'). :angryfire

I went to school with a kid who name was Richard Harold Butts (for real, not lying). His mom ran the town pool. We were so mean. We called him "Dick Hairy Butt", and then expected for him to get us into the pool for free. He never acted like it bothered him, and his mom pretended not to notice. I feel so bad now. He moved away when we were in high school. If I could find him to apologize, I would.
At Wal-Mart a few weeks ago, the cashier's name was ABC. I asked her how to pronounce her name, and she rolled her eyes (well, I guess she probably does get tired of answering that question!) and said "uh-be-see".

My Dad was going to be Michael Alan D.... (MAD) but thankfully my grandmother changed her mind on that so he was Michael Douglas D.... (MDD), My grandfather is Alan Douglas D.... (ADD) and my great-grandfather is Edward Douglas D... (EDD) and everyone calls him Eddie.

My mom hated it, but I loved the name. I threatened to name my son such that his initials would be SAD just to drive her nuts, but he ended up a nice meaningless ESD.

May 22, '07Joined: May '07; Posts: 12omg!! some of these names are too funny...what were these parents thinking?!?
it seems to be real common nowadays to name your child something really outrageous..like look at those celebrities who name their kids pilot inspektor and audio science..that's just crazy in my opinion and i feel so bad for those children...having to grow up with names like that...
i've come across some "unique" names myself in my short career as a doula...rainbow brite (yes, after the cartoon), a little boy named "dove" and one of my clients named her son sunny day...luckily for him it was a "sunny day" when he was born...if it would have been raining, she was going to call him "rainy day"...not sure what she would have named him if he was born at night..."dark night"..."starry night"?!? i wouldn't have been surprised....
