    Okay here is one for the books. I had a father come and ask me how I would spell a name...Well I spelled it as he pronounced it! Vernquez was the name. He said Vern was for his cellmate in prison and quez came from his last name. This is definitely one that I will never forget!!!

    LOL... Nothing like giving the kid something to live up to!!

    What a great thread!! I love hearing all of these names, it is amazing what people come up with. In the NICU we have a lot of Neveah's (Heaven backwards) and Miracle's. While my mom was working as a field nurse for the PHD, she had a baby who's name was Female (rhymes with tamale). The family was from Mexico and saw it on some papers, thought the hospital named the baby and just went with it I guess.
    What a coincidence! That's my baby's name! I'd been considering it and even had a few people from here vote on it! The choices were "Female", "Orangello" and "Lemonjello." When she was born, she was already named "Female" because that's what was on her hospital wristband. I thought it must be fate and therefore she's known as "Female." It even rhymes with Tamale! :trout:

    Just so you know, that's an old urban legend. You can read about it at http://www.snopes.com/racial/language/names.asp

    Let me go bang my head now after reading about baby "Female" for the umpteenth time...

    There's a kid who graduated high school here named Richard Sniff (first & last names), but he went by the nickname "Dick" - you can put 2 & 2 together there.
    When I was growing up there was a local retailer by the name of Richard Liss. He also went by the name of Dick.

    We also had a girl with a rare fatal disease. She was named after her other 5 siblings that had already died from it... Kendara Miracle Precious Angel Breea. She ended up having a less severe form of the disease and is living a relatively normal life.

    Our NICU is divided into pods of 8 beds each and one day we had a Braeden, Graydon, Jayden & Kaden (twin girls), and an Aiden. When I gave report to the nurse coming on, she thought I was joking.

    I had a high school gym teacher whose mother named him, Seymore Harry butts...no kidding.

    And, I grew up with a kid who had the name, Stony Brick Wall.

    I have cousins with the last name of Busch...they all received flower names like Rose Busch.

    And other friends whose last name was country, named their 8 kids after cities. Boston etc.

    I once worked with a guy (in the Air Force) who's real name was Travis P. Travis. Who in their right mind would name their child travis travis.

    I too knew a guy with the same name twice. His birth name was "Colby Colby" wth??

    I also grew up with a girl that had the last name "Joker" so eventually they decided to change it. I mean they would call to get pizza and everyone thought it was a prank "yes this is Mr Joker and I'd like to order pizza" Anyway, he took his first name and made it his last name so his legal name was Lindsey Lindsey...
