What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 131

I just for the life of me, can't figure a new mom & dad w/the last name of Derryberry sitting in the hospital room with their adoreable new bundle of joy and saying "Jerry Derryberry" that's it, without thinking of the future ramifications... ha!

Then, she named her second son, my second sons (from my marriage to him) middle name. That was confusing wasn't it?
So my boys names are Nicholas Brandon, and their son is Brandon Lynn
and my child is Jacob Alan, and their second son is Alan Lee. Weird girl. Who wants to copy cat the ex-wife? Oh, and my middle name is Lynn, also. And I did make sure she knew all this before she went ahead with it.

The birth registry would not let her do it.I've heard a mother name her baby Seven because that is how many pregnancies she had before carrying a baby full term.

I once heard about a artist whose legal name was Sharon, but she called herself Sha4ron. If anything, it was a harmless gimmick.

Feb 19, '08Occupation: OB Nurse Specialty: Labor & Delivery ; Joined: Nov '05; Posts: 7Okay...around here the name Nevaeh (Heaven spelled backwards is pretty popular lately). Had a pt a couple months ago who was pregnant with her second child and had he little girl with her. We asked what her little girls name was...Sh'Turquoise. Umm...what? So we asked what her unborn babies name was and she replied "My Daddy said I hafta name this baby somethin' he could spell!") The intelligence. Of course there was always the very black couple who named their baby Aryan Nation...they thought it was so beautiful. I tried to explain what that meant...but they weren't hearing it. We have also had:
Hyaline (as in membrane)
Ophelia (the moms last name was Wiggly-Weiner, I"m not joking)
and Pearl (the mom wanted to be the Mother of Pearl!)
The list is endless!

So she is 11 y/o now, she named her Harley Davidson, can't remember what their last name is.
My sis works in the local dollar store here in town, and some of the names she comes home with are crazy! One little girl was named chorea, and she swears the sisters name was something like bacteria, lol. Can't wait for them to come back in to see what it really is.
I also had a couple with the last name of Hicks name their little boy Braxton. Guess only nurses can appreciate the irony of that one, lol.

Don't know if I'd name a boy Atticus, but it is an interesting name.My daughter's name is Cadence! LOL! And yes I know it is a "different" name but I do think it is beautiful and strong. We actually got it from the movie "American Wedding." She was the bride's sister.
Same for Cadence, but it is pretty.
