    Believe it or not, I have a relative named that! The really funny thing is that when I was little, I misheard the name and called him "Cheese!"
    Too cute! Reminds me that my little brother used to call his uncle Scott... "uncle Sock!"

    I've heard a "Ripper"
    Tim "Ripper" Owens has been the lead singer for Judas Priest since Rob Halford left. I'm not a JP fan or anything but I currently have "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" on loan from Netflix.

    I heard recently about a little boy named Ozzy. Not John Michael, which is Mr. Osbourne's given name, but OZZY.

    Well, I think they called her "Vageena". However, they spelled it "Vagina"

    i have scrubbed c-sections off and on for ages in different main ors , and worked in labor and delivery ors as well. i have heard stuff that would curl your hair. the most memorable were these two - both sets of twins, one boys and the other girls.

    the boys were born, everyone was fine, and the babies went to nursery upstairs with dad following close behind. after the case, i found paperwork in the or that needed to go upstairs, so i took it, stopping by the nursery window on the way back to admire the new duet. their older sister, who was about 4 at the time, tugged on my scrub shirt and announced to me that those were her "wittle bwothers" and did i know what their names were? i said i didn't, and she looked up at me, smiled and said........"weevi and gawett" (levi and garret!) in case you didn't know, that's the name of a brand of chewing tobacco! i looked at dad, who looked like he'd indulge from time to time, and he just sorta shrugged and grinned. :icon_roll

    the other twins - both pretty little girls - were born to a young single mother who decided that they should have pretty names that people could spell, pronounce and appreciate, and she proved to be wiser than her years. her daughters are melody and harmony.

    Okay, the lady who was in the room with me when I had my older daughter named her son Country Joe.

    My hubby does social security disability and he SWEARS that he PERSONALLY has seen people named Lemonjello and Orangejello (pronounced le-mohngello and or-ahngello). I don't know.

    My daughter has a friend named Orion. All I can say is that his parents were way cooler than we were!

    Oh! And I took care of a lady in her 80's whose name was Lola Dimples. Can you imagine? I told her she must have been the cutest baby in the world to have been named that!!!


    Lemonjello and Orangejello are definately not just urban legend!
