What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 139

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

    When I was a student nurse, a female couple came in with their son (one was the adopted parent), his name was Mordesky (pronounced Mor-des-sky). Hmmz I initally thought it was his last name. :shrug:

    Can't say it was a 'weird' name, per se....but one name that I have had at least 2 pts. name their kid was 'precious.' Now, some people may think that's endearing or whatever, but to me it sounds like a name you'd give your poodle or a stripper.

    That's actually my cousin's name. I've never heard of anyone else by that name though. Maybe it's an ethnic thing? Hm.

    Just had a patient, a baby, (can't remember if boy or girl but I want to say boy) named Beautiful Love. Love was the last name. I usually hate unusual names but this one made me smile

But I am seriously getting some cool pet names for the near future :-) Whisper sounds like a cute little kitty and Chaos is a great boxer puppy. I am awaiting to take my nclex.....will get back with you on the cool names i encounter.

    Saw some little boys this week named Prezel and Trezel which were both new ones on me. Reminded me of a set of twins I used to go to school with named Dathan and Jathan. These matchy names would drive me nuts if I was their mom. I already mix up my kids names sometimes and I only have one boy and one girl!

    I also spent a day in a NICU unit this week. One nurse said she sees so many names she can't pronounce that she usually calls her patients "baby girl" or "baby boy" and leaves it at that.

    Genocide, Malachi, and Damien. Taken from the mother for neglect and abuse, a judge ordered their names changed.

    Nursing school saw a baby names Ecstasy. May not have been so bad if it was the street name for a drug.

    Also have a friend who named her baby Nirvana.

    Don't know if anyone has entered this yet but a patient named her daughter Female (Pronounced Fee-Mah-Lee) because she saw it on the baby band! You know how we write "Female" following mom's last name. Ie: if the mom's last name is Wilson, we write Wilson, Female. Well, mom was not american and kept it as baby's name.

    I've also seen ABCDE as a first name for a girl. Pronounced Ab-see-dee....

    I'm sure I'll see more as time goes by....

    actually - the "females" of the world - along with the "lemonjellos" and "orangejellos" seem to have have reached mythical status - i can't count how many times i've seen those either posted here or told annecdotally by ob docs i've worked with over the years. the most unusual ones i've actually witnessed were a pair of twin boys, whose c-section birth i scrubbed myself. they got tagged with "levi" and "garrett" - which for those who don't indulge - is the name of a popular brand of chewing tobacco! they are probably about 12 years old now - and sometimes i wonder how they're doing!
