    Last year my daughter had a classmate named Princess.

    I took care of a patient named Princess a few years ago......but she was a horse.

    I knew someone named Princess, she was an adult. So I am guessing that her parents were sort of revolutionaries heehee She is probably about 30 now, give or take 3-4 years.

    Actually, there is a local woman whose first name is Princella. She carries herself very royally and elegantly...a great role model for young girls and women. Maybe she would have been that way anyway?:redpinkhe

    working everywhere from nicu to ccu, i've seen several names that were not in the "norm". i went to school with a boy named rusty. his last name was head. my own son's middle name is quest. but of the most unusual, here are the ones that come to mind:

    pancake jamesa, henauder titzhoff (seriously...that was his name...), f'molly (she was female. the 15 year old mom just kept saying her baby name was f'molly), patricia (patti) coats, then there was the couple that had john wayne and kirk douglas, and the quadruplets all named after texas towns and counties: travis, austin, katy, carroll.

    OMG!You would not believe some of the names I have heard in 24 years of nursing!:eek!: For example:Stone Cold Steve Austin(this was just the first name),Girl Baby(poor thing was baby #12 and parents had ran out of ones they liked),twins named Lemonjello and Orangejello(look closely at this one,Placenta,Lochia,Rubra...I could go on!These are all actual names.I think that it should be a crime to do that to a child.
    Okay went to school with Benjamin Dover every one called him ben. Thats right " Hi I am Ben dover" doesn't work well in locker rooms.
