    We had two new ones last week... Steele and the last name also started with an St so it seemed even more odd to me. And the other was Halen, we named the baby we lost Halyn since I thought I'd never hear it at the playground... well apparently it'll be out there anyway uggh.

    On one of the Judge shows today the lady's name was Candida made me think of yeast.
    And there is a male hispanic version Candido.

    I recently heard about a baby named Angel Nevaeh, but let's cut the parents some slack because she lived just 3 days.


    we've had several of the heaven-spelled-backwards lately...

    we had a patient say her baby's name was savannah because that was "heaven spelled backwards."...sigh.

    Seriously, What's wrong with the name "Nevaeh"? Other than its popular now. It's kinda cute.

    I have no idea where it came from; its most common pronunciation is "neh-vi-ah."

    Oh, Boy! What a great thread! I have seen some real doozies in my 20 years. When I first started in OB we used to just write the sex of the baby and last name of the mother (male smith, etc.) On one ID card we wrote the name Female Jones. The mother thought that we named her daughter for her and put Female (fee mal ee) Jones on the birth certificate! Another time we had twins - Twin A and Twin B - same thing with that mother - she named her twins Twina (twin uh) and Twinb (twin buh). Another mom named her son Justin but she gave him a middle name of Credible - Just incredible! One of the girls I work with named her son Michael Jordan because her husband creates web sites and, when someone starts to become famous, he creates a web site with that person's name (MichaelJordan.com). When Michael Jordan filed a law suit against him, he said that he only created the site because his wife was pregnant and that was going to be the baby's name. So they named him Michael Jordan which is his entire first name. They also have a daughter named Briar Rose (entire first name) because she was conceived in Disney and Briar Rose was Sleeping Beauty's real name. Go figure. We have a lot of Precious, Heavenly, Devine, etc. :chuckle

    Yes! I remember vaguely that case, near Detroit, right? Or was that Saginaw?
