    We have a boy named by his 4-year-old brother, 'Davian'. (Not Damian, 'Davian'. Hmmmm)

    We also have twin girls of a young teenage mom: 'Angela' & 'Angelina'.
    Guess the twins will have to fight over who gets to use the nickname 'Angie'.

    I wish I could be a fly on the wall when the twin are preschoolers and the mom is calling out to them when they both are acting up. Heck, I say the wrong name enough with my twins as it is, and they are 'Caleb' & 'Cameron'.

    Quote from private peds nurse
    the weirdests names i have ever heard was a set of twins, and the babie's names were spelled orangejello (pronounced ar-mon-jalo) and lemonjello (pronounced la-mon-jalo), the only thing i could imagine was the mother must have been on a jello craze when she named these poor kids!!!!
    can you imagine being called the jello kids????? gosh what on earth was this person thinking????
    actually, looking back on this thread, these are actually very common names, i'm surprised you've never heard of them. :d

    I see some strange names and/or initials when i read the obituaries.

    Had a dear male patient whose initials were COK.

    Saw in the obits a gentleman named Harold Cox.

    Richard Long.

    My husband went to school with a Richard Stuck, nickname Dick.

    Sometimes it's not so much the given name, but the combination of given and surname.

    And my little grandson is Xavier :heartbeat born 12-31-08.

    Dorcas (usual spelling) is an ancient Greek girl's name. Not to be confused with Dorkus, often paired with Doofus in naming loony twins.

    Oh my, my, my...I could list so many!!! Probably, the most recent was Dirtbike Susie and Shithead. Yep! That's right...but you say it like Shi-thead. Also...
    -Kleenex Tissueta:chuckle
    -Damya (Dam ya)
    -Neveah (Heaven spelled backwards...I have no idea how to say it!)
    I'm sure I'm leaving off a host of apostrophes, dashes, and other ridiculous punctuation!

    Saw one today named "Telly". In his 50s, so not Sesame Street's fault.
