    These are too funny! Goes to show how all over the place people can be! I saw one, "Oceana Blue", seems a little much. This other one is a kicker, La-shia. Now how would you pronounce that? The mom got mad when it was prounounced "Lashia" and angrily corrected "Ladasha" You are supposed to actually say "dash" in there... really!?, really!!
    Mom did even get that right. If we are going to verbalize the dash it would be Ladashshia

    I heard the name Pepsi a few years ago this is not as bad as the name "Placenta" listed above but kind of a silly name still.

    I've had several weird (awful) names over the years..... "A Miracle" (the 1st name was actually the letter A), Candidas, Areola, Gonorrhea (pronounced Ga-NOR-ea, the mom saw it on her chart & thought it looked pretty!) But one of the better ones I've heard was from a elementary teacher who was my patient. She'd had a student the previous year who's name was.... "La-a" Pronounced La-Dash-a. OK, I'll give her points for creativity, but REALLY!

    Worked with a physician Dr. Sky Blue

    When I first heard this over the hospital intercom I thought it was a joke.

    One of the best physicians I have worked with in my career.

    Well I have never laughed so hard. What a great thread and it's how many years old?

    I have to add one of my brother's best friends when I was a kid was named Rusty Door. To this day they call him Squeaky. lmao
