"1. Child's Name
First Name: Enter the infant's first name. If the parents have not selected a given name for the
infant, enter "Infant." Do not enter the last name of the mother as the child's first name. Do not leave
this item blank.
Middle Name: Enter the infant's middle name, and any names other than First and Last. If there is no
middle name, leave this item blank; do not enter NMI, NMN, etc.
Last Name: Enter the infant's last name. The child's last name does not have to be the same as either
parent. [emphasis mine] Also enter any suffixes following the last name.
' No numerical names, obscenities, or non-alphabetic characters are permitted. [emphasis mine]Parents may name the infant any name they desire as long as it will fit in the space provided on the
certificate. The entry may be "double-decked" if necessary. The parent(s) do not have to give
the child their surname; for instance John Jones and Mary Brown, husband and wife, may
name their child Tommy Green, Jr. A mother may give her child a supposed father's name
without his name appearing on the birth certificate as the father. A last name may be
hyphenated, as in Jones-Brown."

Jul 24, '10Occupation: mom, student From: US ; Joined: Dec '09; Posts: 73; Likes: 33I worked with a girl who was named Godis and her middle name was Good. So her name was God is Good. Her cousin--who was born 3 days later, was named Iamme. I am me. Godis was also very stunning and gorgeous, so when guys would try and flirt with her it always came back to "yeah God IS good!". Or "Your mama shoulda just named you Goddess!"
I guess they were good reminders to have through out life?

When I was doing my CMA clinical I had a patient with an African name. I could NOT pronounce his name b/c there were NO vowels. It was all consonants. It started with a "Y" and ended with a "Z." The boys name had 15 letters.
