    Birth announcement in the paper the other day said First: Eaton Last Name: Cox......I almost died of laughter and then read it 100 more time to be sure...are you serious...what planet do you live on that you would think that name is ok?
    As for the last name Cox, I had a teacher in high school who went by her maiden name and married name (hyphenated); she was Mrs. DeLong-Cox (not "da-long" but "dee-long).

    Yeah, we loved to make fun of that one!

    Twilla Dawn-pregnant 18 year old mother decided that Twilight wasn't a proper name for her daughter so she shortened it to Twilla and used Dawn as the middle name from Breaking Dawn.Seriously?Twilla is such a weird name
    Not the first time I've heard it. There was a contemporary Christian artist I remember from the 80's named Twila Paris. Not sure if it was a given or stage name, but I loved her signing.

    Not at all medical-related, but right now in Alabama, we have a candidate running for State Treasurer whose name is Young Boozer. Apparently Young is a traditional name in the Boozer family, because I understand he is neither the first nor the last to carry it.

    Some of these names are very unusual for sure, but until you see a person name the baby daughter Homer or Elmer or Orville, and the baby son Lucille or Henrietta, or Hilda, etc Then I think they are okay, even though they are very funny.

    Just remembered another good one. I worked with a "Beaunique" once. She said her mother combined Beautiful with Unique. uh...yeah...
    Like some people combine narcotics with tranquilizers/alcohol... it may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but later on down the road, it doesn't work well together.

    Yes, so true my coworker made fun of me because I read a patient name Alize' as a regular name not as the actual drink. Actually, yesterday I had a patient named Patron.

    I grew up with a girl named "anastarr" prounounced, On-a-star.
    Apparently her mother wen to a traveling carnival while pregnant, and saw the carni gypsy. The gypsy told her not to name her baby "Milliani" as she was planning. The mom said, well what's your name?

    Anastarr was the name of the traveling gypsy carni.
