    I've never worked L&D but I do remember a "Porcelain Bidet" and a "Female" pronounce famali. Oh, and Twins called "Tequila" and "Taqueria" pronounced taquila and takeria. Got to love those teenage moms!

    We have an 'Armani', which is bad enough for a boy, but it's a girl.

    Wow! I just saw a girl named "Le-a". Her name is not pronounced Lea, Leah or Lia. It is pronounced "Ledasha." Mom says the "-" is not silent???

    I have a good friend whose name is Jocola...Her fathers name is Joe and right after she was born her mother only wanted a Coke so she mushed it together and got Jocola...I also go to church with a couple who have quite a few children and chose to name them with biblical names...AND BELIEVE ME THEY SEARCHED...so they have Abraham, Benjamin, Calvery, Delilah, Elisabeth, Felix, and they they have GAMAYA!!! So I ask Aleshia after she brings her home why they didnt use a "G" bible name and she says to me, "I did!!! You know like Sodom and Gamaya!!!" It took everything I had not to just burst out laughing!! And now they just resently welcomed fraternal twins Hazel and Isaac! I wonder if they are trying to go to the alphabet??!!

    The wierdest names I came across were what my old neighbour named his sons. He named them, Ramses, Triton, and Maximus. Not sure what made them come up with these names.
    Are these not names of condoms? LOL

    Before changing careers to nursing, I did 30 years of policework and I came across a number of...unique... names. When my daughter was born, there was a newborn in the hospital who was named Saudi Kuwait (yes, this was at the time of the first Gulf War). On the street I ran across a male teen who's first name was Mister, and at one time I dealt with a female named Female (pronounced Fem-ah-lee).

    My friend said that after Lord of the Rings came out she got a lot of kids named Elrond and Frodo and such... can you imagine doing that to a kid? Frodo is cute for a baby, not so cute looking on a resume when the kid is 20...

    There is a girl named "Princess" in my class, I do not think that I could ever use that name seriously.
