    Look at that Sharpiemom, i think you have a consensus. You can proudly call the new parents and congratulate them on the birth of little Ay-mon and be confident...

    who would have known

    I recently did my nephews easter list with him, and had to consistently ask what sex the names of the classmates were in order to determine which valentine to assign them. he didn't understand why i thought it was so funny, i guess the days of Michael and Jessica are over! unless its JeySiKA!
    And I take it he doesn't live in an area with a lot of foreign-born people?

    Blue. Ironically the baby came out blue and needed PPV.

    Was talking with my NM this weekend about our Cocaine Lucifer (she was out for the entire week) and she pulled out a list of "Baby Mama Drama" - it had names on it from her tenure at the hospital, and the first one was Abcde - Several of the older nurses were craking up remembering that family - seems that name has gotten around. Another at our hospital was Espn - pronounce Es-pen. But not a single one on there topped baby Cocaine.

    I may already have posted it here in this thread, but I know of a little boy named Ozzy. Not John Michael, which is the Oz-man's real name, but OZZY.

    I had a little pt named Manmeet. I knew that it was a foreign name, but it still got snickers every time she came in.

    I also had a pt named Yurhighness. Reminded me of Jermaine Jackson's "Jermajesty".

    When I worked clinic, I couldn't get over how many people would be offended when we mispronounced their or their child's name. When your name is 15 letters long and has only two vowels in it we try our best but sometimes we are going to miss it. No disrespect meant at all.

    Thing is, calling a child "Your Highness" or "Your Majesty" is NOT generally a term of endearment.
