What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 26

Hi, I was wondering about some of those weird names that you've probably encountered in L&D and PP. I remember when I had my maternity rotation a couple of weeks ago, one of the nurses said she... Read More

    Insert standard Dave Barry Disclaimer(TM) = I'm not making this up

    This name was in the phonebook but I don't know about now: Harry Dawg. Currently there is a Goofy Dawg in the phonebook. Some old friends of our family named their son Ezekiel Angus, while some other friends went with Menthol Latham. My cousin just had a baby daughter that they named Flora Bell after the mother's great grandma who hated her name. I met a guy whose name was Cash and his wife's was Cary.

    I don't think these have been posted yet, but Frank Zappa named his kids Diva Zappa, Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa and Ahmet Zappa. There's also the Phoenix family (real name here); River Phoenix (River Jude Bottom), Leaf Phoenix (Joaquin Rafael Phoenix), Summer Joy Phoenix (<-real name and had a son named Indiana August Affleck named for late brother and married to Casey Affleck, Ben's brother), Rain(bow) Phoenix (Rain Joan of Arc Phoenix had a son named Jonas Winter) and Liberty Phoenix (Libertad Mariposa Phoenix and has kids named Rio Everest Phoenix, Indigo Orion Phoenix and Scarlette Jasmine Phoenix-Asch). I'm sure that last part is as clear as mud, maybe I should make it into a flowchart

    A couple of my favorites:

    Tropicana Tabasco (named because her mom could only drink the orange juice); not really sure why "Tabasco". When she was about 8 she had a baby brother she named "Rainbow". Still see members of this family and its been almost 20 years!@
    My all time favorite is 15 or so years ago we were putting a woman to sleep for a crash C-birth. She woke up in recovery and said she heard the most beautiful name: Meconium. So poor Meconium Delight Jones is somewhere...

    i decided, since the 2nd "strange baby names" thread was getting so long, let's start another.


    twins from last night - gypsy and cinnamon. (what a great start to their porn/stripper careers)

    orion - (baby boy) - ok, this one did have a romantic, constellation engagement story behind it, so it's not so bad, but still a strange, out-there name.

    orzio - another baby boy - poor kid

    and, drumroll please..................... :hatparty:

    happy birthday to the winner of the year:

    queen messiah jesus christ

    oh yes, that was the baby's full, legal name for the birth certificate. oh how wonderful.

    give me a few more births to attend at work, and i'm sure to have more to add. i have definitely noticed a trend towards the unusual/unique names lately. some of them sound and look just like random letters thrown together, that i can't even recall them once i get home.

    the poor, poor kids........

    My best friend's daughter is name Nevaeh - she was named after a relative of Native American background - they said it is an old family name. I had never heard it before, but apparently it's been around for a while.

    My oldest son had a teacher named Mrs. Butt. Her husband's name was Harry. Yes, Harry Butt.

    There is a GYN doc in Virginia named Harry C. Beaver. (I'm not making this up. Everybody knows him.)

    When I was pregnant the first time, we had a baby name book. Two (three actually) names that they knew of that were awful:

    IfJesushadnotdiedforyoursinsthouwouldstbedamedBare bones. Kid eventually shortened his name to Damned Barebones.

    And twin girls in Texas: Kate and Duplikate.

    I can't attest personally to tha last two since they were published in a book and I didn't know them personally.
