one daddy was so in love with his new daughter, and she was his little princess, he insisted on naming her "princess." mom was a bit appalled, she made sure that the middle name was elizabeth so the kid would have a choice of which name to use. wish i could remember the last name, but frankly princess elizabeth is actually quite enough!

The strangest name that I ever heard was "Phantom" - yes, as in Phantom of the Opera. This was my cousin's "step mother-in-law" (if there's such a thing) daughter's name for a boy. The other kid had a weird name, too, can't remember it at the moment. With a name like Phantom, I don't think he'd have a ghost of a chance escaping playground teasing... or my bad sense of humor.
Needless to say, we did a lot of eye rolling when we heard that she'd named her baby Phantom.

Jul 23, '05Occupation: RN, CHPN Specialty: inpatient hospice house ; From: US ; Joined: Jul '02; Posts: 143; Likes: 18I worked in a NICU I talked someone out of naming their baby Meconium and the staff and social worker tallked someone else (16 year olds) out of calling their twin babies Shi'thead (pronounced Sha'heed and...sorry i can't remember what they were going to name the other twin. The reason we got social work involved on that one was because the kids were laughing as they were trying to think of a way to name them that would be funny. We considered it a sign of what type of parents they were about to become. It is one thing when you name your kid something like that out of stupidity but something else when you do it as a joke.

The thing that amazes me, is these women name their children names that when you look at the you can not figure out how to pronounce it, and the parent is actually angry that you misprounced the babies name.
Nevaeh was a very common one.
Growing up, my bestfriend was Tuesday Knight.
In High School there was a girl a year behind me named Tommora Dream
In 2 Doctors offices that I call frequently there is a Starr, Diamond, Bambi (yes, real name) and Jezell.
