What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 38

    [QUOTE=MamaTheNurse]when I worked L&D, we had a baby named "Tequila Rose"QUOTE]

    I have a cousin named Alize. I'm half puerto rican so i dont know if that's a spanish thing or if my uncle just really like the drink.

    I cant think of any names that havent already been mentioned. I always thought my name was weird, Ciji, but i've grown to like explaining where it came from. If anyone watched Knots Landing then you'll know. The downsid is getting people to pronounce it right like C G. if they do say it then they ask oh what does that stand for? At least i didnt get stuck with Placenta or something.

    How about names such as Marigold and Mariesilver. A lady whom I knew very well was adamant that she name her godchild Marigold, reason being that "Midas" named his daughter Marigold and everything she touched turned to gold. The mother was so impressed with the name that she named her other daughter Marisilver.

    In another situation a priest insisted that the godmother name a boy St. Rose because he was born on "St. Rose's day."

    Quote from leslieanne
    I knew of a girl with an interesting name back in highschool.

    The story went that after a traumatic pregnancy/delivery a baby girl was born. Her mother was inspired to name her daughter Miracle. Nice hunh? It so happens that the last name was Fingers, hence the name Miracle Fingers.

    Turns out Mom knew what she was doing, little Miracle turned out to be a fantastic basketball player.

    Once, there was this lady and she had twins. She didnt know what to name them so she named them after the foods she craved when she was pregnant...Lemon jello and Orange jello!

    Seriously, I first heard that story in 1989, right after I graduated from nursing school and started in NICU at a large teaching hospital. I heard that one and about the lady who thought the hospital had named her baby....Fe Male' or the lady that thought Chlamydia was a beautiful name. These stories have gone around for years.

    If Lemonjello and Orangejello do exist out there somewhere do you think they have a clue about their place in medical folklore?

    I went to school with Beaver Funk. Thats no joke, he was very nice. I hope he changed his name.

    My little sister was almost named Pebbles Lynn.

    I think I will start keeping a record of silly names. When they come up I always tell myself I will remember them but I never do.

    Ok, so growing up I thought I was the only one with a strange name. I have come across quite a few recently now that my own kids are in school.

    A few that come to mind and some in my friends kids school are:

    Trajan (is that the condom that failed you?)
    Edoard (aren't we missing an O at the end?)
    Quinn for a boy
    Jade for a boy
    Jaden for a girl
    Aidan for a girl

    And now mine...Nyree is my name and I get asked at least 3 times a week about it. It has nothing to do with my heritage, not a family name, nothing. My parents saw a show 30 odd years ago and it was the name of an actress on the show. Even weirder..she changed the spelling from Ngaire to Nyree so it was spelled how its pronounced. She was from New Zealand.

    - Nyree

    Actual names from our NICN and PICU:

    Acknowledge A Blessing
    Heaven L'Angel MiJoy
    Harry Peter (he was the III - went by the nickname of "Hank")

    We had one little girl whose neuro assessment got skewed because she would not respond to us when we called her by her name - we did the best we could - family was very offended we could not pronounce her name correctly - I can't remember exactly - something like Chutea - the pronunciation was nothing near what the spelling appeared to be.

    Truth is always stranger than fiction.

    Did a rotation in our NICU a few weeks ago. Surviving twin was named Lavita (reminds me of the ED drug!). Twin that did not survive was named Medusah.
