    Hi guys I'm new here but I think I have a couple of winners for you in the weird baby name discussion are you ready? In high school I knew of a girl name Aphrodite, her sister Isis and Brother Buffalo Zeus! all greek gods. I also knew of a family last name Beaver the 2 youngest were Pacer and Cricket. I also have heard the Placenta story and the Female story before.

    I was told by a nurse I knew that one of her patients had eaten lemon jello and orange jello after delivering twin boys. She named the boys Le'monjelo and Le'ranjelo.

    I worked as a midwife in the UK in the 1980's and early 1990s. We suffered a lot of bad names - one family called their first born son after every single member of the Manchester United football team.

    The worst craze for name giving was in the 1980s when the TV programmes Dallas, Dynasty and the Carringtons were on the TV screen in the UK. We had a lot of babies called Blake, Alexis and Crystal after that.

    My husband's family wanted us to name our son Walter Albert Reginald - not something I was prepared to sanction - especially as our surname starts with the letter 'T' so his initials would have been W.A.R.T. poor kid, I just couldn't do it to him...
