What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 59

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

    Okay, nooowwwww I read the whole first page. What's the deal with those names? My mom (an ER nurse at the time) said that she encountered this woman who named her girls that. Is it actually more of an urban legend?

    My mother is a teacher assistant at an elementary school. One of her students is named Ladie Diana. Apparently her mother liked the princess.

    Years ago when I was a phlebotomist in the ER I had to draw blood from a baby girl named Alize (for those who don't know, it's a low price malt liquor). When I retold this story a month ago a co-worker said "That's my cousins baby! She named her after the alcohol that got her so drunk she got knocked up that night." Wha?

    I know I've posted on this thread before, but the madness continues; the latest:

    Oaxie & Binford; boy & girl twins (all we can think of is "Tool Time"). Family names apparently; which I can respect.

    Escher; this is used as a first name for a boy; named after some famous artist of some sort.

    Samia Samone S______ (last name starts with S also). I don't dislike this name; it's more the catagory of unusual.

    I have a friend that named her first daugher Britney Morgan Worsenburger. Doesn't sound strange? Check the initials, and yes it was intentional. BMW

    Okay, here's one. VaGina. I'm not kidding. Mom saw the word "vagina" and thought that was just a beautiful name, pronounced it "va - Jeena". I wasn't in L&D when she did it, but all I could think was , why didn't someone explain it to her??? It's amazing, but there are so many women in socioeconomically depressed areas who really just do not know very much. At least the daughter can later shorten it to just Gina if she so chooses.
    i went to high school with a girl named Vagina...pronounced Va-Gina...so sad. my mom worked at a hospital years ago and heard Placenta. i've also met a girl named Darling and one named Precious. crazy.

    I'm not in L&D, but recently treated a pt whose 1st name was Marvellouss (that's how it was spelled). His sister was named Genius. I guess their mom had high hopes. . .

    I used to tell a joke when I was a kid about a women having twins. She named the female twin Denise, and the Boy Denephew. Sounds like I better not say that to loud around a delivery room.

    I was in OB dept last week and a woman had a very special baby. Matter of fact she named her Special.

    Knew of a boy(thank goodness) growing up that was named Easy Rider Ridens. When he got older he went by Easy.

    Some of these names are crazy! When I worked at a hospital in Colorado, we actually had a young mom name her daughter Abcde,
    pronounced Ab-ca-dee. Poor little girl!
    The nurses tried to explain to her that she needed to actually put a name on the birth certificate and not just letters and the mom insisted that it was her name!
    I thought the mom I saw with this baby name had invented that concept. I took care of little Abcde Shifflett on a clinical. Her name was pronounced ab-si-dee, though.
