    Where I used to work we (largely Hispanic population) we had an older man with the name of Circuncisin. You guessed it...circumcision. Now, I realize as a parent it's your prerogative what to name your baby, but for the life of me, I cannot visualize looking down at my sweet newborn baby boy and naming him Circumcision.

    "Coonception (actual spelling). I don't get it."

    Concepcion is a common hispanic name. Yes, it means conception: it is in honor of hte Immaculare Conception.

    In every elevator in my area on the inspection sheet you will see a picture of a lovely lady-

    Cherie Berry

    She was on a local radio station recently and explained that when her father was in France during the war, he heard them say "Mon Cherie" and loved it so it is pronounced shah-REE.

    I went to school with a girl named Polly Esther Sheets!!!

    And I had a patient (in dental field) named Mohammed Mohammed.
    And another patient had a last name of Butkis.

    Once worked with twins, America and Prescious, that was nice.

    My daughter had a student naimed "shithead" pronounced shi-theed. I promise this is for real. When she first saw it on the roster she had to call me in hysterics.
    I know someone named Shithead, pronounced Shy-Thed. Class of '99, people called her Meeka, which is her middle name (Shameka). :angryfire:angryfire:angryfire Think her parent's should have been drug tested before they left the hospital!:trout:

    Last night in the program at a middle school concert, I found an Odin and a Champagne.
    There was a picture in the paper of kids cleaning up the neighborhood and one's first name was President.

    I work with a lady named Entrence. There's always much confusion when some asks, "Where is Entrence?" and someone who doesn't know who she's talking about points to the front door!

    Also used to work for county government, and there was a lady in a different division named "Cinnamon Wild". Real name, sweet lady.
