    I've worked postpartum/nursey and NICU... I've seen so many crazy names that we can't even pronounce, but I've forgotten them now.... HOWEVER, the most recent weird name we've seen is LAKE..... We're assuming that's where he was conceived

    Oh yeah, and my dad's middle name is A..... just the letter... doesn't stand for anything at all.. I always tell him it stands for A**hole lol (as a joke)

    How about the people who add De Le on to the first name to make something new. How would you like to go through life as a Deshawn or Detom or Lesue or Lelisa.

    The most unusal name I've seen so far was..Bacardi (like the rum). I've also seen the middle name of Seamus....
    That's just wrong!
    Seamus is pronounced SHAYmus, maybe that makes it more familiar

    I am not a OB/GYN nurse but I have had some crazy names.

    A couple at my grandmother's church had daughters named Sundae (Sunday sp?) and Sparkle.

    Sundae named her daughter Blue Azlyn Phillip and then last name

    Had a patient named Kassim Kassim (male)

    There is a Dr.Nutting (urologist)

    Cinnamon the ER nurse

    Beautiful the lab tech (Hi This is Beautiful calling from the lab to report a abnormal result. The first time I heard that I almost fell over in a dead faint and had to try hard not to laugh so hard that i would cry)

    I have also heard of the names like meconium, placenta,vagina, etc

    Next door to my grandma named their son Cooper last name Brown

    Destiny, a co workers daughter

    DeJanes (De Jan Ey) not sure how to spell it.

    Secretary named Karen Kiss om wanted to name her Kandy

    I know that there are more, but I can't think of any.

    I saw this one recently- not on a child!
    First name Hurry (not Harry, but Hurry)
    Middle Name Kane.

    I also know a married couple: Joe Bob and Jo Carole.

    Growing up I knew sisters named Bobbie Jean and Jo Earle. I heard one of them say that they frequently got mail addressed to "Mr."

    My name is Summer Dae. I was born in august and mom liked actress doris day but still can't figure out the "e" spelling. Guess she didn't want it to be too weird. ha. I've grown to love it.

    Yeah, I love the "designer" names I've seen: Porsche, Allante' (remember the Caddy by that name?), Mercedes, Lexus, Chanel, Nautica (not kidding)

    But the one name that, hands down, took the cake was a little girl that came into the ER by the name of "Sexkissia".

    sigh. :icon_roll

    How about Merlexy. Mom didn't know if she was conceived in a Mercedes or a Lexus.

    A little boy named Happy. Every time I hear that, that old song from "South Pacific" runs through my head.......

    Wee bit off topic, but my brother-in-law apparently had a doll when he was a kid who he called "Corrosive".
