    :trout: Ken and Edie couldn't decide what to name their son so they named him Kenedie. I hoped it would be pronounced "Kennedy" but NOOOOOOO. It was Ken-E-dee!

    We just had a little girl named "Wednesday". She was born on Wednesday.
    Thank goodness she wasn't born on Halloween!

    Nevayah (they said it was heaven spelled backwards) although they spelled it diffrently so it WASN'T heaven spelled backwards. I tried telling them a couple times then gave up. if they thing Nevayah is heaven spelled backwards (it is actually hayaven) spelled backwards Then I am NOT going to change their mind

    Montserrat, for a girl.

    Nice, I suppose, but she was in the NICU and someone made her a cute name sign. At first glance it looked like "Monster rat"

    Didn't hear/see this as a nurse, but when I was an ESL teacher.

    A Vietnamese lady was named Me Yume..............except she spelled it "My Dung" in English letters.

    Perhaps he should have gone for the full 'Richard'. LOL

    There have been bunches of "different" names, but a couple that come to mind include, pronounced "ab-ci-dee," and she spelled it a-b-c-d....easy to remember, I guess. Another one spelled her baby's name, Pajama and pronounced it "pa-jha-may," or something like that. I've also heard Seth Thomas (named after the clock on the wall, which was her focal point), and Windy Beach (first and last name).

    How about first name OCEAN, middle name BREEZE, last name CREWS (as in CRUISE). I knew a girl who named her child this--actually, it's a pretty name

    Haven't come across any unusual names at the hospital lately, but while working on a Toys for Tots hotline for the holidays I've come across some doosies. There was a girl named "Dream". Some of them I can't even remember how to spell but were really out there. But I think that some parents think it's really cute when they name a girl "Honey" with the last name of "Bear." It might be cute when they're little, but what if that little sweet little girl wants actually gets a brain and wants to get into management one day?

    I can see it now. She's the manager of an oil company or something, and they tell people, "Yeah. You need to speak with Honey Bear."

    Poor kid.
