    OMG.. I've just had the worst day... but all these names have me cracking up! I work as a Health Unit Coordinator on a Peds unit... we've definitely had our share of bizarre names... but the kicker was when one of our favorite OB/GYN MDs was going to name his own baby Summers Eve.... :uhoh21:

    I had a patient whose baby's middle name was Nevaeh- pronounced
    Na-Vay-Ah. (Heaven spelled backwards.)
    Nice and creative. I like the sound of it.

    One recently was Oceania for a girl. of course there have been many wierd names that I can't remember. (I like this name.)

    Twina and Twinb (twin 'a' and twin 'b') by parents who thought the babies had already been named. (That's sad that the parents thought their children had already been named.

    How about Richard, shortened to Dick. Last name: Glick. Of course, he's on OB/GYN in our area.

    Think about it.

    One unfortunate little girl was called Melena, and although the parents clearly had no idea, I thought "bloody stool" every time I heard the name.
    I know a Melena too, and until I read your post and googled I had no idea either! I doubt anyone outside the medical profession has any idea, really.

    There are two urologists in our area (same practice) whose last names are Petrus (long "e") and Whisnant (s pronounces like "z"). Hmmm.

    in 1983 when in nursing school the names of pts could still be placed on the outside of hospital room doors. there was a pt named Bunney Easter= Easter,Bunney on the door. very humorous when you are 18!!!

    Not a patient of mine, but a friend told me this one the other day. Child's name is pronounced Mackenzie, which is not so unusual, but here's how the parents decided to spell it, apostrophes included... M'K'N'Z'Y.... my question is W'H'Y!

    can't say it was a 'weird' name, per se....but one name that i have had at least 2 pts. name their kid was 'precious.' now, some people may think that's endearing or whatever, but to me it sounds like a name you'd give your poodle or a stripper.

    i know somebody named her baby " asia",.............no offense, it sounded more like a porn star
