In Frank Zappa's autobiography, there's a story about when Dweezel was about to be born, how the nurse wouldn't admit the mom until she changed the name on some piece of paperwork. This nurse was going to let her drop this kid athe reception desk unless they agreed to NOT name the kid Dweezel. Apparently when he was several years old, he found out that his name legally WASN'T Dweezel, and made his parents get it changed, as that is all they ever called him any ways.

LOL, also wasn't his daughter called Moon Unit 2 ? can't imagine the nurses were happy with that either, somehow

then there's Bob Geldof's daughters: Fi-Fi Trixibelle and Peaches Honeyblossom

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow's kids: Apple and Moses ???

Maybe this is old news to some, but it's the best thing I learned in 2008.  Matthew McConaughey has a brother.. his name? Rooster!  Even better! Rooster's son's name?  MILLER LYTE MCCONAUGHEY!!!!  I just can't be mad at that for some reason. 

I wonder what Rooster's nickname is?

My sister works as a maternity nurse; she had to intervene to keep a teenage mother from naming her daughter "that beautiful name the doctor said in the delivery room" -


Placenta.

Indy?  Your story gave me quite a jolt: my brother was an obstetrician. He told the same story.  What is more against the odds: that it happened at least *twice* or that your sister and my brother worked the same hospital, together?   Buggedout

My sister is a nurse in the Houston, TX area, so it depends on where your brother works.

The young lady in question was about 16 and from a poor black neighborhood. I guess, if you don't know what it means, "Placenta" does sound kind of cool and feminine.

Well, he was not in Texas so that answers that; but the mother in question was of similar background, and yes the word itself does have a pleasant enough sound.

If I were to ever have a daughter, right now I'm thinking I'd want to name her Dorothy after my maternal grandmother - she's been gone about 5 1/2 years now and it's been too long since we've had a Dorothy in the family.  I'm thinking if I ever had a son I'm kind of thinking Harlan after my great-uncle who went to fight in Korea, went MIA, and was never heard from again.

I like interesting names that are off the beaten track but aren't wierd.  My girlfriend's name is Maya, and whilst that's a fairly common name in some cultures, it isn't so much in our country, so it suits really well.

When I was younger I always wanted to name my first kid if it was a boy or first dog Zaius [whichever came first] but Maya has since persuaded me that it's best not to call the kid Zaius and now I'll actually have to think about it.   Wink


That Placenta story is truly inspiring.  What an absolute idiot!  Still, if she stuck with that name, that kid would surely either grow up messed up beyond belief or have balls of steel.

In other name news, my brother went to school with an 'Eden Cox' which was a fairly bad name for a girl...

Almost everyone I work with has a kid named Aiden, or kid with a name that rhymes with Aiden.  I told my girlfriend that if we have kids, nothing that rhymes with Aiden shall be used.  Honestly, I'm waiting for the day that everyone brings their children to work so I can say, "Hey, Aiden!" and see how many kids look over at me.  

The names that really annoy me are the ones that are combinations of two or more names.  The worst: Trason, a combo of Tracy and Jason.  It sounded like a redneck trying to say "tracin'."

No, just Moon Unit as I understand it. Also Diva Muffin for the youngest of the four, and Ahmet (who likes to point out that his name rhymes with VOMIT).

All in all, Diva Zappa is one of the coolest people on the planet. She's damn good looking, and she does a bunch of work for the Watoto Fund, an organization that helps, amongst other things, Kenyan orphans, many of them victims of female genitalia mutilation. I've read a bit about her, and in this day of Paris Hilton and company, she's the type of person that makes one think maybe the human race isn't COMPLETELY without hope.

My sister has a unique name - Clinta, a combination of my Dad's name, Clint, and my Mom's name, Laura.  I think it has a very nice ring to it.  In all my life, I have only run into one other person named Clinta, a church secretary who worked for my Dad in Dallas when I was a teen.

Well my sister works as a neonatal maternity nurse also (ARNP) and I've heard the same story .... hmm so that makes 3 times just on this board, so I'm beginning to think this is a Urban Legend.

My sister has one of those made-up names, I remember hearing that she is the only person with that name, , ,but, , when I was in the Army and stationed in Texas, I knew a girl with the same name, and she was a half a year older. The best part is, , ,the girl I knew was a stripper.

Good guess.  Snopes thinks so too: http://www.snopes.com/racial/language/names.asp (WARNING: bad language)

I imagine that under questioning the sources would say they didn't actually witness it themselves, but heard it from someone else.

there was a story not too long ago about how someone was trying to keep these parents from naming their kids a number. Not 7 or 9. But some long ass number that is a computer code or some crap.

btw i work in insurance and see all kinds of names. I've seen it ALL.
red brick, honey delight, james bond, I used to keep a list because i got so tickled by some of the names. After years tho, nothing suprises me. The list is long gone.

my cousin lived in hawaii and of course over there they love hawaiian names that mean something. Unfortunately for her kids they all live in texas now. So with middle names like "Kapuamakamae" your not likely to ever tell your friends what your middle name is
