Baby Names

Overheard in Labor Hall

This is a conversation an attending and two residents were having at the nurses' station in Labor Hall over the weekend.

Attending: M-E-L-A-D-I?

Resident 1: No, M-A-L-A-D-I-I

Attending: Malady???

Resident 1: That can't be right.

Resident 2: Here's her chart: M-E-L-A-D-I-I

Attending: Mi'lady??

Resident 1: Is it like Hawai'i? Me-la-di-i?

Resident 2: It's Melody.

Resident 1 and Attending: Ohhh. Melody.

Resident 2: Yeah, because here the firstborn is Harmanii.

Attending: Wow. Poor kids.

 

In case you thought doctors were all business all the time. Wink

    I never tell a parent on here that their name choice is bad but i have to make an exception today.  Melody and Harmony aren't to terrible but to spell them that way is horrible, poor kids.

  • DH is a pediatric nurse so he gets to see all sorts of wacky kids names.  I loved the one day he came home from the ER and went straight for a piece of paper and pen.  After he wrote on it, he handed it to me and asked me to please read the name.  He had written "Diarrhea".  I giggled and read it as any normal person would read it and thought it was a horrible joke.  Apparently, I was wrong.  A woman had named her little girl that but pronounced it Dee-r-ea.

    I guess that same night they also had a set of twin boys come in name Boya (Boy A) and Boyb (Boy B).  Makes me feel a little better about some of my name ideas!

  • Lol - when my brothers' sons were born we joked that he was going to name them Pete and Repete.... but Boya and Boyb....

    we raise cattle and once had a set of female twins that we named BabeA [bay-bay]and BaBe [bay-bee] because the A and B were part of their ID numbers.... but Boya and Boyb.....

     Boya and Boyb.....

    Poor kids are going to suffer when they get to school.
    Same with Diarrhea

    I really, really hope that the Boya/Boyb situation was just an ID issue. I was "Baby B" for a week after birth (twin was "Baby A" - that's what our official hospital bracelets say because it took my parents a week to decide on names due to the shock of having twins - they didn't know until delivery). So yeah, I can feasibly see something like that being put on a bracelet/ID for tiny infants by parents who really will name their kids legit names (just hoping for their sakes).
