Midwives have revealed some of the and weirdest names parents have tried to register for their newborn babies.

The now-deleted Reddit thread was shared by Mum Central.

Some of the names – like Colon, Vagina and Death – will really leave you shaking your head.

Two parents even wanted to call their child death, one midwife revealed.

“I could not stand for it, so I told them every time I went to type it into the birth certificate it changed the form to a death certificate,” the midwife wrote.

“Thankfully, they bought it and the girl is now named Morticia.”

One commenter said as a registrar she had received birth certificates with the names Killer, Sweet Prayer Sunrise and – wait for it – Syphilis.

“I lived with a student midwife and the first set of twins she delivered were named Red and Blue,” another recalled.

“As a med student, I had a patient who wanted to name her child Mudpiles,” one midwife said.

Other weird names shared on the Reddit thread included:

“My classmate’s mother was a maternity nurse, and she once had a couple who wanted to name their son ‘Collin’, but wanted to give him a unique spelling. So they chose to spell it C-O-L-O-N.”

“My grandmother once put Virginia on a birth certificate when the parents had requested Vagina but didn’t know how to spell it.”

“I once had a student named Linoleum. Some midwife definitely dropped the ball on that one.”

“As a Family Medicine Resident, I personally delivered two different girls named Khaleesi. This was around 2016, well before Season 8 (when Khaleesi goes on a murderous rampage). I imagine there might be some buyer’s remorse.”

“My co-worker went to school with a girl named Fallopia. I feel sorry for her when she’s in biology class and they talk about Fallopian tubes.”

“I had a coworker named Trina, and when she was pregnant, she told me that she and her husband had decided to name their baby Latrine. I had to explain to her that she was naming her poor baby after the hole in the ground that soldiers s*** into.”

“My husband wanted to name our son Truck. Almost ended in divorce. Needless to say, none of our boys are named Truck and we are still married.”
