SIL works in a hospital and has seen these names (former UL's!)

L-a (also went to school with her son)
Orangejello (or-ANG-gel-oh)
Limejello (lee-MON-gel-oh)
Placenta
Urine (ur-in-EE)
I think your SIL is pulling your leg.  See http://www.snopes.com/racial/language/names.asp. and http://www.snopes.com/racial/language/le-a.asp

And there's no way that "Limejello" would be "lee-MON-gel-oh." The story is "Lemonjello". "Limejello" would end up "lee-may-gel-oh" or something.

I'm a member of snopes since 01, but thank you.  ;).  Hence the "former ULs" in the title.

I don't think she's pulling my leg.  She's not that kind of person, but I suppose it's possible.  According to her, she's actually had patients with those names.  As a librarian, I've actually some pretty bad names as well.

And I have no idea why Limejello was pronounced that way, but she actually had to clarify the spelling and pronounciation with the patient.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

In elementary school I had twin classmates named Timmy and Tommy.

Their full names were Timothy and Tomothy.

That one made me laugh out loud.  Poor Tomothy.

I actually sorta like the pronunciation on this one. Wouldn't give it to a kid, but I may have to use it for a character someday. Just have to figure out a halfway decent spelling...

Oranngelo might work. I had to double the "n", though, or the "orange" was too obvious.

If she can provide ANY proof for these names, snopes is going to love her! And everyone who is interested in names will love her as well, because each time weird names are discussed the -Jello twins, L-a, Urine, Placenta, Nosmo King, S**thead, Latrine are mentioned.

There have been people looking for the -Jello twins for a long time and each time they have asked for proof it can't be provided. It's an old, persistent and very popular UL and I have a hard time believing, in this day and age, that with all the digital information available to us, no one has been able to find the -Jello twins.

Icelandic background? -dottir is the Icelandic equivalent of -son, but for women. Traditionally, Jon's son and daughter would be Sven Jonson and Helga Jonsdottir. :)

How about Angelo? Real name, close pronunciation.
