I've heard more than one story about HCPs freaking out when they find out a woman is named Candida. That's a common Hispanic name, and was also the title of a song by Tony Orlando. It's also not pronounced the same way as the fungal infection.

One of my friends has a daughter who was born before the name "Olivia" really took off, and this name has an alternate spelling that I won't use here because it's unique enough to identify her. I've never had a problem with it because her daughter is this name, and NOT Olivia.
