A woman pregnant with twins goes into labor unexpectedly.

Her brother drove her to the hospital, since her husband was away on business. It was a very risky delivery, and the doctors had to put her under during the procedure.

The woman woke up and immediately asked, "Are my babies okay?"

The nurse on call said reassuringly, "Oh yes, your children were born healthy, a boy and a girl. However -- your brother had to name them because we needed to get the birth certificates filled out."

Nervously, she asked, "What did he name my daughter?"

"Denise," the nurse replied.

Relieved, the woman said, "That's a lovely name! I was worried he'd come up with something truly awful. And my son?"

"Denephew."
