An Irish Christening

Paddy's pregnant sister was in a terrible car accident and went into a deep coma. After nearly six months, she woke up and saw that she was no longer pregnant. Frantically she asked the doctor about her baby. The doctor replied, "You had twins, a boy and a girl. The babies are fine. However, they were poorly at birth and had to be christened immediately, so your brother Paddy came in and named them".

The woman thought to herself, "Oh suffering Lordy, no, not me brother. He's a clueless idiot". Expecting the worst, she asked the doctor, "Well, what's my daughter's name?".
"Denise," said the doctor.
The new mother was somewhat relieved and thought to herself, "Wow, that's a really beautiful name. I guess I was wrong about my brother, I really like Denise".

Then she asked, "What's the boy's name?".
The doctor replied, "Denephew".
