    Mine wasn't so much having something named after me but.. before I was a nursing student I worked as a nursing assistant for many years and on one occassion I had done something for a patient and he was so pleased with his care and my professionalism that he began to nickname me Dr White (as this was my surname) I wouldnt mind but there is a well known brand of sanitary towels in the UK with this name!

    Once I pointed this out to him, which he found amusing, he insisted on calling me Dr Red instead, which was the colour of my hair at the time... Bless him!

    I worked with a nurse in OB who was such an awesome nurse that over the years, had 20-25 babies named after her (her name was Rosemary)

    My name is Angel, so everyone at the LTC facility that I work at thinks that god sent them an Angel to take care of them. How sweet.
