...not a real human one, though. Or even a fuzzy one.

I'm a BLS instructor, among the many things I do, and all my CPR mannequins have names. It was purely for my own amusement at first, but then I found that once I told my students their mannequin had a name, they got attached to it in many cases. Human pack mentality can be so funny. (For those who care, the four-pack of adult mannequins are John, Paul, George, and Ringo, the three in the other carrying bag are Moe, Larry, and Curly and the lone ranger that hangs out mostly in the trunk of my car is Roderick. I actually didn't name him; someone just called him that during a Code Blue drill. "Rod the Bod" does sound pretty cool, though.)

I had one infant mannequin, Annie (even though she's a not a Laerdal)...finally got a second. Hence this post. She needs a name of her own. (And she's a girl, because she's wearing one of my niece's old outfits. ;)) I've been drawing a blank since I picked her up from the training center. So...hit me with your best shot. Puns gleefully considered.

Angelica, like from the Rugrats.

But in keeping with the times, it requires an alternative spelling to be hip! Like:

Anjelica

Angelika

Anjelika

Anngelica

Annjelica

Anngelika

Annjelika

Angelikka

Angelicca

Xangelica

I mean, there are certainly options. :roflmao:

By the way, did you guys know the newer Prestan models actually have ball-and-socket shoulder joints so you can fully rotate their arms? I did not, before today. But now my little darling looks like she's leading the AHA Praise Choir.

My friend just saw the picture I posted above and promptly called her Gloria...

But Avalyn is certainly tempting for the meaning, too...

DECISIONS.
