    Once upon a time, I had a Hispanic patient who was pregnant with her 7th child. This was long before we always knew the baby's sex. She had 6 boys at home and was determined this baby would be a girl. She liked my name and so Nyla Garcia was into this world.

    Well, I don't work in L&D (and don't really intend to) aunt has a farm and that farm has goats and those goats get naughty sometimes. So somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon, there is in fact a goat named after yours truly, bleeting and biting and making her namesake proud!


    PS - I'm serious, I am not making fun, I have a goat named after me. Would you make something like that up?!!?

    Awwwww. I kid around and tell people the house rule is if its a girl they have to name her after one of her labor room nurses...Breaks the ice, for sure!

    As a nurse practitioner at a clinic, I "delivered" a baby in the women's restroom. The mom named the baby after me, which was quite an honor since she was Hispanic and couldn't even pronounce my name! And there is no equivalent for "Gail" in Spanish.

    I often wonder how the kid is and if she can pronounce her name!

    I had a patient that named her son after me and the doctor! My first name is his middle name.
