Google "Caverject" if you don't know what it is. There was a pharmacist who was almost totally bald even though he was barely 40, and his head would turn red every time he heard that word. He had a desk job there, and people would walk by his desk and say "Caverject" just to watch his head turn red. It never stopped being funny.
As a longtime R.E.M. fan, I also thought the prescription written by William Barry, M.D. of Athens, Georgia was a hoot too. I realize the surname isn't spelled the same as the drummer emeritus', but I'm sure he's heard it all. (You know, "When are you going to rejoin the band?")
Dr. Barry is a dermatologist.

A study was done a while back at BU about "unique" names and apparently they found a lot of these kids received negative attention because of their names. From teachers, friends, etc.
JMO of course.
But, in keeping with the feel of the thread, my patient named her daughter Hadababe. Okay.

Certainly the parents could have avoided the teasing by choosing another name, but what about the child?
I realize a name itself isn't confidential (hey, they were born, right? no secrets violated there) but I'd hate to have them see the mocking in print this way. Just my humble opinion.
