Lighthearted obviously

Taking a Hx from a pt today and she listed her medications and I thought that some of the names would be good for children!!

Alverine (F) & Zaluron (M) - twins !

Perhaps I should have been concentrating a bit more....! wink

You want to name babies after drugs? hmm. Lighthearted or not, as someone on chemo this is not a connection that sits well with me.

Lighthearted you say...
Vincristine was one of DS’s chemo drugs. It might work for a boy or girl, a mixture of Vinnie and Christine.

Bendroflumethiazide, or Ben for short.

The amount of sominex I took (for its anti nausea effect rather than for sleep) during my pregnancy I think I should have named my son it. And it sounds like a strong but interesting name
