A nurse has recounted the time she called out for a patient named Liam in the waiting room only to get a shock when his mum told her she’d been saying his name incorrectly.
When it comes to name pronunciation, it’s no secret that there are some incredibly complicated names out there.
Then there are the more common names, that most people have no problem saying out loud.
However, every now and then it seems there’s a crossover between the two, as a parent takes a popular name and decides to alter the pronunciation – but keep the spelling the same.
One woman has recounted an awkward situation she found herself in after getting a child’s name wrong.
Taking to TikTok, the nurse admitted that she’s bad with names but didn’t think she could butcher the name Liam after she saw it on a patient’s file.
