Baby Name Story – Baby Named After Malaysian Hospital

On 4 July 1988, the Normah Medical Specialist Centre opened in Petra Jaya, Malaysia.

The very next day, the hospital welcomed its first baby–a baby girl.

What did parents Sabrina Bujang and Razalie Sidek Shafie name their daughter? Normah, after the centre.

(The centre itself had been named in honor of Normah, the late wife of former Chief Minister of Sarawak Rahman Ya’kub.)
