Baby name story: Normah

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

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

What did parents Sabrina Bujang and Razalie Sidek Shafie name their daughter?

Normah, after the medical center.

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