An obstetrician from Kolding Hospital has good reason to feel proud.
Twice in the course of a few months Mohammed Khalil has earned the ultimate honor - to have a child named after him, writes Lillebælt Hospital on its Facebook page.
Two ethnic Danish couples have chosen to name their newborn boys after the 48-year-old Mohammed Khalil, who came to Denmark from Beirut at an age of 18, BT writes.
Both are now named Khalil.
"That's a huge pat on my back, that I do my job well. I'm not a perfect person or a perfect doctor. But I have got to do something right. I feel very privileged to be allowed to be in a position where I can help others. It is I who should thank, "says Mohammed Khalil.
One of the two new mothers ended up with an emergency caesarean section, and she and her husband have written a long letter to Mohammed Khalil, in which they thank for his professional treatment.
According to Khalil the mother asked for his name during the operation, but he had certainly not anticipated that the little boy would get his name.
"We laughed, and then I forgot about it. It was not until some time after that I was told that they had named their child after me, "he says.
Khalil means 'my friend' in Arabic.
I wonder why they didn't pick his first name, Mohammed. It seems to be very popular these days.
