Just for Fun: Naming Body Parts

PositiveTips

Have you ever wondered why bones and organs and muscles are named the way they are? In most cases the names were chosen so they could easily be remembered--in early Greek or Latin. For instance, the hole at the bottom of the skull is named the "foramen magnum." Very impressive? It simply means a "really big hole." 

PositiveTip: Have a little fun this holiday season by educating yourself on the naming of body parts--then share this new knowledge with your guests!
