Um, it's not a salad...

My MIL and SIL keep calling a Cesarean Section a "Cesear" -- it's not a salad people ;)

    c&p:

    There are three theories about the origin of the name:

    1. The name for the procedure is said to derive from a Roman legal code called "Lex Caesarea", which allegedly contained a law prescribing that the baby be cut out of its mother's womb in the case that she dies before giving birth.[5]
    2. The derivation of the name is also often attributed to an ancient story, told in the first century A.D. by Pliny the Elder, which claims that an ancestor of Caesar was delivered in this manner.[6]
    3. An alternative etymology suggests that the procedure's name derives from the Latin verb caedere (supine stem caesum), "to cut," in which case the term "Caesarean section" is redundant. Proponents of this view consider the traditional derivation to be a false etymology, though the supposed link with Julius Caesar has clearly influenced the spelling. (A corollary suggesting that Julius Caesar himself derived his name from the operation is refuted by the fact that the cognomen "Caesar" had been used in the Julii family for centuries before his birth,[7] and the Historia Augusta cites three possible sources for the name Caesar, none of which have to do with Caesarean sections or the root word caedere.)

    And Lexi, I have no idea! ;)

    Ha--that would annoy the crap out of me.  Then again, pretty much everything on earth except my DH and the bump annoy me lately.  :)

    BTW, I've read that there is no possible way that the story about Caesar being delivered via C-section could be true, since his mother was alive and kicking after his birth, and the procedure would have killed her at the time.  Of course, I'm too lazy to go do any research to back this up, so who knows?
