A New Zealand baby was cured of a rare brain disease simply because her name was changed from Kendyl Louise to Mylee Jay, according to her parents. However, the medical specialists involved are not too sure that the renaming had any effect.
Mylee began to have seizures only days after she was born and her desperate parents called a Name Analyst to see if they had chosen a name which was somehow unlucky.
He quickly found the combination of the name Kendyl and her birth date had a corrosive effect, because of “distractions between her name and her bodily functions”, he said.
A few weeks after the name change Mylee’s seizures stopped and her brain patterns returned to normal.
However, the paediatric neurologist who treated Mylee, said there was no possible link between her name change and improved condition.
