Let me tell you how awesome (the naming of) this test is. First of all it is named for arguably one of the coolest women ever, Virginia Apgar (more about her later). But on top of that, the test is ALSO an acronym! Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, Respiration. Come on, that is cool. It's like she was boooorn to invent this test. So even though you all know I hate eponyms (except that now that there's a whole movement to get rid of them, I suppose I'm starting to become a little nostalgic), this one is pretty bad-ass as far as eponyms go.
