And the massive quake that hit China is now giving inspiration to new mothers for naming their babies after the quake. Let's take a look at what they've come up with.
Li Meichun is among those leading the trend of Chinese parents to take inspiration from last week's devastating earthquake to name their newborn babies.
Li was just days away from giving birth when the quake hit Sichuan Province on May 12th.
The first-time mum-to-be was trapped in her mountain hometown until soldiers were able to get through.
She made it to a temporary hospital to give birth but only after the troops helped her make the arduous journey in the only way possible - on foot.
She's given birth to a healthy baby boy - his name is Li Zhen. Quake, in Chinese.
Nurses at makeshift hospitals in the stricken region say names marking the devastating quake are part of a current trend.
[Lu Xiaoling, Nurse]:
"One baby who arrived on May the 12th was called Born During Earthquake. One whose mother gave birth in an ambulance the next day was going to be named Born in a Car. Another was called Born in a Tent."
Some parents are even luckier than others that their stories have happy endings.
Chang Zheng's name means Long March - after the struggle to keep him alive. He caught an infection when he was trapped with his parents at just three days old. He's among those who've lived to tell the tale. Tens of thousands did not.
