What have you called your stoma?
Many people give their stoma a name, knowingly or unconsciously. For one person they think about the name, for another the name presents itself. Sometimes giving something a name can make it easier. Closer to yourself, more personal. Have you seen the film “Cast away” with Tom Hanks? He had to survive on an uninhabited island. He found a volley ball, which he called “Wilson”. He talked to Wilson and gave him a face. Being able to talk to something, even if it doesn’t talk back, can be a big relief. Have you given your stoma a name and do you want to share it with us?
Then fill in the form beneath!
"Mine is named "Gloria the Wonder Stoma." Right after my surgery I heard a woman outside my room answer the phone, "Hello, this is Gloria," and suddenly my stoma had a name. "Wonder Stoma" because even stomas need a self-esteem boost now and then."
"Emily is her name. Not sure why just happened to be in pain and I just started to say
"work with me Emily" and that's how she got her name."
"Piglet, because he loves hanging out with

yes, but she will be known as Roma the stoma :-)"
"My bag is called Poppy, cos it does a lot of
"I have a temporary stoma after having my
cancer removed who I named "Colin" so it only seemed
fair to name my stoma. My husband called it "Winnie"
because when he first met my stoma bag, all he could
think of was "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day"
so "Winnie" it is."
"I named my stoma Betty Poop, because, it's what
she does... all the time :)"
"I named my stoma Francois. It just came to mind
while I was in the hospital recovering from the
removal of my rectum and creation of the temporary
ileostomy. A couple of my girlfriends came to visit
and while they were there, as we were laughing,
either the nurse or the surgeon came, too, and the
name Francois (with perfect French accent) just
popped out of my mouth."
I love her and she is my best little friend.
I thank The Lord God for
Stomie is very significant to me.
The S in her name stands for Special"

"A friend has called his stoma Napolean (as in
Napolean Bonafart) which amused me. My own stoma
named himself a few days after he was fitted, when
he let out some filtered gas which sounded just as
though he had said Rufus, so that is his name. He
must be a bloke because he is so practical, and not
a bit romantic Ha Ha."
"My ileostomy is called Bubs, because he is just like a little baby! He needs his nappy changed, he wakes me up in the middle of the night, he cries all the time, and I always have to carry my 'baby' supplies with me! And just like a baby, I love Bubs for who he is and what he has done for me!"
"I have had my stomas nearly 30 years and growing up. I didnt have a name for them until 6 years ago when I met my lovely husband. He named them. Colostomy is Sammy (the stinker) and my urostomy is Sally. He can ask how I am in a crowded room and no one knows!"

Because I am still alive.
He saved my life."
"I call my stoma Nino, just because it is made up of the letters from a continent urostomy. I can then talk away easily about it as if it is my friend. And: also a reason to give your stoma a name: “I am going to listen to my own tinkling. You can then say “I am going to listen to his tinkling! ;)
... A 15 year old girl

"I called the stoma Flipper because straight away after the operation I heard the sounds you hear from a dolphin. It was the first thing that sprang to mind."
"My stoma bag will soon be called Chanel no 5. Why? Because many people associate the word stoma with a horrid smell. Naturally that is total rubbish therefore a wonderful fragrance name. Greetings from a soon to be ostomist from Betuwe. "
"9 times out of 10 I call her Little Bag! This is because I find “stoma” a horrid word. If my friend is with me I normally say; “ah my little bag, how is my little marsupial?” I am glad that he is ok with it! But I shall always carry my little bag!"
"I don’t have one at the moment, but perhaps I will get one. To choose a name, we played with the word “urine stoma”, and made as many names from that that we could (it has to be feminine as I am a girl). We liked “Mira” best of all. Other names we had were: (perhaps a tip for other people!) Rinus, Omar, Rein, Sem, Tom/Tim, Tina, Timo, Marie, Mien, and Rens.

"I had a colostomy and my friend called him or her (never sure which it was) “stinky”. Well, not difficult to guess why..."

He said: “it looks like a chupa chup lolly!”. Since then it is my own chupa chop, with a completely new taste, shall we say!" :)
"I have had my temporary ileostomy now for about 3 weeks. I think it looks like a sea anemone: the way it moves and pulses out and in again. But I couldn’t think of the name of a sea anemone. Therefore I call her Rosebud when I am happy with her, and Butthead when she is annoying."
"My son called my stoma “Angus”. After the opening that I no longer have! (hint: take away the G)"
"Mine is called Plop gnome. My stoma is so small and sometimes pulls inside so that you have to look for him with a magnifying glass."
"My stoma is called “Henry”. I have had my ileostomy for around 10 years now. I knew he would be with me 24/7, so I wanted to give him a name. It is a part of my life, plus when I have to email my assistant or put on a new base plate, they know exactly what I mean: it makes my life easier. I therefore advise everyone to give their stoma a name."
"I call her “Little trumpet” because she sometimes trumpets terribly. Not always good of course...but in the main she does it (up until now) LUCKILY not at inconvenient times. But if that happens I know, I think, how to deal with it....."
"I called my stoma Ankh, after the Egyptian symbol for life. Because my stoma means precisely this for me: the result (symbol) of a life saving operation to remove my UC affected intestines."

"Mine only has a name when it begins to bubble during the cleaning. You do not want to know what I call it then, hahahaha."
"My ileostomy is called Snout, because it looks like a nose. Squirt is my urostomy’s name, because he always squirts when I want to change my bag. I call them SS for short."
"My stoma is called Vesuvius, because it erupts heavily at the most unexpected times!"
"My stoma is called Little Rose. If Rose grumbles then I say: stop that now Rose! I know that you will be with me until death."

"I am a member of a forum and we had a competition there to chose the name of my stoma. Eventually it became Winnie the Pooh."
"I call mine Sjaak. Sometimes I call him a nosy parker when he begins to interject whilst I am having a conversation."
"I got my stoma when I was 17 and called him “Phil the bag”. On my 29th I got married to, yes indeed, a Phil. How coincidental. They are both unpredictable and often make me laugh."
"I have a new addition to my life (barely 3 months old) and I have called him the “little redheaded guy”. I know for certain that he is a guy, because a woman would never be so unpredictable. "
"My stoma is called Humpie Dumpie because he is so small and nine times out of ten, leads his own life."
"I have had my stoma for 11 years now, and call him Herbie. I don’t actually know why I called him that, but it helped me to accept the stoma as a friend and not an enemy. I sometimes have interesting conversations with Herbie when he is active, even my husband talks to him now and again."
"I have had my stoma for 22 years, I got it when I was 9. I called it Bert, after Bert and Ernie, which I loved at the time."
"I called my stoma “cul de sac”. I am French so I shall explain it: cul means arse and sac means bag. It took me 4 years to think of an appropriate name!"
"I have called my 6 month old stoma “Meredith”. It grew from the french “merde”, also know as sh*t . I found life easier to make her more personal, even though I sometimes wish she was quiet. "
"When I lay in the hospital and had just got my stoma, someone told me that I should give my stoma a name. First I thought it a strange idea but eventually decided to do it. So I sat looking at my stoma for a few seconds till the perfect name came to me: ”Mick”. Named for Mick Jagger. Because it seemed to me that I had Mick’s lips sticking to my belly. "
"I called it Willy Wonka’s bubble machine. I am a teacher and after my operation I was in doubt how much I should tell my class. At that time I had a lot of problems with gas so I explained to the class that I had had an operation and sometimes now sound like “Willy Wonka’s bubble machine”. The result is that I could no longer lose the name. It is not a “human” name, but it is appropriate for me."
"I call mine Willy because sometimes he is nearly as long as my friends. Try and think about it: a woman with a bag and a long (whahaha)."
