A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

Many may not know that the series original title was to have been "Surgeons." The current title was taken from a classic human anatomy textbook, edited in 1858, and a must have for every medical student.

The series was going to be set Boston, Philadelphia, or New York City; but Rhimes eventually settled for Seattle, Washington as the home of her fictional Hospital.

Alex Karev didn't exist in Rhimes' original script. He was added in after the pilot episode was shot, but 15 season's later he is still a central character in "Grey's Anatomy."

Rhime's main character, Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, is still going strong, even after all the losses in her life, and keeps inspiring fans with her resilience and compassion.
