Well, we're just thankful that the show's creator Shonda Rhimes didn't go with that in the end. While some of the series' competitors like ER and Scrubs have catchy one-word titles, we can't imagine the show's title not being centered around the main character, Dr. Meredith Grey (portrayed by Ellen Pompeo).
The original cast of Grey's Anatomy.
In a previous interview, ABC Chief Channing Dungey revealed the hit series may never end!
"Honestly, I think that the show is going to continue as long as [Shonda] and the gang have a creative passion for telling those stories. At the moment, it feels like we’re full steam ahead," she said.
"What Shonda and the team at Grey’s have really been able to do over time is continue to bring in new characters that give the series additional life and energy while remaining true to the core cast of characters," Dungey continued. "When I’ve been looking at the fan feedback and reaction from this season, people are more interested than ever in the relationship between Meredith and Alex [Justin Chambers], and these are two characters that have been around since Season 1. But we’re now experiencing them in a totally different way than we have before. That’s just what the writers do so well; they continually peel back new layers of these characters that we get to expand and explore." So cool!
