Naming a baby is one of the exciting things for a woman and the baby shower is something they cherish and want it to be the best.
However, one woman was in news after she announced that she was cancelling her upcoming baby shower because her friends have been ‘talking sh*t’ about her baby. She even shared the reason behind her son’s unique name in Facebook.
She wrote: “Her name is Squire Sebastian Senator. That is that. You cannot force me to change his name. This is that name I was meant to give him. No, that is not his full name.
“Squire Sebastian Senator’ is only his first name. this is how it will be. He will not be allowed to have a nickname, he is to be called by his full and complete first name.”
She continued: “We come from a long lasting family of both squires and senators. If you look back in our family tree, the survival of this clan is literally rooted in squiredom. We are all related to senators too. This name conveys power. It conveys wealth. It conveys success.”
Apart from defending her decision, she also lashed out at some of the ‘boring’ names out there. She explained: “My baby’s name WILL be a revolution. It will push people to question everything. Why name your baby boring and over-used names like Joshua, Brian, Sam, Nick, Mark, Bella, Marina, etc… when you can name it something special.”
As expected, social media users wasted no time to have their say on the issue. One commented: “No one’s talking sh*t about your unborn baby. They’re talking sh*t about poor naming choices.”
Another said: “I’ll say the same thing I tell any friend who gets pregnant: before you settle on a name, imagine growing up with it yourself.”
Meanwhile, someone countered: “Why name your child something boring? Because I’d like to not damn my unborn kid to school bullying and his job applications going right into the trash.”
So, what’s your take on the whole thing?
