Mum asks whether to tell pal her ‘ridiculous’ baby name will cause ‘teasing’

A mum took to the internet last week to ask whether she should tell her pal that her new baby’s name is “ridiculous”.

Writing on Mumsnet, she explained that her mate had recently delivered a son and told them the newborn's moniker in a WhatsApp group.

She added: "It’s very unusual. Personally, I don’t like it. To be honest, I more than don’t like it and think it’s a ridiculous thing to call a child.

"We all congratulated her and said he’s gorgeous (which he is!) etc but none of us have passed comment on the name.

"She’s messaged me separately asking if the name is a bit much.

“AIBU (am I being unreasonable) to tell her the truth, gently?"

The mum later told posters the name, and added: “The name is Navy-Lee.

“Very common surname – think Smith or Jones."

And, the name divided mums on the website.

One said: "I’d just respond equivocally and keep well out of it."

“I think generally if she’s announced it then there has been a decision between her and her partner that needs to be respected,” added another.

While a third said: “Just tell her you love the name.”

Some adored the name, too.

A fan noted: "It’s a fine name.

“Kind of like a brooding literary minded underwear model."

However, others really disliked the moniker.

One such hater said: "What a terrible name.

“If she’s asked you your opinion I’d tell her the truth."

While another commented: "She asked, so I think you can tell her in a nice way that it's f***ing awful."

And a third sad that the child would be “teased all of its life.”
