Choosing a baby name is hard for some people. Maybe they have a few ideas in mind but aren’t sure which to go with, or maybe they just can’t seem to find anything that they like at all. For other people, naming a baby is a snap. They’ve had the name picked out forever, or they managed to come up with what they think is the perfect one.
One woman chose to name her baby a somewhat (okay, very) strange first name and got a lot of flak about it from her friends. So much, actually, that she ended up canceling her baby shower because of it.
In a Facebook post, the woman complained that her friends and family were “sh*tting” on her “unborn child” over the name she’d given her baby, which was Squire Sebastian Senator (no, that’s not his whole name, that’s just his first name, and the mother forbade any nicknames).
Yeah, let’s see how that works out for her in a few years when she’s chasing lil’ Squire Sebastian Senator around the house.
So, no one is making fun of her baby, really, they’re making fun of her for the baby name she chose. I mean, just to be clear on that.
Either way, this lady was not having it, and chose to cancel the baby shower and organize another one, a “smaller, more inclusive party,” in her words. Shrug.
A lot of people on Reddit thought that the name was dumb and that the woman deserved to get mocked a bit.
No one’s talking shit about your unborn baby. They’re talking shit about your poor naming choices.
This could be the first ever child to run away from home before he’s born.
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.
Oh poor woman…it isn’t your child being judged…It’s you.
It didn’t sound all that crazy until the paragraph about how “Squire Sebastian Senator” is just his first name and demanding that people use it in full when calling him. What a lunatic…
I wish we could follow this story to see if she actually names him that. She does say the baby’s name will be a revolution, so I guess we’ll know she went through with it when we start seeing keychains and mugs with the name Squire Sebastian Senator on them. I wouldn’t hold my breath, though.
