A MUM sort help with her baby name as she picked a unique moniker for her newborn… and people weren’t impressed.
Some suggested it suited a dog better while others thought it was a character from Abba musical Mamma Mia.
The mum asked whether she could use the name Sky or Skylar for a boy and people had strong opinions.
Responding on Mumsnet, one person said: “Technically yes, is it advisable? Absolutely not.”
Another said: “I think people call their dogs of either sex Sky.”
A third said: “You can, but you shouldn’t.”
And another said: “Why not I guess, but I wouldn’t.”
And another person said: “Nopety nope nope nope. Poor kid.”
One suggested an alternative: “I wouldn’t want to call a child/pet Skyler.
“Call a boy Sky? Theoretically, but why would you so that to him. Guy sounds similar and is nice.”
Another person pointed out the Abba connection, saying: “Sky(e) is the name of Sophie’s boyfriend in Mama Mia.
“Isn’t their a female Skye in Paw Patrol?
“I think I wouldn’t use it for a boy for this reason because for little kids this is probably the only place they hear the name. You don’t really hear it for boys.”

But not everyone was so negative with a few thinking it was a good choice for the child.
One person said: “Yes, I know a boy called this. It might be spelt as in the Scottish Island though – Skye.
“It’s a nice name, it’s his name. It’s really not a problem.”
While another simply said: “Don’t see why not.”
