I’ve narrowed my baby names down to a few picks – I love them all but ditched ‘Apricot’ because people think I’m joking

CHOOSING a name for your future child can be a lot of pressure.

Since they’re more than likely to live with the name for the rest of their life, it’s important to get it right.

This expecting mum recently revealed her top picks for her daughter, people couldn’t believe she was actually serious.

The mum previously shared her top three names, which included Apricot, Cherry and Ember.

The updated list wasn’t much better, and fellow Mumsnet users couldn’t believe she was considering even more strange name choices.

Whichever name the mum picked would have to go with the middle name Jean, one of the new names on the mum’s list was Moon.

The lunar themed name spiked the interest of the other users, but for all the wrong reasons.

“You’re joking right? Your poor child will be bullied endlessly,” One user commented.

The expecting mum also included some Korean names in her list, since her baby would be one quarter Korean.

Unfortunately, some of the names just didn’t translate very well.

Bae and Minji were the worst offenders.

“You cannot possibly call a baby Minji obvious reasons, also Bae which is slang for your boyfriend/girlfriend,” one concerned reader wrote.

Another said: “I beg of you do not name your baby Minji Moon, they’ll hate you forever.”

The other options the mum gave weren’t much better, Sailor, Sage and Bronte also featured on the list.

But the other parents weren’t fans of them either: “I like sage but you can’t call her sage Jean ,as it sounds like sage green, like a Dulux colour wheel.”

Another said: “Sailor is an occupation not to a name. Would you name your child plumber or builder? No, you would not.”

Unless the Mumsnet user was hoping her daughter would be a famous novelist, everyone agreed Bronte was a terrible choice too.

“It’s not just about bullying and it’s sad that’s something that needs to be considered but it can also affect one’s self esteem.

“I am not sure how old you are but this isn’t just an opportunity to be edgy, it sounds harsh but I am looking out for your child,” One shared.
