CHOOSING a baby name can be tough – and it must be painful if family or friends don’t like your final choice of moniker.
One mum-of-four revealed she gave her son a “strong, manly name” but relatives laughed in her face when she made the announcement.
Taking to Quora, Tori replied to a question of whether it is rude to tell someone you don’t like their newborn’s name.
She wrote: “Yes. It is beyond rude.
“12 years later I still haven’t really forgiven my brother in law for his remarks after my son was born.
“My first baby and I was proud to name him after my great uncle Stanley.
“To me, the name is strong, manly, and the name of a man my mum called ‘the ultimate gentleman’.”
Tori said she visited her in law’s house when baby Stanley was two months old, and her brother-in-law decided to make the rude comments.
He asked her: “Why would you name him that?!? That is the ultimate dork name!
“Like the pimple-faced nerd with the thick glasses that gets put in the trash can!”
Tori hit back on the forum and said that her son wasn’t named like a “dork” but “like the creator of Spider-Man” and “like my great uncle.”
She added: “I’m happy to report that 12 year old Stanley has the nickname of ‘Manly Stanley’ by his schoolmates and loves his name.
