When choosing a name for your child, there are always going to be things you should check.
Many of us want to make sure that we don’t burden a child with a name that can be twisted into a cruel punchline easily.
It can be upsetting to hear, but occasionally they might have a valid point that you should consider.
That is the unfortunate situation one woman has complained about landing herself in recently.
She took to Reddit’s ‘ Am I The A**hole forum ‘ to check if she was acting unreasonably by refusing to use her niece’s full name.
Her brother definitely think she is one – but now her sister-in-law is also questioning the name.
She explained: “My brother and his girlfriend had a baby girl two months ago.
“I didn’t visit her in the hospital due to the restrictions but I quickly found out that they named her Celexa.
“One google search will tell you that is the name of an antidepressant medication.
“I don’t understand the thought process behind choosing that name but I really cannot stand it and I laugh whenever someone in my family refers to her.
“I decided to just call her Lexa and when my brother’s girlfriend asked me why I never call her Celexa, I told her the truth – that it’s the name of a medication and now apparently I’ve got her upset because she’s worried that people are gonna bully their daughter.
“Nobody in my family seems to be on my side so now i’m wondering if it was a mistake to point it out.”
Thousands of people commented on her post – with many of them divided.
One responded: “If they’re mad because you are straight up refusing to use her name because it makes you uncomfortable then yta.
“It’s her name, get over yourself. If they’re just upset because they didn’t realize that the name was also the name of a medication then nta.
“They may be upset with the situation and concerned about the future well-being of their daughter.”
Another replied: “Truthfully, if my sister named her daughter after a medication, particularly after an antidepressant I would feel really weird calling her that name.
“Lexa is a reasonable nickname for Calexa. It’s not like she is calling her something unrelated like Lucy.”
A third blasted: “I mean, basically you’re the first bully in this kid’s life so congrats on that.
“People sometimes have unusual names, [stop] being so immature and petty that you refuse to refer to a human being by their name, [it] is stupid and mean. Grow up.”
