Parents Couldn’t Agree on a Baby Name, so They Each Gave Their Daughter a Different Name.

When it comes to choosing a name for your child, finding something that both you and your partner like might be tough.

Many couples compromise on this, which can lead to one parent regretting their baby’s name.

One mother and father felt they’d found a creative strategy to avoid this, but the man’s new fiancée disagrees, calling their idea “crazy.”

In a post on Reddit’s Am I The A**hole forum, the anonymous lady said that her soon-to-be husband and his ex-girlfriend use separate names for their daughter since they couldn’t agree on one.

“My fiancé has a daughter from a prior relationship,” the fiancée wrote on the social media platform. It was a tense relationship, and by the time his ex became pregnant, they were on the verge of breaking up.

“She named the child without telling my fiancé, naming her after her grandmother and mother and using her surname.” My fiancé was enraged, and he insisted that their child take his surname and be called after his grandmother, a name he adored.

“These aren’t the names, but consider the similarities and differences between Sarah Katherine Jones and Samantha Elizabeth Smith. He won the first battle in the sense that she will eventually take his surname, but not the second.

The woman goes on to add that the fight for custody of the child was lengthy, and that her partner didn’t get to visit his daughter until she was a year old.

Her parents have shared their time with her 50/50 now that she is approaching three years old.

To avoid having to go back to court to resolve their differences, they decided that the little girl would have one name at her mother’s house and another at her father’s.

“I think it’s crazy,” the fiancée continues, “but they claim it’s not fair that her father had no influence in her child’s name and that it’s no different than people who have a street name and a government name.”

“They’ve already begun, with her grandparents, aunts/uncles, and father introducing the name Sam.”

“I don’t want to be a part of it. I don’t think it’ll work because this baby is already three years old, it’ll make me look like the toxic stepmother sooner rather than later, and it’s just silly to have a child with two different names. She is one person.”

She went on to ask if it was wrong for her to continue to call to the little girl by the name her mother had given her.

The Reddit post received over 700 responses, with many people agreeing with the fiancée that it would be too confusing for the daughter.

One person stated: “A man who sees a child or a small person as a trophy and a pawn. He doesn’t seem to mind that this will be extremely confusing for the child. He simply wants to do things his way. He’s already a lousy father.”

“The individual is utterly unreasonable, extremely petty, and he displays a worrisome lack of self-awareness when it comes to fights and disagreements,” one person commented.

A third has been added: “The fiancé is, indeed, pitiful. He already had his way by giving the child his surname, but this little girl already has a name. How can he think he can confuse her by renaming her.”
