TV anchor parents spoof newborn baby in news segment
Naming your baby is a deeply personal and special choice, but one woman found that going to the internet for people’s thoughts on it may not be the best idea after someone compared her chosen name to slime.
The woman split opinion after posting in the Reddit community r/namenerds, explaining that she was expecting a baby girl at Christmas and wanted to name her Gloriana.
She explained: “It’s pronounced the way you’d say Ariana. I think Glory is a cute nickname and she can still go by Anna/Ahna later on if she hates it.
“I’ve loved this name before I ever got pregnant. My MiL and husband love it but my FiL and relatives kind of hate it. I keep being told it’s my baby and I can name her whatever and not to worry about other people’s opinions. But that’s not entirely true.
“This is my daughter’s name. It is important and it’s something she has to carry for her entire life. I don’t want her to be stuck with a stupid name.”
The anonymous mother-to-be went on to ask the community, “exactly how terrible is this name? Would it be a mistake to give it to my daughter?”.
