One of the most exciting moments during a pregnancy is picking out a baby name. It can definitely be an exciting time, but it can also lead to a heated debate. Maybe you鈥檝e always dreamed about naming your son Christopher and your partner has a creepy, old uncle of the same name. Childhood dreams are ruined, lives are changed鈥 Okay, maybe it鈥檚 not that dramatic, but the process does require some discussion and a little bit of give and take.

Recently one Redditor left a comment in a baby-related group that said, 鈥渢he names my SO [significant other] has been suggesting for the baby are鈥 really something. Can鈥檛 tell if he鈥檚 joking.鈥 Like most relatable things that pop up on the Internet, it struck a chord with other parents who then decided to chime in with their own story about the topic 鈥 and you guys, some of the names shared are hilarious. On the other hand, we kind of like a few of the more unusual picks, but we鈥檙e pretty open when it comes to creative baby names.


鈥淢y first pregnancy really struck home how very southern my husband is. His (serious) suggestions were: Bo Rusty Cletus (I s**t you not) Lynard I eventually had to set a ground rule that if I could picture a fat old lady leaning out of a rusty, leaning trailer door and screaming the name, it wasn鈥檛 going to be added to the list. Thankfully he ended up finally choosing one we could both live with.鈥 鈥 xxlilstepsxx

鈥淢y husband suggested Nova and Chevelle for a boy鈥.mainly because they are cars. He lost naming privileges.鈥 鈥 Jenxa

鈥淢y grandmother suggested Nathaniel. Which wasn鈥檛 so terrible (except, it鈥檚 terrible鈥) until she added on, 鈥淭hen you could call him Nathan! Like the hot dog!鈥 Granny, just because he has a wiener, it doesn鈥檛 mean we need to name him in honor of it鈥︹ 鈥 thirdjane

鈥淢y husband鈥檚 front runner name for the past 7 months has been Waldo. I feel you.鈥 鈥 Gluestick05

鈥淢y husband is dead-set on our baby girl鈥檚 middle name being Furiosa. Crazier part is I鈥檓 almost considering it, just because it means so much to him. :-/ Eek.鈥 鈥 LadyRainicom
