A dad has turned to the internet for advice after his wife re-names their baby three times in the year and a half since her birth.
Explaining the situation online at Reddit, the dad says at their girl’s birth they decided on one name which is her legal name, and "everything is roses".
However, not long after, his wife became unhappy with their choice.
"At the three-month mark, my wife says she feels weird about the name because: ‘It’s too common, it doesn’t feel right, it seems like the wrong name,’' he explains
Picking a second name, everyone is happy. That is until their daughter is 18-months old and the mum finds a third name that she thinks is even better than the first two.
The dad decided not to reveal the names for the sake of his family’s privacy.
Those who read his story were quick to reply.
"She’s going to confuse the hell out of her own daughter if she starts calling her by a new name," one Reddit user wrote.
Babies are thought to start identifying with their names from between five and seven months, leading some people to worry for the little girl who could become
frustrated. It’s also confusing for friends and relatives.
Hopefully, the mum makes up her mind soon!
