An angry mum-to-be has cancelled her baby shower after she found out her family were mocking her baby son’s new name behind her back.

The pregnant woman revealed she planned to call her child Squire Sebastian Senator, and that the name is always to be said in full – no nicknames allowed.

Taking to Facebook, she addressed the group she’d made for her baby shower and informed them of her decision to cancel.

“It brings me pain to have to tell you this, but I am cancelling the event,” she wrote. “Why? Because ya’ll have been talking **** about my unborn baby. AN UNBORN CHILD. How can you judge an unborn child?? What is wrong with you??”

The woman went on to say that she was not crazy, mentally unstable or drunk when she named her child, and that no-one could change her mind about his name because “this is the name I was meant to give him.”

Explaining her choice, she also revealed that she comes from a “long lasting family of both squires and senators… The name conveys power. It conveys wealth. It conveys success.

“My baby’s name WILL be a revolution. It will push people to question everything. Why name your baby boring and over-used names like Joshua, Brian, Sam, Nick, Bella Marina, etc… when you can name it something special.”

The Facebook post was shared on Reddit, where it has racked up over 3500 comments from users.
