Mums reveal the baby names they were forced to scrap… and some are hilarious
MUMS have revealed the baby names they were forced to axe – and some of them are hilarious.
Many thought they have picked out the perfect moniker for their little one, until someone else pointed out a glaring problem.
Taking to the parenting website Kidspot, mums have shared the names that didn’t quite make the cut.
Haley Potter commented: “Was always going to call my boy Harrison … couldn’t bring myself to do it with the last name of Potter.”
While Lauren Baker said: “I loved the name Ryder but my kids’ last name is Nay, their dad’s nickname is Pony and their uncle’s nickname is Horse.
“I just thought that Ryder Nay was a name that could too easily become Horse Rider or Pony Rider … we went with Flynn and I love the name.”
Meanwhile, Lisa Peachy joked: “I loved the name Grace but we already had a son named Will and we didn’t want Will & Grace!”
Other youngsters were nearly accidentally named after pop culture icons.
Kylie Walker joked: “I really wanted to call my daughter Skye but husband said no way!”
While Michelle Aguis said: “[We liked] Ronald, but my partner’s last name’s Macdonald and there was no way that was going to happen.”
And, a Mrs Martin joked: “We liked Aston.”
One mum admitted calling her son Jack could have led to a lifetime of dog jokes: “I always wanted to have a son and name him Jack.
