If you’re expecting and want to give your child a truly individual name, you’re bound to ruffle some feathers.
From traditional names like Catherine and William to modern names such as Apple and Seven, there are a lot of options out there.
And of course, you’re always going to hear from those who have to tell you that they don’t agree with your choice.
Whether it’s a relative, friend or overconfident member of the public, someone is bound to make it clear that they don’t approve of your choice.
One woman grappling with her family’s reluctance for her to not have any children at all has spun up a brilliant response to shut them down.
She explains that she makes up the worst baby names she can come up with to try and stop her relatives pestering her about future babies.
And it appears to work very well – with lots of people agreeing that her choices of names will put people off for life.

“Maybe, but I’m worried little Robby Bob might get scratched”
“It’s all in good humor obviously, though my family cringes at each new name I come up with.”
People were left in stitches after the woman shared some of the examples.
One person joked: “Albus Severus Mundungus Crookshanks, you were named after four of the oddest named Harry Potter characters I could think of.”
Another suggested: “Tell them you are still trying to figure out how to pronounce a random symbol that you want for the name.
“Seriously I’ll never forget in the news this kids name was Urhines Kendall Icy Eight Special K.”
A third revealed: “A friend of mine worked with a fertility gynecologist.
“They always tell the story of an expecting mom who was really high on pain meds who was convinced that “Cervix” was a beautiful name for her baby boy.
“Fortunately for the kid, the nurse talked her out of it …”
