Despite this couple deciding on their daughter's name before she was born, the dad is now refusing to go with what they picked.
Coming up with a name for your baby is usually incredibly difficult. You might have months to come up with something, but there are so many things you have to take into consideration. A name you love might conjure up bad memories for your partner. One of you might think a name is unique whereas the other went to school with ten people who had the same name.
The moment you both find a name that you love, and ultimately the one that is right for your child can be a magical one. It might have been a frustrating journey but it will all be worth it when you discover that one perfect name. Or two perfect names if you're not sure whether you're having a boy or a girl. Or twins!
The last thing you want is for the baby to arrive and you find yourselves back at square one. That's exactly what has happened to one set of new parents. As the mom shared on Mumsnet, she and her partner had decided on Sophia. However, when their daughter arrived, the dad decided that she doesn't look like a Sophia and also that he now thinks the name is too common.
"Now that she's here, he is refusing to call her the name we had picked, Sophia and is saying she looks like an Audrey or an Arden," the mom wrote. Clearly, she is not quite as taken with her partner's new ideas. "My parents are asking the name and everytime I say Sophia, he says we haven't really chosen," she went on to say.
Two weeks had passed when the mom took to Mumsnet. We know naming a child can be difficult, but for your little one to still not have a name two weeks into his or her life seems a little ridiculous. We certainly hope the couple managed to come sort of compromise, whether that meant sticking with Sophia or using the original decision as a middle name instead.
