An unnamed woman is fuming after discovering the baby name she thought her husband came up with was actually an idea from a previous relationship.
You might not realize it until you need to do it, but deciding what to call your children will be some of the most important decisions you ever make. We wish we could explain that to every single person thinking of having kids because let's be honest, there are some children with very unfortunate names out there right now. Make sure you give it plenty of thought and remember, your child will have to live with that name.
Inspiration for a baby name can come from almost anywhere. You might have had a name picked out and set aside for years. Others will be lying there with days to go until the new arrival and the right name for their new son or daughter will suddenly hit them. While any source of inspiration might seem okay on the surface, there are definitely some you should avoid.
For instance, if you and your ex had a name picked out should you ever have a baby together, you shouldn't need to be told that the name is off the table in any future relationships. Apparently, the unnamed subject of this story didn't get that memo. His wife took to Reddit recently to reveal that a name she thought he came up with, and she has subsequently fallen in love with, was actually a name her husband and his ex had picked out if they ever had a daughter.
Although the post has since been removed, you can check some of it out above courtesy of CafeMom. The woman reveals how her husband has a history of lying so when she thought something was off, she decided to go through his phone. While she thankfully didn't discover any signs of him being unfaithful, she did scroll back far enough to see that it was his ex that came up with the name Addie May for a little girl, the very name her husband suggested and she fell in love with.
As with anything and everything in this day and age, the internet is split. Many question why she is still with someone who she knows to be a compulsive liar. Others have asked why she felt the need to continue scrolling on his phone after she saw that there was nothing to see, and also that she shouldn't be looking through his phone in the first place. On the bright side, at least she discovered this now and not after they had a daughter together who they had already named Addie May.
