Moms confess their biggest baby name regrets

Choosing a name for your newborn is an important decision that most parents take very seriously.

We had a hard time naming my second son Jaxson, because we already “knocked him out of the park” with our first son’s name, Cashton Duke. It took us so long to name our 2nd baby boy that they wouldn’t let us out of the hospital because he didn’t have a name 2 days after he was born.

Many moms and dads make lists, check books, websites, and family histories for name inspiration, but sometimes they always end up getting it wrong and having “baby name regrets” down the road. And now some moms on TikTok are entertaining us with their sincere regrets about the names they gave their children.

According New York Post, it all started with comedian Gabby Lamby who posted a video ask, “Okay, serious question for parents: Have you ever regretted the name you gave your child?” She says that when she was growing up, she kept a list of potential baby names for a child she might have someday in the future. “Thank God I didn’t have kids when I was 16, 18, 22, 25, because the names I was writing down were awful,” she says. “For example, I wanted to name my potential child Sublime, after the band.” And she adds that she would have regretted this choice.

Gabby then asks the parents to share their regrets about their baby’s name, and the moms joined in to confess theirs:

“I accidentally named my son Bill Clinton,” one mom shares. “It’s my husband’s fault. He was very adamant that we call him William, which is a surname for him. And we did his middle name Clinton. Bill is short for William. So Bill Clinton.

“I wanted an outdoor boy name. We went with Aspen, because it’s a cool name,” says another mum. “It’s a cool name, but not for him. My son gets car sick at the Chick-fil-A drive-thru. He likes air conditioning and sitting down. So when he was 18 months old, they changed him to Luke.

“I had my daughter at 21”, begins a mother. “I named my daughter Khloe, and I still love that name. But here’s where it gets a little weird. In a lame attempt to be quirky and quirky, I ended up giving her two E’s. And I decided she needed an apostrophe.

“My daughter’s initials are ASS,” shares another mom.

“I have two kids, one is MLK (Martin Luther King) and the other is JFK (John F Kennedy). Oops,” another reveals.
