A mother took to the internet for advice after she was left wondering whether it was too late to change the name of her 10-month-old baby girl.
In a post on Netmums, the woman explained that she and her husband gave their daughter a pretty name but she is no longer sure if they made the right decision.
“Changing baby name after 10 months – what are people’s thoughts on this???” she wrote.
“Every single day I question whether we named our daughter the right name – surely that isn’t normal?!” the mother continued.
“I’m in a total fluster and have not mentioned this to a soul. Not my hubby or friends, because I feel so stupid I’ve let this go on so long!
“The name we chose is very pretty, Sienna, but I can’t help but feel it’s not right. Does anyone else get these feelings? Is it too late to change her name??”
Fellow parents replied to the mother’s post, with many could not decide whether it was already too late to change their baby’s name.
One person commented: “I say go for it ONLY if you have another name you are certain of. If you don’t then it’s likely you’ll want to change it again, by which point it’ll be too late.”
Another said: “You can change your baby’s name on the birth certificate until they are 1 year old. Read the back of your birth certificate, you have 12 months in which you can change name.”
A third added: “Talk to your hubby see how he feels. If you don’t think its right for her change it now before its too late.”
