Picking a name for your baby is not an easy task as there are many things that parents have to consider.
Some parents name their children after other family members while others choose unique names with significant meanings.
But one father-to-be has shared how easy it was for he and his wife until he discovered the meaning behind the ‘perfect names.’
The dad-to-be said that he and his wife Kaylie are ‘over the moon’ to be having twins. They have spent lots of time preparing the nursery and getting ready for their babies.
“Kaylie suggested the names Bella and Sara, and even though they’re pretty common ones I do like them.”
After a short discussion, they have agreed on the ‘perfect names.’
But when Kaylie’s friend visited days later, she told them about the meaning behind the names for their children and the husband was not happy about it.
The father said that Kaylie’s friend ‘burst out laughing’ after hearing the names, leaving his wife looking ‘embarrassed.’
When he asked why, the friend explained that the pregnant woman had taken her inspiration from the unicorn card game the two had played when they were still kids, adding one of the unicorns was called BellaSara.
“[I]told my wife under no circumstances were we naming the girls that anymore because it’s beyond cheesy and quite honestly ridiculous at this point,” he continued.
But his wife insisted that no one knew about the game so it would be silly to give the names up because of it.
People on Reddit agreed with the mother, with one person writing: “Unless you played the game, knew someone that did or had a child that did, it wouldn’t be an automatic connection.”
Another wrote: “Bella and Sara are perfectly normal names, no one would even guess that they’re from a card game.”
