We all want our children to have unique names. Some parents think about names for months while others choose one spontaneously after the baby is born.
But sometimes, the names we choose are already taken by others. In this case, a pregnant woman wanted to give her unborn child a name that was similar to a dog she barely knew, Tilly. The name that the pregnant lady wanted to give her daughter was Tillie. She just couldn’t contain her jealousy, so instead of giving her daughter a different name or just living with the fact that others have a similar name, she demanded that the dog’s owner change its name.
The dog owner, Jennay couldn’t believe it:
Jannay, Tilly’s owner acted nobly. She shared the story on Facebook :
“She says, ‘we want to name her Tillie but it’s come to my attention you have a dog named Tilly. I’d really appreciate you changing your dog’s name. Obviously, you understand my daughter can’t have the same name as a dog.”
Jennay was shocked by the bizarre request, she barely even knew that woman. The pregnant lady accused her of “potentially ruining her unborn daughter’s life.”
We know that choosing your child a name isn’t an easy thing to do. So you might want to think about names that mean something to you but also try to avoid names that potentially cause humiliation.
People were shocked by the pregnant lady’s request:
