Considering that it’s a lifelong commitment, picking out a name for your child is no easy task. Some budding parents may have ideas that immediately spring to mind, and when this is the case, it’s hard to imagine calling your little one anything else.

Surprisingly, some families aren’t always on the same page and may disagree over a parent’s decision – whether it’s justified or not. One woman fell victim to this after her idea of children’s names caused a disagreement. The woman wants to name future siblings after a married couple, and it hasn’t gone down well with the family.

She captioned the post: “Is it weird to name siblings after a married couple?

Whilst admitting that she doesn’t have kids yet, she still enjoys picking out names for when the time comes.

“I have an aunt and uncle who I love very dearly and they are a big part of my life, so I was considering naming a girl after my aunt and a boy after my uncle.

“I told my brother, however, and he thought it was really weird to name siblings after a married couple.

“What are y’all’s thoughts?” She asked.

The woman turned to the internet for advice, questioning whether the idea was strange since the family member wasn’t keen.

One user online admitted: “I think it would be weird if it was a famous couple (like don’t name your children Romeo and Juliet lol).

“But this is just an honour family name and most people meeting them won’t know – so not weird.”

“Don’t people name their kids after their parents (the kids’ grandparents) pretty often?” A different user asked.

A third parent agreed: “My daughter’s middle name is a variant of mine, and my son’s middle name is going to be a variant of my husband’s. Again, not a problem.”

Another user set the record straight: “Molly and Arthur: not weird. Jaime and Cersei: super weird. Your beloved family members: not weird.”
