Why do people decide to name their kids the weirdest of things? No one does it better than celebrities, except for maybe this one couple who decided on one "controversial" name.

Now, we know celebrities love to name their kids weird things, but one couple might have taken things a little too far with this "controversial option."

A father-to-be decided he wasn't going to support his wife when she decided to bring up the name "Karen."

He took to Reddit to ask if he was wrong for not doing so, writing this: "My wife and I recently found out we’re having a daughter. We hadn’t really talked about names before but we both agreed that each of us will retain veto power. When we did start discussing names, both of us wanted to name her after our late mothers."

"Her mom’s name was Karen and my mom’s name wasn’t a meme."

He continued: "I told her the baby can take my mom’s name as her first name and her mom’s name as a middle name, or have an entirely different name, but I can’t okay “Karen" as a first name in any case."

He also added this:

"She got offended because she just wants to honor her mother and thinks I have a problem with that. I just don’t want to set our daughter up to be bullied throughout her life. I told her I’d be fine with whatever first name she picks as long as it doesn’t lead to the baby being picked on later in life, but she’s pretty insistent on Karen."

But a lot of people agreed with the father-to-be.

Let's just hope they go with a different option.

For the baby's sake.
