Naming a child will never be an easy task.

There are literally thousands of names to choose from...
via: GettyAnd they all carry their own unique meanings and backgrounds.
It can be difficult to determine which name is suitable for a newborn...

Celebrities tend to lead this trend of bizarre name choices...

The woman, who has a 5-year-old daughter named Collette, has hit out at her husband's parents...
via: GettyBecause, apparently, they have treated their own granddaughter quite unkindly.
The grandparents had come up with a rather unusual nickname for the little girl...
via: GettyAnd, when the 5-year-old had questioned the bizarre nickname, her grandmother completely flew off the handle.
The woman received an angry phone call from her inlaws regarding her daughter's question.
via: GettyAccording to The Mirror, the mom said, "She tells me that it was really rude for her to say she didn't like her nickname and that I shouldn't have told her to say that."
But then, it got worse.
via: Getty"She then said I was raising her to be bratty. She also said that Colette couldn't come over until she apologized and said that she likes being called [by the nickname]."
But this mom wasn't having any of it.
via: GettyShe said: "That last part p****d me off. I told her 'what the f***? You're banning a 5-year-old from your house for not liking a stupid nickname?' Then I hung up on her."
