A mom has some major regret after selecting names for her twins.
That she’s now considering changing them.
“I had doubts originally when I first had them as I had been on Tramdol for days and felt like I may have rushed the decision,” she wrote.
“Don’t get me wrong I love both the names but I feel like a made the wrong decision and I always get awkward reactions when people ask,” she wrote.
“I am due to go and register them soon and am feeling under pressure to make a decision by then.”
“My partner thinks I’m being ridiculous but I’m the one who spends more time with other parents and children and I always dread people’s reaction when they ask their names.”
