One mom was recently warned that her son will face bullying and humiliation over the name she and her husband picked, and it's actually such a sad but uncanny choice.
Read on to find out why his name would earn him a "lifetime of ridicule."
Naming your child will never be an easy task.
via: GettyGiving a tiny human a name that they will identify by for the rest of their lives is always going to bring with it a little bit of pressure.
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...
via: GettyBecause who knows which name will eventually suit them best?
And, to add to this pressure...
via: GettyYou have to come up with a name that your child will be happy and content with throughout their life.
So that's why most parents play it safe by settling with a name that would be considered as "normal" by most.
via: GettySarah, Rebecca, Jack, James... You can't really go wrong with these kinds of names, can you? Or can you?
Of course, there will always be the parents who pick rather unusual names for their children.
via: GettyWe all know a child with a slightly bizarre name.
Celebrities tend to lead this trend of bizarre name choices...
via: GettyRemember when Gweneth Paltrow called her daughter Apple? Or all the times Kim Kardashian named her 4 children North, Saint, Chicago, Psalm?
And who can forget?
Well, for the children of the rich and famous, a strange name isn't too big of a deal...
via: GettyBut, for us regular folk, an unusual name can be quite detrimental.
Some people live in complete turmoil over the names their parents chose for them...
via: GettyAnd, in some extreme cases, people have been known to legally change their birth name to something a little more appropriate.
Well, this one couple decided on a last-minute change with their son.
via: Getty ImagesBut they didn't think about the future consequences of their choice.
And it wasn't even a strange choice until you combined it with the couples' last name.
via: Getty ImagesThat's when things became a real issue.
The woman explained how she and her husband had been expecting their first child after 10 years of marriage.
via: Getty ImagesAnd at first, they were banking on Louis, but after she tragically lost her father, the mom decided she would honor him in the best way, by naming her first son after him.
But after sharing the last-minute change on her Facebook, she was forced to re-think her decision.
via: Getty ImagesShe told the Mirror that she was getting an "unending amount of ridicule and shaming."
One user commented this:
via: Getty Images“This kid is going to get made fun of his whole life. He’s never going to hear the end of it, whether it’s friendly jokes or actual bullies. He’s going to have to constantly explain to people that 'yes, that’s my real name, I’m not joking'."
Another said this:
via: Getty Images“You have set him up for a lifetime of teasing, comments, and annoyance. Change his last name. He will resent you if you don’t."
And with that feedback, she and her husband decided it would be best to alter the name.
via: Getty Images“My husband and I love the name, there's no question of keeping it...but I'm at the point where I'm considering asking my husband if he would mind if we change [his] last name to my maiden name... I'm pretty sure he'd agree since he's getting annoyed too."
So, it was decided, his new name would be:

Because his old name, Harry Potter, was just not working out well for very obvious reasons...
via: Getty Images"I decided to not let the book series and movies rule my emotions and decision..." She claimed originally, but it was frustrating having to explain their reasons over and over again.
So hopefully his new name will be more suitable.
