But becoming a parent means one huge decision – a baby name!

It's a big responsibility.

And one any parent wants to get right.

Whether to go for something traditional ...

Or think outside the box…

Choosing a name people don't approve of can cause huge issues.

As one woman shared on Reddit this week…

Of course, there's a whole host of crazy names out there...

And celebrities especially like to think outside of the box when it comes to their children.

Take Coco, for example.

Friends star Courteney Cox's baby sounds delicious!


Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin also went for a foody option.

Blue Ivy

You can't expect Beyonce to do things by halves, right?


Busy Phillips took her inspiration from the animal kingdom instead.

Nicole Richie went for the least glamorous of birds.


Hey, at least David Duchovny went for something accurate.


Michael Jackson's very offbeat choice here.

Well, it's triggered quite the reaction online.

The expectant mom, who has remained anonymous, is expecting twins in the Spring...

And has already decided on their names.

After keeping the names a secret for so long, she decided to ask her close friend what she thought of them...

But when she didn't get the response she wanted, she accused her friend of "ruining" her special moment. The woman's friend said: "My friend wanted to keep the baby names a secret as everyone knows the sex of the babies and she’s having a scheduled C-section so she wanted some element of surprise. She’s also a massive Harry Potter fan and had hinted about there possibly being a link so I expected a Harry Potter name in there somewhere."

Well, when she revealed the names, her friend just couldn't hide her reaction...

And ultimately upset her. "Thanks for that, I can tell you hate them. Thanks so much for ruining this moment for me!" the expectant mom allegedly said before hanging up the phone. The woman says she feels awful for upsetting her friend.

But what are the names?!

Well, the woman has chosen Albus Tony and Severus Callum. What do you think? Are they a nice tribute to the Harry Potter franchise? Or will her children be subject to vicious bullying as a result?
