An expectant mother was forced to cancel her baby shower after her friends mercilessly roasted the name she had chosen for her unborn child.
I have to admit, it’s pretty bizarre…
But becoming a parent means one huge decision – a baby name!
And one any parent wants to get right.
Or think outside the box…
As one woman shared on Facebook this week…
And celebrities especially like to think outside of the box when it comes to their children.
Friends star Courteney Cox’s baby sounds delicious!
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin also went for a foody option.
You can’t expect Beyonce to do things by halves, right?
Busy Phillips took her inspiration from the animal kingdom instead.
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz’s kid is so over Brooklyn …
Mariah Carey clearly wishes stardom on her kids!
Gwen Stefani thinks her baby is out of this world!
Cardi B totally went for it with her baby name!
Mike Myers clearly has a favorite day of the week!
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend also took inspo from outer space!
Kourtney Kardashian went for a regal theme.
We literally can’t choose the weirdest of Kimye’s baby names.
Kylie Jenner’s kid did give us one of the most iconic memes of the year, though.
Kate Winslet clearly wanted a baby to cuddle with.
George Lucas went for a pretty epic-sounding name.
Madonna played into her own offbeat name with her daughter’s.
Toni Braxton paid tribute to everyone’s favorite pants material.
Yep, Usher’s son is also called Usher. Good lord.
Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna’s baby is certainly dreamier than their current relationship status.
Jason Bateman is clearly a big syrup fan.
Erykah Badu was obviously never going to go for a common name.
Was Josh Holloway tired when he came up with this one?
Fergie is a huge ice-skating fan.
Geri Halliwell (aka Ginger Spice) took the floral name theme to the next level.
Is Alicia Keyes a British prog-rock fan?
Dusty? Are you sure, Adam Levine?
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.
Spike Lee went with a more practical name.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s baby name is kind of sadly ironic.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes plumped for one of the lesser-known Disney princesses.
Jessica Simpson clearly thought her kid was a winner.
Sam Worthington went more “out of this world” with his choice.
Jena Malone is clearly a poetry and nature fan.
Holly Madison’s choice is very kitschy – and colorful.
We hate to admit we find Zooey Deschanel’s choice kind of cute.
Really not sure what Jason Lee was going for here.
Miranda Kerr feeling all romantic …
While Alanis Morisette is feeling darker.
Well, it triggered the cancelation of a baby shower and the potential ruin of several friendships.
“I have a really important announcement to make. It brings me pain to have to tell you this but I am canceling the event [the baby shower]. I will text you soon if you’re invited to my smaller, more inclusive party. At least here no one will judge me.”
“Why? Why am I doing this? Because ya’ll have been talking s**t about my unborn baby. AN UNBORN CHILD. How can you judge an unborn child?? What’s wrong with you??”
“To say this frankly, my friends and family have treated me like total s**t. They’ve spread rumors and lies about my child. No, I am not crazy. No, I am not mentally unstable. No, I was not drunk when I named my child.”
“His name is Squire Sebastian Senator. That is that.”
The adamant mother explained that her child won’t even be allowed abbreviated nicknames.
“’Squire Sebastian Senator’ is only his first name. This is how it will be. He will not be allowed to have a nickname, he is to be called by his full and complete first name. He will not be allowed to have a nickname! If he even thinks about having his friends call him ‘Squi Seb Sen’ he is GROUNDED!”
“We come from a long-lasting family of both squires and senators. If you look back in our family tree, the survival of this clan is literally rooted in squiredom. We are all related to senators too. This name conveys power. It conveys wealth. It conveys success.”
Okay, if you say so…
