And the latest one?

The expectant mother, who has remained anonymous for obvious reasons, took to Facebook to share her tale.
via: UnsplashShe wrote: "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."
She then went on to offer an explanation...
via: Unsplash"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??"
Her rant continued:
via: Unsplash"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."
So, what name did she pick?"His name is Squire Sebastian Senator. That is that."
And that's only his first name!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!"
She explained that the unusual name actually runs in the family.
via: Unsplash"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."
