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...

There's nothing quite like having a baby.

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 your friends don't approve of can cause huge issues.

As one woman shared on Facebook 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!

Well, it triggered the cancelation of a baby shower and the potential ruin of several friendships.

The expectant mother, who has remained anonymous for obvious reasons, took to Facebook to share her tale.

She 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...

"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:

"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.

"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."

"My baby's name WILL be a revolution."

Okay, if you say so...
