Naming a child is an important decision that parents often find difficult.

Many couples disagree over a variety of names before finally deciding on one.

A man took to Reddit to share the horrifying experience he went through with his wife after naming their child.

“When my wife and I were trying to conceive, we had an agreement that if we had a boy, she would choose the full name, and if we had a daughter, I would,” he began.

“I was okay with that deal, but we both had veto powers if we didn’t like the name we chose.”

The couple eventually became pregnant and the woman was convinced that they would have a boy.

She decorated the room with blue accents, bought men’s clothing and accessories, and even had her mother knit things with the boy’s name she chose.

“When the baby came we saw it was a girl and I was thrilled because although I wanted both a boy and a girl, I always pictured my firstborn as a girl.

“My wife, although seemingly exhausted, was happy too.”

The husband told his wife that he would use the maiden name, which she already agreed to use, and wrote it on the birth certificate.

“Now a year later I come home from work to find my mother-in-law and my wife talking about my daughter, only using a different name.

“When I asked who they were talking about, they walked like deer in the headlights and blurted out they were talking about my daughter.”

The man asked why they used a different name and his mother-in-law said that was the name they used to call her.

“Then she ranted about how unfair it was that I chose the name and how it’s totally inappropriate for her, etc.” he said.

“I was shocked because this was the first time anyone had objected to the name.

“Now I realize that the reason my daughter has trouble recognizing her name is because we’ve been using two different names the whole time.”

The woman soon approached her husband and asked him to legally change her daughter’s name to whatever name she wanted.

But the husband stuck to his guns.

“I told her we’re not doing this and she has to stop. This led to an argument about how little support I have and how I stole her right to name the child she gave birth to.

“I told her the ability to veto any name was long gone and she can’t expect me to support something that stupid.”

The man said the strangest thing about the whole thing is that the name the woman wants is a strange female version of the name she wanted for her son.

“Imagine using a female version of the name Drake or Thomas,” he explained.

The woman, angry at not being able to get her way, left her husband and daughter to stay at her parents’ house after the argument.

“All of her family, except my father-in-law, calls me controlling and says it’s unfair that I chose the whole name and referred everything only to myself.

“Honestly, this is so outlandish and creepy that I’m contemplating a divorce.”

Reddit users defended him and questioned the woman’s behavior.

“That’s creepy. Follow your instincts,” one person wrote.

“She showed you that you can’t trust her. Open your eyes and don’t be naive,” added another.

“This is not normal or healthy for this little girl,” said a third.
