In a Reddit post, the mom-to-be shared that she’s currently pregnant with her first child.

Apparently, the father of her child has mentioned on numerous occasions that he wants to name the baby after his brother, who died when he was younger, and that he has chosen a name for both a boy and a girl.

The woman explained: “The problem is that I absolutely hate both names he chose.

“The girl is really ugly and the boy is just weird, I don’t even want to use them as a middle name tbh.

“I’ve asked him several times to reconsider or to compromise by choosing a similar name, but he won’t back down because he says he wants to honor his brother’s memory and I understand, but I do really wish he would just choose something else. “

The distraught woman ended the post by asking if she was wrong.

She also revealed the baby’s possible names: “The girls name is Patrice/Patricia and the boys name is Dustin.

“They’re not crazy like ‘Banjo Bob’ but they’re just ugly and I honestly don’t like any of them.”

People filled the comments section with different opinions.

“Baby names should always please both parents,” one person commented.

With a strong poise, another person said: “It takes two to make a baby so you should have a say in the name.

“While he has saved both of these names for his future children, he should know that it is always possible that the mother of his children will have her own desires and will have to make compromises.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous to expect you to just go along with the names he had in mind (unless you really like them, which doesn’t seem to be the case here).”

An opposing user wrote, “You want him to compromise, but you won’t do the same. What’s wrong with only having it as a middle name?”

Another user tried to argue: “You guys have to agree on the baby name, that’s not up for debate. But let him have the middle name as it still honors the memory of his brother.

“The middle name interests nobody anyway. That way, you can have a first name that you both want and still get it his way.

“These names aren’t too bad either. Dustin is just a name and Patricia isn’t bad. There are so many derivatives of it, find one you want.”
