Baby name dispute leads to family feud 😠

A mother is threatening to cut off her son and his girlfriend after a dispute over the name of their unborn child. The mother recently had a change of life baby and named her Clara. The son's girlfriend insisted that they were going to name their daughter Clara too and that the mother should have consulted with them. When the mother refused to change her daughter's name, the son and his girlfriend retaliated by deciding to name their daughter Paxtyn. The mother disapproved of the name and threatened to cut off financial assistance if they went through with it. The son accused his mother of being controlling, but hung up when she asked if he actually liked the name. In a text exchange, the mother attempted to make peace by pretending to like the name Paxtyn, but the girlfriend responded with insults. Is it fair for parents to claim a baby name? How far is too far in a baby name dispute? Read on for reactions and comments.
