So, here we are, in the middle of a baby name battle that's shaking friendships and causing quite the drama. Our soon-to-be dad is adamant about not changing his daughter's name, a tribute to his late sister. Meanwhile, his friend and his pregnant girlfriend are insisting on using the same name, accusing him of being inconsiderate for not considering a name change and for involving the parents. The question remains: who's the real a**hole in this situation? Let's see what the internet has to say about this... 🍿
🚨 Name theft drama! NTA for standing your ground and exposing them.
"NTA at all. I will keep saying it, people on the street, teachers the whole way up, parents of their school friends, at parties, over and over you will constantly be the ones embarrassed at your own actions. You'll be so sick of me saying it you'll probably hate me and the name but hey ho I don't give a shiny s**t about anyone who gives no s**ts about me, my daughter and actually their own daughter, because you are knowingly setting your own kid up for this too" 😱

"NTA. Everytime I hear these stories, I feel like the best thing to do would be to embarrass the living s**t out of these two by publicly, on social media, sarcastically saying something to the effect of 'Thank you Dave and Kim. It's such an honor that you would also choose to name your daughter Beverly Rose, after my sister and Amy's grandmother. My family is so thankful for your thought and care, that you would also pay tribute to our loved ones.' Then next time they get pregnant. Steal their name and adopt a dog to give it to." 😂
