Woman begs pregnant sister, 'your baby names are trash, please don't use them.'


When this woman is embarrassed for her sister, she asks Reddit:

'AITA for insulting my sister’s wacky baby names?'

I (24M) have a sister a year younger, Hailey (23F). She is pregnant with her first daughter expected in March. My sister Hailey is a very free spirit person, and she definitely has her own taste in music, clothes, art et cetera. Unfortunately this extends to baby names.

She wants to name my niece either Redemption Cosmos or Venus Kali Cosmos — for real. She posted the names in our family WhatsApp group, and she asked us to vote for our fave.

My relatives were just going along with it, but honestly my sister is young and I felt like an a**hole for not saying anything. I messaged her privately on the side and said that the names are trashy & bad and would be a burden on my niece’s life.

I told her those names might be okay for a stripper (my sister works as a dancer in a local club), but they’d be hard to live with in a more “main stream” job. I really wasn’t trying to be mean, I just care about my niece and want to help.

Well, my sister forwarded my private messages to the GC and told my family I was a judgemental d**k.

She shared that the names were personally meaningful because this baby is her redemption and pregnancy has helped her make peace with her body and accept her flaws.

My mom has been leaving me nasty messages since then, but I haven’t listened to them yet, except the 1st one. AITA?

Let's find out.

ESH. Those names are pretty intense, but you definitely could have expressed your concern in a way that didn’t invalidate and insult your sister’s lifestyle and life choices.

NTA. This is a throwback to colonial times when they wanted 'meaningful' names. I am a genealogist.

Names actually in my family tree include, Providence, Freelove, Thankful, Experience (last name Bliss), Frittisweed, Strongwaters, Content, and so on. I joke that after kid 13, the Dad just looks around the room and says, Let's name this one Breadbox.

Yeah, I feel like that OP needs to read this post so they can see what is actually a ridiculous name that will hurt the child in their life. Dear god... Redemption? VENUS????? I.. I just can't. NTA. Somebody needed to say it.

Well, jury's out on this one. Are these names unacceptable? Did OP take things too far by insulting her sister? What do YOU think?
