You cannot win with baby name arguments. Maybe you can win those arguments, but even then, baby names are such a personal choice that affects a kid who doesn’t even know yet what a name is or what names mean.
And there have been so many fights about baby names: the name is too weird, too generic, the kid will get made fun of, the kid will have ten other kids in his class with the same name, etc.
Should you even try to dissuade someone from naming their child a name that seems problematic? That’s what this Redditor is wondering.
The OP laughed in her friend’s face and told her the name was ridiculous.
She suggested that the name “Blac” for a white kid might be viewed weirdly, and “if she liked black so much perhaps she could name her child something less bullying-prone like ‘midnight’ or something.”
The OP’s friend called her an a for “being a hater,” and now the OP feels bad. Should she?
