We all get it, sometimes it’s really difficult to figure out a name for your child. However when a wife found out the name her husband wanted to call their daughter, she freaked out and is now considering divorcing him. He wants to name their daughter after his ex that he might still have feelings for.

The wife shared her story on Reddit, titling the post “Divorce on Table Because Husband And I Can’t Agree on Baby’s Name.” In it, she explained:

“Hello reddit. This title might look funny but its an actual problem between me (23F) and my husband (24M). We’ve been dating for a year, been married for 2 years. I got pregnant like 7 months ago so recently we started discussing name for the baby. Ever since we found out it’s gonna be a girl my husband wants to name it like his ex’s name. It’s not any ex but the one he dated for long period of time and loved the most. In the beginning of our relationship we had many problems because of her but she moved away so the problems went away. He really loved her and he never hid that from me but I thought it was over once she moved away. Now he made it clear that he wants the baby to have that name and I can name the second child. When I asked him why does he want that name so badly he said just because he and his ex didn’t work out doesn’t mean he doesn’t want something to keep reminding him of her. He doesn’t understand how much its affecting me and keeps saying it’s just the hormones. Is he still in love with the ex or its normal that he wants to name OUR child like that. Thank you!”

What are YOUR thoughts? Does she have a good point?
