I love my baby names but my friends laughed at them – they say my child will be bullied & I’m ruining their life | The Sun

PICKING out the perfect baby name is no easy task.

But one mum who found the perfect choices was left upset after her friends laughed at her baby name picks.

Taking to Mumsnet, the anonymous mum-to-be revealed she wanted to use old-fashioned names for her child.

She revealed her friends mocked her chosen names which she initally thought were 'sweet.'

The mum wrote: "We are both fans of traditional names and so have decided on Arthur for a boy or Edith for a girl (we've decided to wait until the actual birth to find out the gender).

"I think these names are really sweet and could work for both a child and adult.

"Both our families have said they love the names, however when I mentioned it to my friends they started laughing."

Her friends told her the baby names were cruel.

They said it was 'cruel to name their child something so old-fashioned as they'll be ridiculed at school'.

She added: "My husband and I don't see where they're coming from but I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions on this?"

People were quick to take to the comments section of the post and share their thoughts.

Many were furious at the mum's so-called friends for their reaction.

One wrote: "Arthur and Edith are lovely names. Your friends sound vile."

Another person commented: "Love both names, ignore your friends."

"They won't be ridiculed as there will be lots of children with similar or the same names," penned a third.

Meanwhile, a fourth added: "Every second baby boy I know is called Arthur at the moment so I can't see any being picked on there.

"Edith/Edie type names are also popular so again, can't see what they're talking about!"

"'Nothing wrong with the names. Not a huge fan of Edith personally. Old-fashioned name have made a comeback," claimed a fifth.
