A MUM-TO-BE has divided the internet after revealing the name she's decided to give her baby girl – with some even comparing it to "slime."

The anonymous woman took to Reddit and explained that she's always been a big fan of the name Gloriana even since before falling pregnant, and is now planning on giving it to her daughter.

"This is my daughter's name. It is important and it's something she has to carry for her entire life. I don't want her to be stuck with a stupid name."

The confused woman concluding by asking social forum users how "terrible" they think the name is and whether they think she's making a mistake giving it to her daughter,

The post was inundated with comments with very mixed responses – with one even comparing it to 'slime.'

"I was going to use Gloria for one of mine if he'd been a girl and use the nn Glory. I love it," wrote one.

A further added: "For me, the 'GL' sound doesn't sound very pleasant. It sounds guttural, like Gertrude or Greer. Or even more so, gore."
