An American couple has been trolled for the names they’ve chosen for their triplet boys – in particular one that’s a nod to an Australian capital city.
Influencers Rachel and Jordan Flom shared a video revealing the triplet’s names, and it attracted thousands of comments from followers.
The pair, from Nashville Tennessee, already have a two-year-old daughter, Emerson, and found out they are expecting triplet boys early next year. In the video clip, the pair revealed each of the boys’ names, and explained the meaning behind them. The names they’ve chosen are Locklan James, Wilder Scott and Brisbane Leigh.
“We have named the triplets, three boys in case you didn’t know,” Joran explained. “Locklan means from the lands of lakes. I’m from Minnesota.
“Baby B’s name is Wilder Scott. Wilder we just really loved, but then we found out that his family grew up in Wilder, Minnesota.
“The name of Baby C is Brisbane Leigh. We might say Bris for short. Leigh is my middle name, and I lived in Brisbane, Australia for six months. It just meant a lot to me and I jokingly said the name Brisbane once. I don’t think it is a name, but we’re making it one.
“The meaning of Brisbane … we looked it up after we locked in the name, and the meaning of Brisbane is ‘breaking of bones’. Which means he might be a sports player.”
The name reveal attracted hundreds of comments, including:
“Americans name their kids such weird names.”
“WTF these poor kids.”
“They will never find pens with their names on them haha.”
“Some people just shouldn’t name children. These are human beings who will have to spend their entire lives with these names, they aren’t pets who will never care or understand the origin of a name they respond to for treats.”
