Sophie Cachia, also known as The Young Mummy, admits she had some baby name regret. Two weeks later she decided she had enough of baby Betty.
Blogger Sophie Cachia, and her husband, Jaryd, welcomed a baby girl, Betty early last year. However two weeks after their daughter was born they decided the name really doesn’t suit her.
Two days after the birth of her new bubba, the 27-year-old revealed she had doubts about the name she chose for her daughter.
Issues With Names Post-Birth
Sophie posted on Snapchat, a photo of her little girl and asked her followers whether they had had ‘issues with names post-birth.’
‘I’m starting to worry she doesn’t look like a Betty. And doubting if I should have gone with the other name,’ she captioned the image, along with a pensive Emoji face.
Following her Snap, hundreds of Ms Cachia’s followers posted their opinions on Instagram – many of them admitting they had the same problem and it was simply due to hormones.
‘I promise the name thing’s hormonal!! I doubted my first daughter’s name and it wasn’t until my older sister told me to pull my head in and the name was perfect that I felt much better and adored her name,’ one fan wrote.
She posted again saying, ‘I hope I haven’t turned many people off having children,’ Ms Cachia said, referring to her live stream.
‘Well, I have turned one person off having children and that’s myself because I will never, ever do that ever again. I am sitting here and I have a little girl and I still don’t believe it… but I am still scarred.
Ms Cachia admitted she had a ‘really big freakout’ about the name because she had chosen two girl names that she ‘absolutely adored.’
I am Still In Shock
‘I was scared that I rushed and named her Betty really quickly. And she definitely does look like the other name too. I think the issue is that my body is in shock… I thought she was a boy,’ she continued.
‘So although I had two girl names and one boy I didn’t think I would have a girl.
‘So I did… I had a massive freakout this morning I said to Jaryd I wanted to change her name and then I didn’t want to change it. And now she’s Betty blue eyes and she’s beautiful.’
Ms Cachia asked her fans to bear with her ‘crazy’ hormones and said she may ‘randomly want to change her name again in the next few days.’
‘But I really hope not. So when I say stupid things like that please remind me that Betty is so beautiful and it suits her and it’s fine,’ she concluded.
Fast forward two weeks
After two weeks, the couple finally decided that “Betty” has to go and instead they named their baby girl Florence.
They decided to announce it through the perspective of their two-year-old son Bobby.
“So y’all want to hear a funny story? My mum & dad fucked up. Like, bayyyyyyd.
Mum was all drugged up and hormonal and started to doubt my sissy’s name as soon as she was born. A few days later, she totally snapped out of it and fell in love with her name all over again. That was until Daddy came along and dropped the bomb on us both that he started to doubt the choice too. LOLZ. Good one Dad.
Fair to say mum went into bonkers-batshit-meltdown-mode. It wasn’t that they didn’t LIKE the name anymore, something about her chubby cheeks not suiting it and the feel just wasn’t right.
So I’ve been given the gig today to formally RE-introduce my little sister. Mum & Dad say her name is apparently Florence, but me being the boss two year old I am, have chosen to nickname her Flossy which is really sticking (for me anyway).
Apparently this shit happens to parents all the time, but sucked in to mum because she unfortunately has to inform over 250k people #spewing. They wanted me to get my head around it first before they told anyone else. #mumplease I totally got it in the first hour.
To my folks, it’s really not that big of a deal. Cmon, she was 8 days old when they changed it… it’s not like she will remember. Just like I hope she won’t remember that I honked her nose wayyyyyyyy too hard today. #FlorenceBettyMargaretCachia”
