A mum hit back at trolls who claim her newborn will be bullied for her unique name, and its equally unique spelling.

Kelsey, who named her latest bundle of joy Aprycot Margaret-Jane, says people should be more worried about bullies themselves, rather than her daughter being bullied.

She shared a comment left on one of her TikTok stories, which read: “Like, I promise she will get made fun of relentlessly for her name.”

The mum-of-four replied, “Maybe we should worry more about kids being bullies and not what we can do to prevent our kids from being bullied.”

Kelsey and her partner Josh have three other children, three-year-old Augyst, two-year-old Aryzona and their only son, Atycus, 1. The busy mum of four under four explains that some of her children’s name inspiration comes from movies – Augyst is named after the movie August Rush, while Aryzona is a nod to the film Raising Arizona and series Grey’s Anatomy.

She also goes into detail about how to pronounce baby Aprycot’s name:

The family has also revealed that their little’s ones nicknames are MJ (in reference to her middle name, which is in honour of her grandmother) as well as Prya.

  • I’ve seen worse names than that! I personally don’t like the name but it’s not terrible! She shouldn’t get bullied just because of her name!


  • There are some unique names out there…


  • Some more bizzar names out there tho


  • Why would you do that to your own child? Yes she will be ridicule as she get older I hope she grows to be able to stand up to those who may bully her.


  • I should say it’s their choice long as its not to harmful for the child


  • The four names are fine, it’s the spelling – but they aren’t my kids so my opinion doesn’t matter!


  • I don’t love the name but is the mums choice


  • Unfortunately with a name like that it’s very likely she will get bullied.

    • It’s not okay to bully but it’s a bigger issue than just saying kids shouldn’t bully.


  • If you are happy with the names you pick for your children then don’t listen to what other people think. At the same time you can’t get angry and upset if they say her name wrong. I’m sure she will put people straight.


  • When you choose a very unusual name you have to expect other people to comment on it and some of it won’t be nice. You chose the name so you must like it. Move on and ignore the comments. What did you honestly expect?


  • Apricot isn’t so bad. It’s the spelling that the poor child is going to find more of a struggle as they grow up.


  • Ultimately the only people who need to like the names are the parents themselves. I would imagine they picked their kids names 1 because they liked them and 2 because they are different. Even spelling them with a Y is just to stand out. I would imagine they are aware that naming their child Apricot, regardless or how they choose to spell it, is going to get people talking. People will talk, laugh and tease. This woman would know that and will also most likely complain about how horrible kids are when her daughter is bullied. Ignore the name and ignore the mother’s need for attention.


  • They aren’t names that I would use, but not everyone would like my children’s names either! My eldest has a y in both her first and middle name, so I’m not opposed to that at all. But I do feel that children need to be considered when choosing a name. Unfortunately my name was one that could be manipulated into many horrible names. But I survived.


  • In my opinion, these people making those nasty comments are bullies themselves. The name doesn’t affect you, so why say nasty things about it. Move on


  • I appreciate we need to teach bullies not to bully, but… I also think we need to consider our children first and foremost. This is a name that will definitely be made fun of, just as a rhyming word.
