Mum divides the internet after sharing she is considering changing her four year old daughter’s name that she no longer loves.
Taking to online forum Mumsnet, the mum claims she only started hating her daughter’s name after she sent her little one to school.
“I gave her a name (Esmee) which, I thought, was very original as I hadn’t heard another girl called it in about 20 years,” the mum explained.
“Only to find when she started nursery another girl called the same but spelt differently. [My daughter] is due to start full time education in September and there will be 2 other girls with the same name in the class.”
“Totally hacked off and really upset by this.
“Maybe an over reaction but in the 1970’s I was one of 5 named the same in my class and vowed never to have my DC’s live with the same. Now history is being repeated.
“Am I being unreasonable to change my DD’s name before September? I love her name but HATE it’s so common now.”
Despite the mum’s concerns, most people couldn’t believe the mum would even consider changing her daughter’s name at such an age.
– “I don’t think it’s up to you, surely it’s up to your daughter, it’s her name now, not yours! She might not care that she shares her name in the same way that you did.”
– “Are you crazy! She’s 4! You can’t change her name. Your DD won’t mind being one of 3. She is her name now, it belongs to her.”
– “I am so sorry but yes, she is 4 years not 4 months and will be so very confused if you change her name now!!”
What do you think MoM’s? Too old for a name change?
