A woman and her friend had both been pregnant together for weeks and had been discussing baby names. Little did they know, this would soon be the cause of some serious drama.
The friend, who the woman had known since college, was married to the cousin of the woman’s husband. The woman was 29 weeks pregnant, and her friend had just recently given birth to her firstborn, a daughter.
Keeping The Name Private
The woman found out that her baby would be a little boy, but chose not to reveal or get attached to any names until she had first met the child.
Passion For Names
On the other hand, the woman’s friend was obsessed with discussing baby names. “She kept asking what I’d go with name-wise”, wrote the woman. “I told her she’ll find out when my baby comes.”
Baby Name Speculation
As the woman’s due date approached, her friend grew increasingly curious about the baby’s name. Despite the woman’s insistence on keeping it a surprise, her friend persisted in asking. Her repeated inquiries became somewhat annoying.
Reaching the Breaking Point
Amongst her persistent asks, the friend told the woman that she should at least tell her what her name choice would be if the baby had been a girl. The woman was reaching her boiling point, and she hatched a plan to invent a fake name to keep her quiet for a while.
An Evil Twist
After discussing the conundrum with her husband, the woman decided on a fake girl’s name, which actually translated to the Spanish word for ‘poop’. Little did they know, that this prank would have some serious consequences.
A Surprising Turn Of Events
The friend, unaware of the joke, took the name seriously and actually decided to use it for her own child. However, her doctor was thankfully fluent in Spanish and revealed, to the woman’s horror, the true meaning of the name to her.
Confrontation From The Husband’s Cousin
The friend’s husband confronted the woman about the name debacle. He called her ‘heartless for “embarrassing him and Roxy” and ruining what should’ve been the greatest moment of joy in their lives.’
Questioning One’s Actions
The woman continued to reflect on the situation: “I didn’t think of that angle and realized I wouldn’t like it if someone did that to me”, she wrote.
Beginning to feel guilt for her actions, the woman reflected on her story online, asking for readers’ thoughts. Many readers were sympathetic: “You didn’t know she was going to steal the name”, wrote one. “They should have looked into the name’s meaning before actually deciding on it. They were lazy and stole a stupid name, not your fault.”
Other commenters were distracted by the friend’s bizarre “name stealing”. One person wrote: “Let me get this straight… She bugged you and bugged you to find out what you’d name your potential daughter with the clear intention of “stealing” it and then got upset when it turned out you were joking? That sounds like her problem.”
Considering the bizarre actions taken by the friend, many sought out her motive: “If she really cared about the name I think she’d at least look up what it means before deciding on it”, speculated one community member. “That’s why I think she only wanted to use it to spite you. Stupid games, stupid prizes.”
Registering The Name
One person offered a humorous reaction to reading the woman’s story: “Too bad they found out early though, this would’ve been even more hilarious had they actually tried to register that name”.
