Friends Fall Out Over Woman's Bizarre Harry Potter Themed Kids Names

Friends Fall Out Over Woman's Bizarre Harry Potter Themed Kids Names

A woman has shared how she ended up in a row with her friend over the bizarre names she had decided on for her twin boys.

So, this anonymous woman had decided to call her twin boys after characters in the Harry Potter series, but instead of going for Fred and George - they're literally twins - she opted for Albus Tony and Severus Callum.

Yikes, it's pretty out there, as choices go. However, it's up to the parents what names they find for their kids, right?

Anyway, taking to Reddit's 'Am I The A**hole' page, the friend shared the awkwardness and animosity that has arisen between them following her explaining her decision.

She explained: "My friend (let's call her Nicola) wanted to keep the baby names a secret as everyone knows the sex of the babies and she's having a scheduled c section so she wanted some element of surprise.

"She's also a massive Harry Potter fan and had hinted about there possibly being a link so I expected a Harry Potter name in there somewhere.

"Anyway, she decided she was too excited to keep it in any longer and rang to me to ask me if I wanted to know the names they have chosen. It went something like this...

"Me: ooh yes please, I would love to know!

"Nicola: Albus Tony and Severus Callum"

"Nicola: (fuming) thanks for that, I can tell you hate them. Thanks so much for ruining this moment for me! (Hangs up)."

She continued: "Albus and Severus are obviously from HP, Tony is after her dad and Callum is a family member from her OH side I think.

"I feel awful because I paused for so long. I have tried to message and call her to apologise and say I do like the names.

"(I don't, Severus Callum has got to be the most random name I've ever heard of) but she keeps ignoring me.

"I feel really awful. I feel like iata [I am the a**hole] because I didn't manage to control my reaction and I ruined a moment she's obviously waited so long for.

"My other half says I'm not the ar****** because they are stupid names."

Well, it seems as if plenty of people agree with her and her other half.

One person commented: "[Parents] need to stop naming their kids with ridiculous names.

"These are not accessories, they are entire humans who have to exist with stupid names which is so much more important than her 'moment'.

"Albus Tony and Severus Callum are ridiculous names, it's almost like she wants them to get bullied."

Another said: "Readers made fun of those names when they were given to a literal child IN Harry Potter. What's Nicola thinking will happen in the real world?

"If she wants a Potter name, then use Brian or Bill, or Fred, George, Dean, HARRY, Viktor, etc. Plenty of choices that won't get her kids beat up and/ostracized.

"Her answer almost makes me think that she'd already been told the names were awful and OP was the call to 'prove' they were good, and that's why Nicola was so upset."

After searching the comments - and there are a few - it's difficult to find anyone who doesn't agree with the above assessments, however one person did say: "So long as you don't openly scorn the names there should be no reason why this should affect your friendship in the long run."
