Mum-to-be divides opinion after saying she wants to name her daughter Cinderella
| Last updated
A mum-to-be has left the internet divided after revealing she wants to name her daughter ‘Cinderella’.
One woman took to Reddit to ask users what they thought of her fairy-tale-themed name after she shared it with her boyfriend.
Spoiler alert, her partner was less than impressed.
She wrote: “Hey guys! I posted here before about girl names and y’all gave me beautiful names but now I need y’all’s opinion on a name.
"My boyfriend thinks it’s stupid and that she’ll get made fun of for it but I think it’s cute?
“'Cinderella' and I was thought Cindy or Ella would be a cute nickname. I don’t want her made fun of at all, but to me it’s cute.. please all input is appreciated."
Oh, this kid will definitely be hazed in school.
Imagine all the shoes that will be stashed in this girl’s locker.
Oh god, I’ve given them ideas..
The name left many doubtful, as one person wrote: “Belle or Ariel are cute princess names. The name Cinderella is not something to inflict on a human being. It's ok for a cat or a hamster, but a baby girl... With all due respect, no, honey, no.”
Another user warned: “I’m a kindergarten teacher, and there was a little girl at the school named Cinderella. No one made fun of her (that I know of). But definitely could see teasing happening, especially as she reaches middle school.”
A third simply wrote: “Just name her Ellie. Cinderella is not a good idea.”
While another said: “It isn’t my first go-to compared to the other princesses, but I don’t entirely hate it either. I do think it’d be more noticeable by others, and 100 per cent of people would assume she’s named after the Disney princess, whereas the other names (Belle, Ariel, Aurora, Merida, Elsa, Anna, Tiana, Jasmine, who tf else am I missing lol) could be played off as not being Disney-derived even if that was your reason for choosing it.”
Well, while this name isn’t exactly top of our list, it’s certainly not the worst child’s name we’ve heard as of late.
Recently, a mum went viral for naming her son Alpha Mael (spelt Mael, which means prince or chief) because it sounded like the ‘manliest’ name possible.
I guess, anyone can be a parent these days?
