CHOOSING a name for a child is a big decision for any parent to make – and one that many will want to get totally perfect.

While some prefer to go down the traditional route when choosing a moniker for their little one, others will pick something slightly more unique. 

One young woman has revealed that she is really embarrassed by her unique name.

Posting on community sharing platform Reddit, the young woman explained that her mother gave her a unique middle name, but she absolutely hates it.

She claimed that her middle name is a mixture of two names.

Not only this, but she said that the name reminds her of an “old, fat lady.”
