And I bloody love the horrified reactions more than the delighted ones:

What???
Oh my god that's a mouthful isn't it?
Is that a name? Oh, I'd call him 'xxx'

It's not even that out there, I think people are just rude, but it cracks me up

What name is it?
Do you think he will be amused or upset by people's reactions when he is older?

My kids have names that people seem to love or really hate. They’re all traditional welsh names. I do get a bit of a kick out of the way some people react. 😂

Interesting that you’re apparently brave enough to give your kid a “marmite” name but you’re not brave enough to write it on an anonymous forum….

Why do you need to know the name? It's not a post about whether or not we were unreasonable to choose the name. Its about where iabu to find it amusing when people are confused/rude 🤷🏼‍♀️

FWIW it's not particularly out there at all, I'm sure you'd be highly disappointed if I revealed the name.

Ok, but this forum is for AIBU, so your post is utterly pointless. I can’t make sense of why you don’t understand why people would want to know the name. Surely you knew people would be curious when you wrote this post 🙄
