Choosing a name for your baby can be difficult. When you have twins, you can choose similar names for them. But what if you like a particular name?
A woman who recently had twins decided to give her babies the same name, but with a different spelling. The story was shared on Reddit by his colleague.
The Redditor wrote: “A colleague of mine (39F) recently had twins after a long battle with infertility. She made her first office appearance with her new babies to introduce them to our team.”
The mom decided to name her two babies “Sean”.
The coworker said: “When I asked about the other baby she said” no they are both Sean, one with an “A” and the other with an “E” so Sean and Seen. âThis coworker’s last name is alsoâ Sean. âWhen I pointed it out, she saidâ yes, like Tom Tom or Jay Jay â.
Both names are pronounced like “Shawn”.
The coworker told the new mom, “This is the silliest thing I’ve heard, and it’s going to be so confusing.”
While some people laughed at the comment, others immediately looked away. The colleague then received messages “saying that it was not for me to comment on the choice of the name of the people”.
In an update, the Redditor posted that her colleague’s husband saw the post and “had a good laugh and ended up agreeing with the responses that the naming process was not ideal, and maybe the overwhelming process of having two newborn babies left them too tired to think properly. “
The new parents have withdrawn the papers for the baby named Seen and are planning to think of a new name. However, they decided to keep “Sean Sean” because they love him.
One user said, “It’s almost like these parents want to be unique or whatever, when in fact the names are so cranky and NEVER pronounced correctly.”
Another wrote: “The best advice I received regarding my twins was, ‘the world will focus on their twinning, your job is to nurture their individuality.’ I never dressed them the same, kept them in different classes, etc. . Best decision ever. “
