Choosing a name for a newborn is a significant decision that parents often make after much thought.
While some opt for names that have personal or familial significance, others go for popular names to ensure their child fits in. However, there are those who desire the exact opposite—a unique name that sets their child apart.
This story revolves around a mother who is anything but proud of the name she chose for her son.
She revealed that she often feels embarrassed when introducing her son's unusual name to others, as people usually ask her to repeat it, unable to believe what they've heard.
