"My Husband Named Our Daughter After His Ex."

Updated: Mar 29


Anonymous Question


"Me and my husband have been together for 5 years now and have 3 kids together. We just recently had a baby girl I later found out about his ex-girlfriend's NAME. He told me about her early in our relationship and apparently from his story she was the "One That Got Away." My question of concern and want some advice on is he named our daughter after his ex-girlfriend. Is it something I should be concerned about or making a big deal about?"

Misty Mae There are names you stay away from. Ex's are one of them


Renea Workman I would be deeply upset if I was you. When you were discussing names and had settled on that one, he should of said something. How horrible for you. Your man is a total ass for that move!


KaLee Behrens I’d change her name. And when he flips out, tell him why. And don’t let him just say he “just likes the name”. Nah man, you just like the woman. The name is a placeholder. Fuck that. You’re handling it better than me. His shit would’ve been on the front lawn. Bc I’m sure the conversation of giving her your middle name came up and I’m sure he shot that shit down.


Nacy Engroff Let it go. Its a name for goodness sake. I have 3 daughters and 2 sons. Thats alot of names omitted if we didnt use ex names.


Adrianna Falcone First of all, you said he talked about this female early on in your relationship. Did he say "she was the one that got away?" That should have been your first red flag. Also, you obviously agreed on the name because you gave birth to the child and signed the certificate. If you have an issue with it, why did you allow him to name the child?


Vikki Zilonis I'm so sorry, I couldn't even deal with this. How heartbreaking this must be for you. I'd use her middle name or insist on changing her name. Many courts allow parents to do this within the first year of birth without needing a court order. <3 Blessings to you, hon!

Brenda Espinosa Have a talk w your man about changing it because you would’ve never allowed him to name a child after his ex. Just because the timing was off doesn’t mean she’s the one who got away. You may be reading too much into that part. Ask him if that is in fact the reason he named her the name.
