Woman left fuming after ex partner 'steals' her baby name

omg 13/04/2017

Names don’t tend to be something someone can take ownership of, but a disgruntled woman isn’t happy that her partner's ex has used a certain name on her newborn baby.

“His ex who he already has a son with [and] who has just had a baby, has actually stolen the name we were going to use.

“We are on amicable terms and she knew what name we had chosen, now she has robbed it.

“We call the baby by this name and it is the name we want, but his son can’t have two sisters called the same thing can he?! Livid.”

The angry woman took to the parenting website Mumsnet for feedback, where she was met with contrasting opinions.

“You don’t own the name so are being rather ridiculous banding around accusations of the ex stealing it.” said one user

“Get a grip, you can’t steal a name, nobody owns them.” agreed another.

But another mum was more sympathetic, offering up this suggestion.

“I would pick another name insisting that the name you said you liked/she picked was your ‘stunt name’ to stop copycats picking the name you really like but kept to yourself”.

What do you think, does the woman have a right to be angry?
