ONE of the most stressful things about welcoming a baby into the world – aside from pushing them off, of course – is choosing a name.
This dad is facing a problem when his wife wants to name their unborn twins but he knows it’s bad news.
Taking to Reddit, where he can remain anonymous, the 33-year-old father opened up to others about his current fight with his wife.
He said: “I am the future parent of twin boys. My wife and I recently decided to name our twins and she wanted them to match.
“I said I don’t like the idea, I have a twin sister who I fit into everything and that’s annoying for me.”
His wife claps her hands back and tells him she thinks it’s cute that twins have matching names, but “I told her for the sake of the kids we shouldn’t do name matches. and just force them to match what they both want.
He then explained that his wife and mother-in-law were pushing for the name-matching, but he and his sisters both objected.
When he asked if he was wrong to put his foot down, many people took to the comments section to express that he was not.
One person wrote: “It may be cute but your twins are still separate individuals.
“I’m surprised how many twin parents don’t seem to see this (I have twins, their names don’t match and neither do their clothes unless they want them to).
“It’s time to remind your wife your twins are individuals just like you and your sister.”
A second person chimed in and said, “I have a twin friend whose name matches, they both look alike and they hate each other’s names. Anyone can guess why.”
And a third commented: “My sister and I have extremely similar names and we’re not even twins.
“It’s frustrating because our parents can’t even get it right and it’s been a decade and a half since we were born.”
Who should give in in this situation? Experienced twin dad or real twin mom?
