A DAD has shared how his wife named their little girl Pakora after her favorite curry at a restaurant.
The customer, who is a regular at the Captain’s Table in Newtonabbey, Northern Ireland, shared the happy news with staff in an order note just days after the birth of his daughter.
He said he thought they would “like to know” in the Aug. 29 order.
The meal request included a chicken pakora burrito, a regular chicken pakora, and a chicken pakora melt.
And in a section for “Restaurant Order Notes,” the proud dad wrote, “My wife just called our newborn daughter, Pakora, about her favorite dish from The Captain’s Table… Thought you’d like to know.”
The restaurant later took to social media to share the good news along with a picture of baby Pakora.
They gushed, “Well, that IS a first! …. Welcome to the word Pakora. We can’t wait to meet you xx”.
Guests were quick to comment, with many sharing pictures of their own children alongside names like “Chicken” and “Tikka.”
Others, meanwhile, joked the pair were after a giveaway.
One person said: “People go to some trouble for a freebie these days.”
Another quipped, “This requires a free order.”
Another added, “This name might be okay for a cat or dog, but it’s awful for a human.”
Not only the parents have given their children unusual names.
A mother was mortified to discover she had named all five of her children after drugs.
Another said her boyfriend vetoed every single name she suggested.
