Dad Wants to Break a Baby Naming Deal He Has with His Wife over Her Terrible Name Choice

Dad Wants to Break a Baby Naming Deal He Has with His Wife over Her Terrible Name Choice

Aside from all the other stressors of pregnancy, naming your new baby can sometimes be the most stressful task of all. It’s a big responsibility to name a whole new person and it is not to be taken lightly!

A lot of couples opt for the “two yeses and one no” method, which guarantees that both parents are completely happy with the chosen name. Others though, make a deal before falling pregnant that the dad gets to name the girls babies and the mum gets to choose the boy’s names.

This can be a problem if you have lots of babies of the same gender as one parent will feel left out of the process. Even worse if you realise that your wife is absolutely terrible at choosing boys names!

A dad has taken to Reddit’s Am I The Asshole forum to ask if he’d be the asshole for breaking the deal he made with his wife because he cannot stand the name she has chosen for their son, who is due in September.

Check it out:

WIBTA if I break the deal I made with my wife that she gets to name our male children, because she wants to name our son Lannister of the GoT Lannisters? from r/AmItheAsshole

Not being known for suppressing what they really think, the good people of Am I The Asshole did not hold back.

“If you have a son and a daughter why in the world would you NAME YOUR SON AFTER A CHARACTER WHO HAS AN INCESTUOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS SISTER?”, asked one person.

Another joked that “Kingslayer” would be a more appropriate option while others recommend the woman get her GOT fix by naming her son “Jamie” instead.

“You need to tell her to knock that shit off. ‘I get to name our son after a family of incestuous murderers because we made a deal’ nah dude,” added another.

The dad’s response to this could be even more eye-opening due to the fact that his wife doesn’t see anything wrong with the Lannister family.

“The thing is she doesn’t see them as incestuous murderers. She knows that they are, but she focuses on Tywin being a badass, Jaime being honourable, Cersei being Mother of the Year and Tyrion being his awesome self. She even likes Joffrey. “He’s a whiny sociopath but he’s fun to watch right!”

Whatever this dad decides to do, he must not name his son behind his wife’s back while she is recovering from delivery. That would definitely confirm his asshole status.
