Commenting on the Reddit post, they shared their colleague’s baby name, which was Strawberry Rain.

They then went on to explain why they thought it was one of the worst names they’d ever heard – as they thought it sounded like a type of shampoo.

The anonymous person wrote: “My coworker named her baby ‘Strawberry Rain’. Which would be a great baby name, if she had given birth to a bottle of shampoo.”

The comment got thousands of votes on the site, with many agreeing they weren’t a fan of the name.

One person replied: “This reminds me of Jamie Oliver’s kid named Petal Blossom Rainbow. Like…what the f**k man.”

Another said: “I would have gone with Strawberry Shortcake, but it’s her pick.”

“It does sound like a shampoo,” proclaimed someone else.

A fourth added: “I hope you’re lying. If you’re not, that kid will get bullied so badly.”

However, not everyone disliked the name, with a different user pointing out: “On the plus side, they can just shorten their name to ‘rain’ which isn’t so terrible.”
