Woman accused of “child abuse” after giving son “attention-seeking” name


One mum-to-be has faced a slew of criticism after her relative claimed she was going to name her child Adolph.

The controversial moniker – which many would consider unthinkable due to its association with Hitler – is extremely rare as a baby name nowadays.

And lots of people have urged the unknown woman to rethink her decision before her son is born.

In a post on Reddit, a poster claiming to be a relative asked for advice on how to persuade their sister to change their mind.

They wrote: “I’m not pregnant but thought maybe some of you could provide some insight.

“My sister is 7 months pregnant and wants to name her son Adolph.

“No she’s not a Nazi, apparently she is deliberately giving him a “problematic” name so that he can experience what other kids from less privileged backgrounds experience.

“I begged her not to do this over FB messenger and she sent me this: “I appreciate you caring about the baby this much, but parenting amid this divided world must be radical.

The woman admitted that her son might struggle with employment

“White parents cannot sit idly by and allow their children to take up space and snatch opportunities away from those who do it more.”

The woman admitted that the name might “prevent him from getting a few jobs.”

But she said that it might “give employers time to pause” and consider contestants from minority backgrounds instead.

And she allegedly claimed that her son would be a “better man for it.”

The post was shared on Twitter where it was shared thousands of times and sparked a debate.

Naturally, lots of people were upset by the controversial name and urged the woman to change her mind.

One person commented: “Hmm I don’t think child services normally gets involved before the birth but this might be the exception.”

Another agreed, adding: “The day that kid is old enough to legally change names (and move out) cannot arrive soon enough.”

A third was more sympathetic to the unknown woman, as they suggested she could try a different tactic to ensure her son is educated.

They replied: “She…means well? Has she thought about spending time educating her son instead, using her experiences as a woman in a male dominated world?

“Instead of a lifetime of “so your mum was a Nazi?” that doesn’t make her do any work.”

What should the relative do to change their sister’s mind? Let us know in the comments below
