PICKING a name for your child is a personal decision and sometimes you just have to realise not everyone is going to like it.
But one mum was left shocked when she told her nurse one of her twin daughter’s names, only to be laughed at for it.

Elizabeth-Leslie Edwards, posted the video to her TikTok account, elizzabeth_e, where it went viral with over one million views.
The mum-of-three, from the US, wrote: “When the nurse laughed at after asking what her name was.”
As Elizabeth shows her daughter whilst dancing in her kitchen to the song lyrics ‘If you’re wondering if I hate you, I do’ by SZA.
Elizabeth defended her baby’s name, and told user’s her name was Honey-Bae in the comments of the video.
She wrote: “It’s unique, cute, a family name and after some of my favourite Bible verses.”
She was shocked by the nurse and said: “I was like bro, did she really just laugh out loud in front of me?!?”
The comments section of her video was quickly flooded with cruel remarks from trolls, one wrote: “You really named her honey-bea?? Better be prepared for all the name calling she’ll get in school and don’t be surprised if/when she changes her name.”
“Dang why are parents so self absorbed and not THINK before they give their kid a name like that. It’s sad. Just sad. I really hope it’s a joke” Wrote a second viewer.
A third user commented: “The fact that your child will have to navigate a professional world with that name is sad… people think like adults, please!”
“Honey is cute. Honey Bea is a nickname at best, and embarrassing at worst. But to each their own.” Someone else jibed.
Another user told Elizabeth she must have ‘forgotten children are vicious little things and will constantly pick on someone with a ‘unique’ name.’
Elizabeth responded in a separate video writing: “Maybe you should teach your kids not to be little bullies.
“Regardless, I teach my kids not to care what others think about them, it’s not their issue that other kids have nasty hearts.”
One person replied: “I think Honey Bea is awesome!”
“This generation is filled with more uncommon names – the name you gave her has a beautiful meaning and she’ll love that growing up.” Said one mum.

I have eight kids and gave each of them unique names, people troll me but I love them.
I’m too embarrassed to tell people my daughter’s name so I always refer to her as her nickname.
