CHOOSING a name for a child is a decision that all parents have to face and some will make the choice easier than others.
For many people, deciding on a moniker for their little one can be a huge challenge.
One woman, a mum-of-four named Emilee Kay revealed that by the time she gave birth to her fourth child, she had run out of names.
Known on TikTok as ‘hotmess.momma.of.4’, Emilee explained that she couldn’t decide on a name for her new little girl and felt pressured to come to a decision.
Emilee, who has 53.9k followers and 1.1million likes on the app, shared that she decided to let her husband choose her daughter’s name, but four months later, they really regretted the name.
The social media mum took to the video sharing platform to reveal her baby name regret, as she uploaded her clip with the caption ‘It will be a funny story for her to tell when she's older, right’.

“But anyway, she came out a girl, we had been talking about names the whole pregnancy, two hours after she was born, the birth certificate, knock, knock, knock, do you have a name?
“Not yet, an hour later – do you have a name? You can’t go home in 24 hours if you don’t have a name.
“So I was frustrated, didn't have a name so I let my husband name her.
“He named her Millie.
“At four months old, I looked at him and said ‘I hate her name’, he said ‘me too’.
“I said ‘why didn’t we name her Mabel?’, so at four months old, we changed her name from Millie Kay, to Mabel Kay”.
