Parents left stunned after mum chooses 'humiliating and horrendous' baby name

Parents left stunned after mum chooses 'humiliating and horrendous' baby name

Social media users are stunned by the baby's name, with many thinking it's a joke

Parents have been left stunned after discovering a ‘humiliating and horrendous’ baby name.

The name was posted on a mums’ forum and after another user on that forum re-shared the post on Reddit it quickly went viral.

A mum-of-two revealed she had given her son a rather unique moniker and now Reddit users are divided.

Lots of people were reeling over the name, branding it ‘humiliating’, ‘beyond bad’ and ‘horrendous’. So, it’s fair to say that it doesn’t have many fans.

Others joked about how the name apparently sounds like a character from Pokemon. Yikes.

The mum of the little boy at the centre of the debate shared pictures of her baby on Facebook with details about his birth while requesting tips ‘on transitioning from one baby to two’ after welcoming her first baby only 15 months ago.

“Can we do February baby trend!!” the post begins. “Currently 5 days post partum and just obsessed with my little man!”

The name has confused the internet.

She then lists the boy’s full name, and his unusual first name is Bugzlen.

“If anyone has some advice on transitioning from one baby to two, my babies are 15 [and] a half months apart. Could use the help!”

The woman who spotted the post and shared it said: “Was really hoping that this was a nickname.”

People who came across the post were obviously left in shock, with many questioning if the name was a nickname or perhaps a joke.

A mum named her baby Bugzlen.

One person said: “I had to go back and read it like four times before my brain would process what it actually said.”

A second person joked: “This name Bugzme.”

A third commenter wrote: “When you think you've seen every stupid baby name, Bugzlen comes along.”

“No. I'm sorry, Bugzlen?!?” a confused Facebook user added. “Why do you hate your child?”

It should come as no surprise that the name Bugzen is not on any ‘most popular baby names’ list.
