Mum reveals popular ‘millennial’ names that kids say are for ‘old people’

She took to TikTok to share the rundown

Deciding what moniker to give your little one has always been somewhat of a contentious subject.

Whether it's annoyance over celebs and influences out-there choices or worries over what offensive baby names should be avoided at all costs - it's clear people aren't afraid of sharing their opinions on the matter.

And this was exactly the case for one mum who has revealed all the popular 'millennial' names that kids say are for 'old people'.

The woman, Amber, who goes by the handle @ciaoamberc online, took to TikTok to share with her 116.6k followers the rundown of names leaving viewers totally stunned.

She began by telling viewers: "The other day my daughter told me the names Ashley or Amanda, or my name is Amber, are, like, old people names - and I never thought about it this way.

"But she's like, 'Yeah, my teachers' names are like, Miss Erica, Miss Samantha.

A woman took to TikTok to share the popular 'millennial' names kids now think are 'old people's names'.

"There's Amandas and Ashleys'. And she's like, 'Those are just old people names'."

Amber then went on to list 'young people names' which included her daughter's name, Scarlett, alongside Charlotte, Olivia, Penelope, Isabella, Bella and Ella.

The mum went on: "I mean, for me, Ashley is always going to be my friend from elementary. So it seems like a kid name, but it's not.

"All of these names are like basically the new Margaret or Barbara."

Amber said 'young' names included; Scarlett, Charlotte, Olivia, Penelope, Isabella, Bella and Ella.

The short clip has since gone viral after clocking up a massive 2.8 million views in just the three days since it was first posted on the platform alongside thousands upon thousands of comments from people eager to share their reactions to the video.

One TikTok user joked: "If you got a shout out in 'Mambo No. 5', congrats you now have a granny name lol."

A second penned: "I always thought of old people names as like Edith, Norma, Ethel..."

Many others who had the new 'old people names' came forward to share their sheer horror.

"As an Amanda, I am horrified," revealed a third, while a fourth quipped: "Erica here. Feeling attacked."

A fellow Amanda piped up: "Um ow. First skinny jeans, then the side part and now my NAME?!" Apparently so.

"We’re gonna have nursing homes full of Nana Brittanys and Grandma Rachels," joked a sixth.

Another added: "What a way to find out that I’m basically Gertrude to this new generation."

And a final TikTok user prophesied: "Little do they know that the "new names" are actually grandma names to us lol."

Only time will tell..
