She explained, “I’ve been thinking way too hard on baby names and I’ve figured if everyone hates every name I suggest or even make up myself then I might as well just go with name, right?”

The mum said that men call their sons after themselves or add Junior at the end of their son’s names.

She said, “Men do it all the time so I could name my future daughter after me?”

She added, “My names Kayla and I’d feel weird about having another Kayla in the house is all. Kayla Jillian maybe? Someone please help me out before the stress makes me pop out an eye or something.”

Here’s what netizens said:

“While I think it’s the very epitome of egotistical women do it. Mary Shelley had the same name as her mother. I’ve seen some others.”

“People are very opinionated when it comes to baby names. But the only one you have to reach an agreement with is your partner. If you feel like you get too much hate, just discuss it with your partner and keep everyone else out of it.”

“I would never do it. Maybe my first name as a middle or give child the same first initial. I’ve also heard many frustrated stories about people who are Jr’s or fifths or whatever and it being an absolute nightmare legally. Mail, debts, insurance, homeownership, etc. can all be confusing when people have the same name.”

“Do not tell anyone what name you have chosen until your daughter is born. Choose a name that you love. Everyone else will deal with it.”
