PICKING the perfect baby name is not a decision to be taken lightly.
But one woman has revealed she hates the name she was given at birth claiming it's both tacky and cringy.
Taking to Reddit, the young woman revealed her older sister picked out her name, and her parents thought it would be perfect.
However, she finds the designer moniker tacky and says it doesn't suit her personality at all.
In the post, she wrote: "My sister named me and my mother and father were dumb enough to listen to her.
"My family likes my name and so do some people at school but I literally hate my name. I sometimes got picked on for my name as well."

She added: "I don't fit it. I don't like how it's spelt or how I say it. I don’t really want to say my name [because of] how embarrassing and tacky it is."
The young woman said her family now use a nickname for her, but people in school continue to use her real name which she hopes to change when she is older.
"I really want to change my name when I'm older and spoke to my mother and sister about this and they got upset and said that my name is fine," she said.

"As someone who can empathise, I'd say just change it. It's your name, and your life. If you want to make things easier for family and friends – and you are in no way obliged to, you could pick a name that is similar or starts with the same letter as your current name.
