Parents looking for the perfect name for their child will know it’s tricky to decide on one that everyone likes.

Baby books can be handy and dedicating their name to a family member can also be a popular choice.

But, one mum’s idea to honour her mother in the name of her child didn’t go down well with her husband.

Posting on Reddit, the dad explained that she was due to give birth to a daughter soon and had settled on the name she liked.

He noted: "We've been talking about baby names for a long while and we both have a list with our top five.

"We haven't decided yet and my wife came to me last night with a huge smile on her face, talking about 'finding the right name'.

"I asked to hear it and she said she wants to name our daughter Aquarius.”

He continued: “Which… was weird… I looked it up and if our daughter is on time she'll be a Taurus or if she's a few days late, a Gemini.

"Regardless I think zodiac names are just really not my thing but to name our daughter after a one she isn't even is?"

The mum explained that the name was to honour her mum who was, he noted, alive and healthy.

The dad vetoed the name and refused to consider it even as a middle name.

He added that Aquarius “seemed too far out of reach.”

The father also added that while his wife had vetoed some of his names she had stopped speaking to him.

And, she had got her mother involved too.

He added: "To make matters worse, MIL called me and asked to clear the air.

"I asked wtf she was talking about, and basically my wife told her about what happened but made it sound as if I had an issue with mother-in-law."

In the comments, people were on the blokes side.

One person wrote: "Your daughter's name should reflect what you both want for her. If she wants to change her own name to Aquarius Zaphod Beeblebrox when she's older, by all means, support her."

Another added: “Wife is not being reasonable right now. MIL shouldn't have been dragged into it either, as it's not her decision.”

While a third said: "Please don't name that baby Aquarius. I wouldn't even use that as a middle name.”
