In this day and age, "unusual" baby names are so common that most of us barely raise an eyebrow when we encounter a little Kombucha or Pretzel. So when a woman lost her mind on Mumsnet.com over the Disney baby name her friend gave his daughter, I thought, "How bad could it be?" Turns out, he named his daughter "Tinkerbell." Unsurprisingly, the internet has a LOT of thoughts about this.
Liverbird10 writes, "I know I am actually being unreasonable as it's none of my business etc. Also shooting people is generally not the way to approach such matters. I feel so sorry for the poor kid. She's going to go through torture at school. Not to mention the rest of her life. Imagine a high court judge called Tinkerbell."
At least she realizes her reaction is, in fact, unreasonable.
They are maybe going a little far with this whole shooting thing, but okay.
Luckily for Tinkerbell's father, there were a few users who thought liverbird10 was going overboard.
Yeah, because it's not like there's a ton of Tinkerbells running around.
At one point, liverbird10 dropped back into the thread to let everyone know a few extra details.
Dad has an obsession with fictional fairies...as opposed to real fairies.
I'm on team #UnreasonableReaction. If you don't like a name, don't give your kid that name. It's as simple as that.
