One wrote: "She's right: it is an awful name. First, how do you even pronounce it? Second, why do you want to saddle your daughter with such a difficult name? Third, there are lots of girls' names that start with M if you want her and your boyfriend to have the same initials. Pick an easier M name – May, Mary, Meghan, Melissa, Monica, Molly, Monique."
Another user commented: "Yes, you should care what she says. I don’t agree with her that the name is “god-awful,” but I do strongly urge you to choose a different name."
A third penned: "It’s your baby so tell her to MYOB but just for the record I think it’s terrible too but seen as it’s not my baby either I shall mind my own business too."
