A woman is arguing with her sister over her son’s name.
“She told me that she has named him ‘Pika’ after Pikachu… because her boyfriend was obsessed with Pokémon when he was younger,” the user wrote. “I couldn’t help but burst out in laughter because it sounded so ridiculous. My sister got very angry with me and asked me why is that funny. I told her straight up that Pika is the most horrible name I have ever heard and her son is probably going to get bullied for the rest of his life. Now she isn’t talking to me because I apparently ‘disrespected’ my nephew. But am I wrong for wanting him to have a NORMAL name? I’m honestly in disbelief that she genuinely wants to name her son that.”
“Pika isn’t a normal name and if people will ask out of curiosity where that name comes from, they’ll be bullying him for it,” a user commented.
“I think your concerns are totally valid,” another said.
