PICKING a baby name is something that ultimately comes down to the parents – but in an ideal world, you'd also get your family's approval too.
However, this isn't always how it goes – and one woman claims she's been BULLIED by her grandma over her future son's moniker.
Sharing her experience on Reddit, the anonymous mum-to-be explained how her family have taken issue with the name Atlas Sage.
She explained: "I told my grandmother the name that my fiancé and I had picked out for our baby boy and I basically felt bullied for it."
After sharing the exciting news with her loved ones, the woman said her grandma came up with every way possible to put her down and slammed the "awful" name.
"She then said I was being a baby about it because I was upset," the mum-to-be continued. "I never expected to be treated like this in my first (and probably only) pregnancy. Has anything like this happened to anyone else?"
She says she hopes other kids will be kind and I said you’re literally the one not being kind right now! Just craziness really.
However, the grandma has defended her harsh words by saying she's worried about how the boy will be treated by his peers.
She continued: "It’s just disheartening to hear so many hateful comments about the name and it’s only from her!
"She says she hopes other kids will be kind and I said you’re literally the one not being kind right now! Just craziness really."
Unsurprisingly, other members of the forum rallied around the woman and said she should stick with her baby name.
One said: "I’m just hopping on here to say that that’s a really lovely name! Sorry you’re getting that negativity."
"Cool name. Not so cool grandma," another added. "Don't let anyone ruin that for you."
A third replied: "That’s a wonderful name! People are too opinionated."
