Our name isn’t something we choose ourselves. Of course, there is always the opportunity to legally change it if we don’t like it, but the truth is that most of us just learn how to live with it and simply get used to it.
Our name can play an important role in maintaining our self-identity.
In recent times, new moms and dads tend to give their bundles of joy unique names, just like the famous TikToker Indy Clinton. This Aussie mom of two, who is an influencer that shares quirky videos featuring her sexy looks and her family, caused quite a stir when she shared with her followers that she named her baby daughter Bambi, after the Disney deer character.
Love Islander Molly-Mae Hague naming her baby Bambi as well was just a pure coincidence Clinton said.
According to her, she has always loved the Disney’s story and she has read it to her son since he was born, and she’s now reading it to her daughter Bambi.
Initially, Clinton wanted to name her daughter Paloma, but the moment the girl was welcomed into the world she was immediately struck by her “sweet, curious nature,” not to mention her “big, brown eyes.” It was clear the baby needed to be named Bambi instead.
“Four months ago, when I was giving birth, I was convinced Bambi was the most unique, unusual name that nobody would use,” this mom said.
“Good on Molly-Mae, though. It looks like great minds think alike. We were set on calling her Paloma at first. That was her name, and nothing was going to change that. But I was reading the book to Navy one night, and it came to me.”
The moment she came up with the name she believes suits her now 4-month-old daughter perfectly came as lightning striking.
“I sat up and yelled, ‘what about Bambi?’ and from then on, it stuck.”
For some reason, both Molly-Mae and Indy Clinton received harsh criticism over the choice of name.
Clinton, however, doesn’t mind what people say as long as she loved the name herself.
“You know, unique names are the new trend,” the 25-year-old mom said. “Bambi is going to fit right in with the Rivers, Bears, Forests, Stormis, and Wolfs. I’d be more concerned calling my kid a name from the 1900s. People will criticize anything these days, so at least give them something to talk about.”
What do you think of this? Is Bambi a proper name for a child?
