Pregnant Woman Demands Acquaintance Change Dog’s Name Because She Wants It For The Baby, Goes Berserk When Owner Says No

The human body is capable of many things, but pregnancy is probably the most incredible of all.

But being pregnant is not without its annoyances, like back pain and morning sickness. For one mom-to-be, she’s found another reason to be annoyed, and it has nothing to do with nausea. This mom is upset because an acquaintance has a dog with the same name she’d picked out for the baby, and is not having it. As if pregnancy wasn’t difficult enough!

A Facebook conversation by a woman named Jennay is being widely shared on Reddit, in which a hapless dog owner describes the strange message from the expectant mother, who we’ll call Mom TB. She initially writes to tell Jennay (who we’ll call Dog Mom) that she’s pregnant, and Dog Mom is happy for her, if a little confused about the news, because apparently they “don’t really know each other.” Dog Mom says congratulations, but Mom TB has a real reason for the message. And yes, there’s screenshots of the convo.

“It has come to my attention that your dog’s name is Tilly,” writes Mom TB, and explains that she wants to name the baby Tillie. “Obviously you understand that my daughter can’t have the same name as a dog.” After all, a human having the same name as a friend’s pet who you aren’t even close to would be terrible, just awful, truly a tragedy for the ages. Could you imagine the trauma that would wreck on an innocent infant?

Dog Mom puts up a valiant fight against Mom TB, explaining that she “doesn’t think it’s necessary I doubt you’ll see my Tilly and I don’t think anyone will notice.” At this point, Mom TB, who was trying to be polite with her totally reasonable, not at all ludicrous request, gets in her feelings and goes off.

She tells Dog Mom “since I don’t have kids I don’t understand,” and not changing her dog’s name would lead to “potentially ruining her unborn daughter’s life.” Yes, that’s right, Tillie the baby could deal with years of bullying and trauma, all because Dog Mom wouldn’t change Tilly the dog’s name. The dog, by the way, came first. The tragedy of it all. Scroll down for the receipts.


“You’re a disgrace,” says Mom TB, before one final plea: “Please reconsider.”

Yeah, no.
