We don’t choose the name ourselves. Of course, there is always the possibility to legally change it if we don’t like it, but the truth is that most of us just learn to live with it and just get used to it.
The name we choose can have a significant impact on our identity.
In recent times, parents have been opting for unique names for their children. This trend is exemplified by the popular TikToker Indie Clinton, who named her daughter Bambi after a Disney deer. This Australian mother of two shares unconventional videos showcasing her family and her attractive appearance.
According to Clinton, Love Island contestant Molly-Mae Hague named her baby Bambi just by chance.
According to her, she has always liked the Disney story, she has been reading it to her son since birth, and now she is reading it to her daughter Bambi.
Initially, Clinton wanted to name her daughter Paloma, but as soon as the girl was born, she was immediately struck by her “sweet, inquisitive personality,” not to mention her “big brown eyes.” It became clear that the baby should be named Bambi.
“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 loves 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?
