Redditor TodaysSecretWordIs shared the parent’s predicament in a post.

“My girl name list is between these (I’m nine months along) and need help deciding something unique,” the mom wrote.

“If you don’t like my choices, please keep it to yourself!”

Her selection of options includes Umbrella (pronounced Um-bri-Ella), Berghandi “Burgundy but with Gandhi’s name), Poakly “like poison oak combined”, Periwinkle, and Xaxbella.

The crowd’s least favorite was Umbrella, with most people voting for Periwinkle.

In second place is Poakly, with Xaxbella and Berghandi tied for third.

Critics, however, were left astounded by the potential names.

“The one that’s killing me is ‘Umbrella,'” said one commenter.

“When you have to write out ‘umbriella,’ in parentheses because you know those sounds aren’t spelled that way.”

“Right? ‘I’m gonna name my kid Michael. (Pronounced ste-ven),'” added another.

“Ahem.  I believe you mean ‘pronounced steigh-vyghnne,'” quipped a third.

Some differed in their opinions on which name was the worst.

“Umbrella is wild, but Poakly specifically to be a combination of Poison Oak stopped me dead in my tracks,” said one commenter.

“For. What. Reason. I am fully dumbfounded by this and need to hear the motivations behind it to appease my soul.”

One was left wanting for more with the last unique name, left unexplained.

“Didn’t write an explanation for Xaxbella but I feel like that one needed an explanation the most,” they said.

“Everyone is answering with how to read it. By explanation I meant WHY lmfao. How did they ever come up with Xaxbella.”

Some hoped that Periwinkle would win the vote, if only for the sake of the baby.

“I hope she picks Periwinkle. Not good … but the rest are awful,” said one commenter.

“Voters solemnly directing the trolley onto the line with just one person,” joked another.
