She wants to name her baby after her dead cat, her husband categorically refuses: “It annoyed him…”

There are situations that are more delicate than others… In particular the one in which Marie* found herself. Marie is very sensitive and she writes her despair on the dedicated Reddit blog. There, she explains having created a certain cold, which she does not understand, with her husband during the birth of their third child. The newborn arrived, it was necessary to choose a first name for this very little boy. That’s when Marie came up with “Jake”, which is none other than… the name of her recently deceased cat. “A few months before the birth of our third child, my cat died”, she explains. “I had him since he was a kitten. Jmourned his death for hours (…) I felt that I had lost a big part of my life because he had always been there for me”she continues.
Remembrance and nostalgia therefore led Marie to propose the name “Jake” for their baby: “I suggested it because it was a nice name and I thought it would suit him”.

“Immature and Weird”

But the mother of the family receives a categorical refusal from her husband. “This annoyed my husband because he didn’t want our son’s name to be the same as our cat’s.” says Marie, who insists on giving at least the name of the kitty as a middle name to their son. A second request which did not please the dad any better, who “freaked a cable”left the house for a few hours before blaming her on the phone for being “immature and weird”.

If today Marie did not follow her first instinct, she persists in thinking that it would have been nothing. “unusual”. “Part of me wanted one memory of my cat who was so important in my life”, she justifies. The story does not tell what the child was eventually called.
