Woman offended when old friend uses her name for baby without asking her permission

A woman, named Mia, posted on Reddit expressing her concern that her former friend, Melinda, had named her baby Mia without permission. Mia believed she was the inspiration for the baby’s name and sought advice on how to handle the situation.

Mia and Melinda were close in their 20s but drifted apart. When Melinda had a baby girl and named her Amelia but referred to her as Mia, Mia felt uncomfortable, considering it a potential naming after her without consent.

Seeking validation, Mia discussed the situation with a mutual friend who found it strange. Mia didn’t initially confront Melinda but mentioned the name coincidence when they met at a party. Melinda explained that the baby was named after her husband’s mother, not Mia.

The conversation turned confrontational, with Mia suggesting the baby was named after her and Melinda denying it. The exchange escalated, with Melinda stating Mia wasn’t important enough to name a baby after. Mia sought advice on Reddit, and opinions were divided, with some supporting Mia’s discomfort and others criticizing her sense of entitlement.

The majority of comments emphasized that the name Mia is not unique, and the world does not revolve around one person. Some found humor in the situation, sharing anecdotes about shared names with pets or acquaintances. Overall, the Reddit community urged Mia to let go of the perceived connection and move on.
