Teacher says parents ‘need to be stopped’ after coming across ‘unfortunate’ name

Baby names can be a pretty divisive topic, with some names proving popular and others not so much.

And according to a number of people online, there are some names that just shouldn’t be allowed.

A recent trend on social media saw TikTok users revealing the most “unfortunate” names they’d ever heard.

From this we saw how a nurse had called for a patient named Liam, only to be told by his mother that it was pronounced “Yum”, because it was short for William.

Umm… Ok?!

And now a teacher has decided to jump on the bandwagon and share a few of the names of students at her school.

In a video on TikTok, a teacher named Madison who posts under @lucky_mtz11, filmed some of the name labels on lockers.

She captioned her post writing: “Some of y’all parents need to be stopped. #WaitForIt #Comedy #WhoNamedYou #Laugh #HowDoYouEvenDoThat.”

The camera first zooms in on the name Astryd, spelt with a ‘Y’ instead of an ‘I’.

It then pans along the lockers, coming to a stop on the name ‘Teancum’.

The video quickly went viral, being watched over 225,000 times and garnering over 10,000 likes.

Hundreds of people also commented on the clip, with one saying: “The first one isn’t bad, but the second…”

Another wrote: “Oh man.”

A third replied: “Poor kid.”

“What the hell is the second one. I feel bad for that kid,” proclaimed someone else.

“I REFUSE to believe that’s real,” proclaimed a different user.

Others argued that Astryd was a lovely name, which prompted Madison to admit she also liked the name, but she needed to film something else in order to make the clip long enough to use the sound she put over it.
