The man was given a feminine name by his parents, and he wants to help his future niece by stopping his sister from giving the baby a name that could cause her future harm.

“My parents are hippies and gave their oldest son a girl’s name to stick it to the man, and I will never forgive them for it,” he said.

Having experienced a lifetime of bullying and professional problems due to his name, the man felt he had to tell his sister what he thought when he heard the name she chose for the baby.

“When she told me, I told her it was a terrible idea. If she wants to name her Crystal, name her Crystal,” he said.

His sister tried to justify her choice, but the man was adamant she would cause the child harm by giving it such an obscure name.  He reminded her that they were naming a human, not a dog.

“I don’t care what kind of fashion statement she’s trying to make. This is a person who will have to live with that name until they die or has it changed,” he said.

The man’s mother and sister dismissed his concerns, blaming his own difficulty with accepting his feminine name.

“I told my sister she was being either selfish, stupid, or an incredibly strong combination of the two if she thinks her daughter will want a stupid name like Krxstxl,” he said.

This led to an argument in which he said he saw her and her husband as terrible parents for using their child as a fashion accessory.

After the argument, the man’s sister was deeply hurt, and his mother was furious with him. 

While he remained firm about his opinion, he couldn’t help but wonder if he had gone too far by calling them terrible parents, so he turned asked for advice.

One user said, “As someone who changed their name the moment they turned 18, you’re right. She is stupid. It’s a horrendous name that will do nothing but get the child bullied. It’s not unique or cute.”

Another user said, “Krxstxl shouldn’t be assumed to be pronounced Chrystal. Real life is not an algebra class. The letter X is not a placeholder for whatever sound they think should be there. Newsflash, that’s what letters are for.”
