In an unexpected turn of events, a woman revealed she received a slew of mean remarks from people online after she shared her baby's name. But rather than staying silent, the distraught mother decided to hit back at the internet trolls.
Embracing parenthood is an extraordinary and life-altering experience that many couples eagerly await. The soon-to-be parents often engage in interesting conversations, like who their bundle of joy would resemble and what changes to make to their home to warmly welcome the newest family member.
Another exciting discussion centers around guessing the baby's gender and deciding what to name them. Some parents might want to name their little angel after a dear family member, while others tend to look for unique and meaningful names so their child can stand out.

The story we share today centers around a similar scenario. Brittany Marie Davidson and Wayne Johnson are a couple from Bishop Auckland, England, and when they shared news of their bundle of joy on social media, the response was unexpected.
But while sharing updates on her little boy, Davidson could have never expected to attract unnecessary attention from people who were said to have issues with his name.
In late August 2021, Davidson shared the news of her pregnancy on TikTok and doted on how she and her partner couldn't wait to welcome their miracle.
WELCOME TO THE WORLD, LITTLE ONE
Finally, on February 12, 2022, the couple welcomed a baby boy after four and a half years of being together. The delighted mother began sharing glimpses of her little angel on TikTok. In a video posted in March, Davidson confessed her love for her little one. The overlay text read:
"Well I hope you know how proud I am you were created (sic)."
In a second video posted on June 13, Davidson revealed the things she enjoyed about being a first-time mother, which included "a teething glove, cloth nappies, dribble bibs, and a baby carrier."
AN ADORABLE LION CUB
But while sharing updates on her little boy, Davidson could have never expected to attract unnecessary attention from people who were said to have issues with his name. She and her partner decided to name their son Seven Simba Johnson.
Before naming their son, Davidson and Wayne said they considered a couple of other names, including "Teddy, Blu, Phoenix, Mowgli, and Killian." When a commenter asked the TikToker how she came up with "Seven," she replied:
"Just a name we liked! Plus 7 is a significant number in our lives/relationship so it just made sense."
EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED
Not everyone was curious about why Davidson and Wayne chose a stranger moniker for their son. The couple claimed many people sent them cruel messages and trolled them for choosing an odd name.
In response to a comment that said, "there is [no] way your baby is called [Seven Simba]," Davidson shared her son's birth certificate, and the overlay text read, "Wanna bet." Her video has amassed over 87,000 reactions to date.
But that wasn't all. In another video that the TikToker shared to clap back at the trolls, she was pictured with her bundle of joy, and the overlay text read, "Imagine admitting to the entire Internet that you would bully a [4-month-old] baby."
Many netizens flooded the comment section of the first-time mother's TikTok videos, sharing their thoughts on Seven's unusual name. One user, @crazymammy83, wrote, "poor kid gotta grow up with that name rest his life." Davidson answered:
"Only until he's old enough to change it should he wish to. No different than calling your baby Rebecca [and] them deciding when older that they're Rob."
A second person @user27014362 called the baby "Poor kid," to which Davidson said, "I know, my poor baby. We're such bad parents." A third netizen @mcain1888 commented, "why would you admit to that? [As] soon as people do stuff like this, they should be removed and put in care."
A fourth user, @savagegirlmel_bfa, added, "I wouldn't dare call my kids any names from Disney; they would get bullied for it." The TikToker wrote in response, "I wouldn't dare allow my kids to bully someone based on a name, but hey ho (sic)."
The Bishop Auckland resident expressed that if her son found his name weird once he was all grown up, she and her partner would give him the freedom to change it. As of now, the couple is happy to stick with the name of their choice, and they don't seem too bothered with the criticism.
