Folks are pretty bold with unusual baby names these days, but one mom-to-be wasn’t prepared for the internet’s brutal backlash against “Squire Sebastian Senator.”
The unborn child’s mother vented on Facebook after her baby’s name was ridiculed by friends and family. While canceling the event, she roasted her entire family for their “judgemental” behavior, defiantly claiming that her son’s name will spark a “revolution.”
Let’s break down her epic Facebook rant defending Squire Sebastian Senator.
“No, I was not drunk when I named my child,” the anonymous mom-to-be wrote.
She goes on to insist the mouthful of a name conveys “success, power and wealth.”
Her creative name idea will apparently “push people to question everything.”
Not all creative baby names are bad, but Squire Sebastian Senator is certainly bizarre.
Imagine introducing yourself that way over an entire lifetime. It’s a lot. Despite the mother’s attempts to justify her name choice, it ended up seeming more like a self-indulgent move than a legitimate name.
Social media joined in to explain a few things to the mom.
Mother of #SquireSebastianSenator
No one is talking shit about your baby.
They are talking shit about you.

First Name: Squire Sebastian Senator
Because she comes from a long line of Squires and Senators.
I guess my dad should have named me Long Dick Dong!!

Some even adopted the name on Twitter. Others are considering a real-life name change.
I legally changed my name when I turned 18 to #squiresebastiansenator . Come to find out…the only appropriate nickname to go with a first name like that is douchebag.

At least one person doesn’t think the name is so bad.
"Squire Sebastian Senator"?
I've seen worse
At least I can pronounce it (I think)

Many are suggesting the mother reconsider her choice.
I don’t think they’re judging the baby. If they’re judging anyone, it’s you. More than that, they’re a little afraid for this baby coz you sound mentally unstable. If it was just the name, I don’t think we’d be talking about it. Seriously, see a shrink. #SquireSebastianSenator pic.twitter.com/XBtLLrCZne

We’re glad Squire Sebastian Senator’s mom sees a bright future for her son, but maybe consider letting the kid use a nickname?
