Choosing a name for your child is a difficult process.
On one hand it’s difficult to narrow down the choices but then there’s the part of you that’s scared to commit to a name only to realise days, weeks, months or years down the track that you don’t actually like it very much after all.
These parents sadly fall into the second category.
Sharing their stories on the parenting website BabyCentre there were many varied reasons for their change of heart.
For Jo it was an unfortunate coincidence that proved to be an annoyance that her and her partner just had to get over. Luckily they did with time and now love their daughter's name Florence.
"Sometimes, things are out of your control. The day after we named our baby, David Cameron [former UK Prime Minister] gave his baby the same name," she said.
"My partner and I had so many annoying comments, even though we got in there first. But now the shock has passed [and] we are very happy with Florence Isla."
Unfortunately for Sam she had to pick a name in a hurry and the remorse still hasn't worn off.
"I hate my baby's name, and I regret choosing it every day," she told Baby Centre.
"I wish I'd called him Arthur or Isaac. Actually, I wish I'd called him anything other than Lewis. I hate names that can be shortened, and Lewis' name gets shortened to Loo, which is just awful.
