A MUM-TO-BE has revealed she has picked the “perfect” name for her unborn child, but now fears it sounds “too sexy”.
The unnamed woman took to Mumsnet revealing her dilemma, and asked people for their thoughts on the moniker.
The mum revealed that she hopes to call her daughter Ruby – and it has divided opinion.
She wrote: "Is this name too sexy?
"We are due a baby girl and have always loved the name Ruby, it has sentimental family connections…but coupled with our surname I'm just not sure.
"Her name would be Ruby Hart. Does she sound like a burlesque performer? Nothing wrong with that profession, but not sure I want it connected to a baby and would she be taken seriously as an adult?
"What do you think?"
The name prompted a lot of comments, with some people praising the name, and others telling the mum she should steer clear.
One person against the name wrote: "I like Ruby but I'm afraid I do think combined with Hart it sounds like a name of a burlesque act."
Another added: “Yes sorry Ruby Hart doesn’t sound great. Sounds like a playboy bunny or dancer."
A third wrote: “Yep I think Ruby Hart does sound a bit 'take the first letter of your surname… to make your stripper name' things. Sorry, you did ask! Heart = is red = is Ruby – it does sound a bit much. I wouldn't."
However, some people were in support of the name, with one writing: "I wouldn’t think anything of the sort.
“Ruby is a nice name and Hart is a pretty generic surname. It’s a nice, compact name with a touch of quirkiness.
"I didn’t think of burlesque or porn at all and even now it’s been pointed out I don’t see it tbh!"
A second agreed, saying: "I think it’s a perfectly fine and ordinary name."
