A DISTRESSED worker didn’t know what to say when a new mom revealed she was planning on giving her baby the same first and last name.
Surprisingly, that wasn’t even the most upsetting part of the story.
Taking to Reddit where they could remain anonymous, the mom’s coworker ranted about the situation.
“I cannot believe that there is a split opinion for this at my office, but here we go,” they said.
“A co-worker of mine recently had twin boys after a long battle with infertility.
“She has made her first appearance in the office with her new babies to introduce them to our team.
“When asked what she had named the boys (as up until this appearance she was undecided) she told me that she was naming them ‘Sean.'”
Yes, both babies would be named Sean. One would be spelled with an ‘a’ and the other one with an ‘e,’ so they would be Sean and Seen.

They continued: “This co-worker’s last name is also ‘Sean.’ When I pointed this out she said, ‘yes, like Tom Tom or Jay Jay.’
Caught off guard and without thinking, the person allegedly told the new mom: “That is the most idiotic thing I’ve heard, and it’s going to be so confusing.”
Apparently, after this outburst, those around them laughed and looked away.
The co-worker continued: “After she left, I got a few text messages saying it’s not my place to comment on people’s choice of name.”
But the text messages were not from the mom herself, but other coworkers.
The person revealed they had been friends for over 12 years and her response was simply: “It’ll grow on you.”
Following this rather awkward interaction, the twins’ parents reassessed the situation and admitted that it really wasn’t a good idea to name both of their sons the same name.
The coworker updated: “Despite the fact they had already sent off the paperwork for their birth certificates, they called up the office and the paperwork had only been provisionally processed (due to Xmas time), and they have used this time to reassess.
“They have withdrawn the paperwork (FOR SEEN ONLY) and will think of a new name, but they are keeping Sean Sean as they like it.”
