A pregnant woman is "worried" about her choice of name for her baby after her best friend admitted she hates it.

Her friend told her she was being "ridiculous" for choosing a "plain boy's name" for a girl.

The woman took to Mumsnet's popular Am I Being Unreasonable [AIBU] thread to seek advice, but said she was sticking to her guns over her choice of name.

In a post titled "My friend hates my baby name", the expectant mum penned: "Me and OH [other half] have agreed on a name for our daughter that we both love. I told one of my friends our choice and she said it’s ridiculous for me to pick a “plain boys name” for a girl.

"We aren’t changing our minds, and we are very set on this name for our baby. I just hope if people don’t like the name and are rude about it when she’s here, it will grow on them the more they think about it. Should I be worried?"

Her post was met with a string of replies from fellow Mumsnet users, keen to offer their thoughts.

One said: "Your friend is rude. F*** her. Don't tell anyone else the name till she is here. People are much less rude when faced with the actual baby."

Another said: "This is why you never reveal the name before the birth. Who cares what she thinks? She would no way have said that once your baby had arrived."

A third commented: "Well is it a boy's name? Precisely why you don't announce the name pre birth!! My bff [best friend forever] wasn't keen on ds's [dear son's] name but she liked plain names and knew I didn't!! Kept the name and bff loved him anyway!!"

And another asked: "That's really rude of her but she thinks she is doing you a favour if it really is a bit of an unusual name for a girl. Would you share the name with us??"

A fifth Mumsnet user said: "It's really rude but I suppose it depends how 'whacky' it would be for a girl?"

And another said: "To be fair if you’ve picked something like James for a girl, I’d secretly think you were a bit wannabe celeb/up yourself, but I wouldn’t say it out loud!"

She said: "The name is a name that can be used for both genders, but comes across as more of a girls name (in my opinion), and I always thought it was a girl’s name. It’s pretty unusual, and a soft name, but it’s not anything super masculine.

"The name is Brynn (pronounced as brin)".

Mumsnet users offered their support. One said: "Cute name, don't worry about your friend, and don't tell anyone else!"

Another added: "I don’t like all the names my friends have chosen OP [original poster], but I’ve kept it to myself as it’s got nothing to do with me at all! Even the worst one has grown on me a bit over the last couple of years.

"As for Brynn… I can’t help but visualise Rob Bryden when I hear it, but if I knew of a baby girl Brynn, I’d get used to it."
