Why are parents condemning their kids to a life of misery just so they can get attention? If you want undivided attention for an unusual name, then trot your body down to the courts and have YOUR name changed legally. Stop using your kids to get attention. They're going to have a rough enough time with life without you adding misery to it. I can't imagine what this kid is going to go through growing up with such a selfish mother.....

Everytime a parent chooses, shall we say "exceptional", names for their offspring, I think of the song A Boy Named Sue. In that story, the dad names the son Sue to make him tough. Unfortunately, for these kids, the motive is pure parental narcissism.

Will he change his name to Knight Sebastian Senator once he graduate? Will he change it to Knight Sebastian President if he gets elected? Too many questions!

...why is she judging her unborn child? There’s zero guarantee that this child will be special, famous, wealthy or carry a sword. What you can teach is how to be humble, open, loving. I feel bad for this future family.
