Sophie Cachia, also known as The Young Mummy, admits she had some baby name regret. Two weeks later she decided she had enough of baby Betty.

Blogger Sophie Cachia, and her husband, Jaryd, welcomed a baby girl, Betty on January 15th. Now two weeks later they have decided the name really doesn’t suit her.

Two days after the birth of her new bubba, the 26-year-old revealed she had doubts about the name she chose for her daughter, shares Daily Mail.

Sophie posted on Snapchat, a photo of her little girl and asked her followers whether they had had ‘issues with names post-birth.’

‘I’m starting to worry she doesn’t look like a Betty. And doubting if I should have gone with the other name,’ she captioned the image, along with a pensive Emoji face.

Following her Snap, hundreds of Ms Cachia’s followers posted their opinions on Instagram – many of them admitting they had the same problem and it was simply due to hormones.

‘I promise the name thing’s hormonal!! I doubted my first daughter’s name and it wasn’t until my older sister told me to pull my head in and the name was perfect that I felt much better and adored her name,’ one fan wrote.

She posted again saying, ‘I hope I haven’t turned many people off having children,’ Ms Cachia said, referring to her live stream.

‘Well, I have turned one person off having children and that’s myself because I will never, ever do that ever again. I am sitting here and I have a little girl and I still don’t believe it… but I am still scarred.

Ms Cachia admitted she had a ‘really big freakout’ about the name because she had chosen two girl names that she ‘absolutely adored.’

‘I was scared that I rushed and named her Betty really quickly. And she definitely does look like the other name too. I think the issue is that my body is in shock… I thought she was a boy,’ she continued.

‘So although I had two girl names and one boy I didn’t think I would have a girl.

‘So I did… I had a massive freakout this morning I said to Jaryd I wanted to change her name and then I didn’t want to change it. And now she’s Betty blue eyes and she’s beautiful.’

Ms Cachia asked her fans to bear with her ‘crazy’ hormones and said she may ‘randomly want to change her name again in the next few days.’

‘But I really hope not. So when I say stupid things like that please remind me that Betty is so beautiful and it suits her and it’s fine,’ she concluded.

Fast forward two weeks

Now the couple have decided that “Betty” has to go and instead they will name their baby girl Florence.

They decided to announce it through the perspective of their two-year-old son Bobby.

“So y’all want to hear a funny story? My mum & dad fucked up. Like, bayyyyyyd.

Mum was all drugged up and hormonal and started to doubt my sissy’s name as soon as she was born. A few days later, she totally snapped out of it and fell in love with her name all over again. That was until Daddy came along and dropped the bomb on us both that he started to doubt the choice too. LOLZ. Good one Dad.

Fair to say mum went into bonkers-batshit-meltdown-mode. It wasn’t that they didn’t LIKE the name anymore, something about her chubby cheeks not suiting it and the feel just wasn’t right.

So I’ve been given the gig today to formally RE-introduce my little sister. Mum & Dad say her name is apparently Florence, but me being the boss two year old I am, have chosen to nickname her Flossy which is really sticking (for me anyway).

Apparently this shit happens to parents all the time, but sucked in to mum because she unfortunately has to inform over 250k people #spewing. They wanted me to get my head around it first before they told anyone else. #mumplease I totally got it in the first hour.

To my folks, it’s really not that big of a deal. Cmon, she was 8 days old when they changed it… it’s not like she will remember. Just like I hope she won’t remember that I honked her nose wayyyyyyyy too hard today. #FlorenceBettyMargaretCachia”

Congratulations guys!

Did you ever have baby name regret?

  • You definitely need to agree on names before the birth regardless of appearance when he/she arrives. Your baby’s appearance maybe very different when he/she is a few months old. I know one who started with dark hair, then it went fair, then strawberry blonde. All within 18 months. His Dad’s did the same


  • My husband was a total pain in the butt in regards to naming our first. We had a boys name sorted which oddly was a name I had suggested and my husband said he hated until he asked his Dad what we should call the baby and his Dad said the name I had picked for a boy so then my husband suddenly liked it….typical. I mentioned 50 million girls names and he hated them all. I started mentioning names I wasnt even keen on just to have a name sorted. In the end I said if the baby was born and it was a girl and we didnt have a name for her I was naming her after the Doctor so she would be Bernadette. My husband freaked out ….finally he decided on Georgina… then decided on her middle name which i wanted to start with E so her initals would be GEM which is her nickname. After she was born I questioned the name Georgina several times but she is and always has been called Georgie which im happy with.
    I named the other two and love their names.


  • We didn’t have a name yet for our first and she went 5 or 6 days nameless, lol ! For our boy we took a long time to pick and I like it till the day of today :)


  • Betty is a perfectly fine name for a girl. Children will end up owing their names. A name is not official until it is registered along with the birth of the child. Never had any regret with names.


  • I was the opposite – somehow I was sure I was going to have a boy, which I did, and had already picked out the names. He was going to be Timothy Brian. After his birth I looked at him and said you are DJ – never before thought about, but he so didn’t look like a Timothy Brian.


  • With my first pregnancy, we picked out our favourite girl and boy names. We had a boy so we saved the girl names and with my following pregnancy, picked out more boy names. I am so glad we had a girl because the new boy names were horrendous


  • There is so much pressure placed on new parents to pick the perfect name. Everyone seems to have an opinion about the names you choose and question why you picked them.
