Choosing a name for your child can be an overwhelming task for parents, given the countless options available for all genders.

Some names are passed down through generations, while others are decided on a whim. However while some children seem to perfectly 'fit' their name, others may grow up resenting their parents for their chosen moniker due to its "strange" origins.

One teacher has criticised parents for the name they chose for their child. She even claims it was the worst she had ever encountered.

Whilst the name wasn't from a student she taught, it was a pupil in her mother's class - so the name has stuck with her since childhood, reports the Mirror. The anonymous teacher shared on Reddit: "My mum once worked at a school and there was a kid called Thank God."

"The kid was a troublemaker and misbehaved in class just to hear his atheist teachers scream 'Thank God! ' at the top of their lungs."

Reacting to the unusual post, other Reddit users shared their own experiences with unique children's names. One user wrote: "I know a family with four kids: Prince, Princess, Precious, and Becca. The Becca at the end kills me."

Another user added: "I was in line at Six Flags once and this woman in front of us kept calling her son Trust Jay."

"My mum, being nosy, asked about it, since it was an interesting sounding name. Turns out, it was short for TrustInJesus. The kid's first name was f***ing TrustInJesus or TrustJ for short."

A third social media user stated: "Mystic Pigeon? She was a client at my office. Apparently it's a real surname and her parents were hippies so named her Mystic. Like who's ever going to take her seriously? ".

Another user chimed in: "How about not giving your child a name? There was a lad I went to secondary school with whose legal first name was Unnamed Baby Boy. I don't know the story behind that though."
