Man refuses to sign son’s birth certificate as girlfriend names boy after her ex

It's never going to be easy when it comes to baby names.

But the important thing is that a joint decision will be always made between the mum and dad.

At least that's what one man thought would be the case…

A bloke has opened up about his dilemma when his girlfriend tried to name their baby boy after her ex-partner.

He told how the couple had agreed on a few names, but was left shocked when it came to signing off the birth certificate.

Writing on Reddit, the man revealed how he noticed his partner had named their boy after her ex-lover.

He mentioned how he got with his now-girlfriend after her eight-year relationship ended and didn't seem completely over it.

As the years went on, she was moving forward and introduced him to the former flame when he moved to the same city.

After four years of happiness, the couple welcomed their first child and had difficulty coming to a decision about a name.

It wasn't until he glanced at the birth certificate when he noticed his girlfriend's ex-partner's name on there.

He wrote: "She's been fobbing me off so I told her I'm not signing the certificate until we change the name back to what we agreed.

"This caused a bit of a row with her and now she's refusing to talk to me until I sign the certificate and agree to the name."

Now the man is suspicious about his son and wants a paternity test to make sure he's the dad.

He added: "I'm now plagued with doubt and wondering if I should get a paternity test or whether she's still in love with him."

Fortunately for the fella, many agreed with him when he posted his dilemma on the open forum.

One wrote: "This is such a red flag."

Another added: "For sure, insist on a paternity test before signing the birth certificate."

A third commented: "Get a DNA test and don't sign until paternity is established and she changes the name to what you agreed upon."
