Man Names Daughter Sarah Palin

Tell Mommy: What Would You Do?

Parents often disagree on baby names, but usually they come to some sort of agreement in the end. Maybe you use the wife's idea for the first child and then dad gets dibs on the second. Either way, what one Tennessean man did to his wife and child is selfish.


While knocked out from her delivery drugs, Mark Ciptak of Elizabethton, TN opted to give his newborn daughter a moniker to support the Republican presidential ticket — Sarah McCain Palin — instead of the name they had decided on, Ava Grace. Without the mother's knowledge, he filled out the documents for the birth certificate and is facing the consequences of his choice at home.

I'd have a thing or two to say to my husband if he pulled such a stunt. Tell me, what would you do if your partner chose a name for your baby other than the one you agreed upon?
