Areola — The Bump
Baby Names

Areola

My husband and I were out to lunch and there was a lady who had a baby girl and she had named her Areola. So I don't know if it's just me or not but I am not sure if I would have picked that as a name. I'm all for different / less common names if that's what people prefer but that just seems a little much to me. Am I the only one?

Re: Areola



  • This sounds a lot like those " I totally have a student named La-a, can you believe it? " stories.

    I am being serious. My husband and I were both surprised when the lady told us the name of her baby. I am just wondering if other think it's a bit much like I do. I am not super active on this board, I am active mostly on my BMB and TTGP board before that but I do lurk on this one from time to time and comment here occasionally too.

  • I just... enh. Are you sure it wasn't Aurelia?

    I have a hard time believing anyone with stories like this, nothing personal.
    @Bringmemylongswordho

    Yes I am sure. We even repeated the name back to her and she confirmed it by saying "yupp just like the skin by the nipple". She said it was pretty and unique and no one else would have that name when she was older.

    To the bold: no worries. I just wanted to confirm that I am not a troll or anything like that.

  • Why would you name your child a name that she would be made fun of. SMH

  • I don't know, that's too much. I feel like maybe the mom was pulling your leg somehow. I can hope anyway...

    @BabySunshine4 - Right! DH and I were joking in the car afterwards that a name like that is almost asking her to be a stripper.

    My husband works with an Areola, although I'm not sure how it's spelled but it's definitely pronounced Areola. She's in her 30's and I think she's from India so maybe a cultural name?

  • I remember once I was eating lunch and they called out an order for Areola. I thought it had to be a joke. I had posted it on Facebook and someone said she knew a woman named Eriola which sounded very similar when said aloud. But yeah. I just think of boob.
