When you're pregnant, you're entitled to make some demands that may seem a little out there. But, as with all things, there's a line. And this woman who demanded that a dog owner change her pup's name because it's the same one she had chosen for her unborn child definitely crossed it.

A woman named Jennay recently shared a Facebook post about the exchange between herself and the pregnant acquaintance who made the request, according to Bored Panda. The unbelievable texts between Jennay and the unnamed woman made their way to Twitter, where they promptly went viral and received heated reactions.

In the texts, the woman reminded Jennay that they recently met at a christening and told her she was pregnant again, this time with a girl.


Jennay congratulated her and asked if she needed any help, to which she dropped this bomb: "We want to name her Tillie but it's come to my attention you have a dog named Tilly. I'd really appreciate you changing the dog's name lol. Obviously, she can't have the same name as a dog and we're bound to bump into each other."

When Jennay politely declined, the mom threw a complete fit. "You don't have children, you'll never understand how a mother can love and just want the best for this perfect little person," she wrote. "I'm honestly shocked you're being so heartless and unreasonable you didn't even consider changing the animal's name for my daughter's future. This is going to impact her life and potentially ruin her confidence and life. Can you even imagine growing up having the same name as a mutt?"


People found the exchange utterly baffling… even other Tillys out there.

One Twitter user joked the solution is to call her "Human Tilly," to make the difference clear.

And people are hoping dogs named Tilly aren't too offended by the whole thing.
