An anonymous Redditor u/TheSacredGrape shared the post they came across with the names.

“So my oldest daughter’s name is Harbor,” the woman said.

She explained that the name was inspired by her husband’s work: “My husband is in the navy and we love the maritime theme,” she said.

The couple, set to give birth to their second child, are ready to offer suggestions for other maritime-themed names.

“All of our middle names start with A so we wanted to keep that trend and our last names start with H.

She said: “I am giving birth to my second daughter in October and we are looking for some possible nautical names to give her sister’s daughter.

However, the Redditor wasn’t happy with the name choice: “I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again: topics are stupid,” they said.

Everyone seems to agree with them in the comments.

“I usually don’t mind a more subtle naming theme,” one person commented.

“HOWEVER, Harbor is generally too bad a name for a human being. And it’s especially hard to hear because his dad is in the Navy.”

“I was going to post this here too. Someone suggested the name Saylor…”, one commenter joked.

“Seaweed Aquanet, Sandybeach Ann, Sandycheeks Arlene, Sailormoon Alyssa, Rockyshores Allison,” said the third.
