A NEW mom was mocked for her unusual baby name – it's much worse when you realize the first letter is silent.
The unidentified mother-to-be shared the exciting news of her pregnancy on Facebook only to meet the ire of Reddit users who slammed her future child's name.
The mom included a photo of her ultrasound taken on May 25 of this year.
"Baby girl 'DD,' she captioned the post, including the full name she planned to give her daughter.
The name, written out in pink font, includes an apostrophe, two names combined into one, and a silent letter – and it has horrified Redditors.
The name: D'gynesisDream Aurora McNeal.
A comment on the original Facebook post asked the mom-to-be to clarify how it should be said.
"How do you pronounce the first name? I've never heard of it before," the person wrote.
"GenesisDream, D is silent like Django," the mom answered.
Since a screenshot of the post was shared on Reddit, commenters have shared their horror and confusion.

"How many times a day will she need to spell that for the rest of her life?" asked one.

"People answer with such confidence when they should be seriously embarrassed by their choices," a fourth chimed in.
Meanwhile, an expecting mother said her best friend “stole” her baby's name but instead of getting it back, she found something better.

Several mocked the name, with one saying D'gynesis "sounds like a disease" and another saying it looks like "D’Gynecologist."
"I hope the kid doesn’t grow up to be a D’jenerate," quipped another.
