Choosing a baby name isn’t always easy, and some parents spend months trying different first name/middle name combinations before deciding on one they really like.

Whatever you choose to name your baby is your decision and shouldn’t be influenced by anyone else, but one mom on Reddit is split with her unique choice — as some say, it sounds like a treatment for head lice and nits.

The woman said she names her daughter Athena but has tried to find a suitable middle name, her only rule being that it has to be one syllable.

But after saying her favorite pick so far is Athena Nyx, people have said they’re not entirely convinced.

In her post, she wrote: “Is Athena Nyx too much? Be honest. I’m trying to decide on a middle name.

“I’m just wondering if the double goddess name is too much. I love the meaning and the name.

“I think it just goes really well together, but I have a feeling that anyone who hears the name will think it’s a little bit weird, and I’m really into mythology, even though I’m not really.”

Commenters on the post were divided over the name, with one person even suggesting that it sounds like a treatment for head lice and nits since Nix is ​​the name of a lice treatment brand.

They said, “I don’t love it. I don’t like the name Nyx. Nix is ​​a lice treatment and that’s all I think about, plus I don’t find Nyx attractive at all.”

As someone else added, “Nix is ​​a lice treatment, that’s the first association I have, sorry.”

Others agreed the name was “too much,” but there were some commenters who said they “loved” the moniker.

One wrote: “Way too much.”

While another said: “Sounds like a feminine hygiene product brand.”

But someone else disagreed, saying, “I love it, but I’m a nerd.”

As a fourth wrote: “Meaning aside, I think it sounds really good. It has a nice flow.”
