Say what? Kristina Fletcher, 31, from Crestwood, Kentucky, revealed on TikTok last week that she was named after her father’s mistress
Looking back: The TikToker explained her mother had a C-section and was ‘super drugged up’ when her dad filled out the paperwork with her name
Kristina explained that she was her parents’ first child, and while her mother was pregnant, they came to an agreement about who would get to name her.
If she was a boy, her mother would name her after her grandfather. If she was a girl, her dad would choose her name.
‘Well, skip forward to the day that I was born, my mom wound up having to have a C-section because my big a** head wouldn’t fit through the birth canal,’ she shared.
‘She was super drugged up after that, and my dad filled out all of my paperwork. And, at last, he chose to name me Kristina.’
Wow: Kristina said her dad named her Kristina so he could claim he was talking about her if he accidentally called her mom by his mistress’s name
Candid: Kristina revealed in the comments that her father abandoned her and her siblings when she was three
Kristina said her mom ‘really didn’t hate the name, so she just kind of went with it’ when she came to in the hospital.
‘Everything was fine for a few months — until my mom found out that my dad was cheating on her,’ she added.
‘And guess what the woman’s name was? Kristina. So if he messed up and called her the wrong name, he could say he was talking about me.’
Thousands of people took to the comments, with one person asking if she has a ‘good relationship’ with her dad now.
‘No,’ Kristina replied. ‘My dad left when I was three and never had any contact with me or my sisters until we were grown. He went on to have more kids, [whom]he also abandoned.
Not alone! Kristina’s TikTok inspired others to share the wild origin stories of their own names in the comments
Others opened up about the wild origin stories of their own names, reassuring Kristina that she wasn’t alone.
‘My dad named me after a girl he had a crush on in middle school,’ one person wrote. ‘When my mom found out she stabbed him with a fork.’
‘My mom was named after one of her dad’s mistresses too! She hates her name,’ someone else shared.
One person named Lenea explained that her dad ‘heard a story on the radio about a girl named Lenae who was murdered.’
Another TikToker commented: ‘My cousin is named after his dad’s favorite drug dealer.’
