CHOOSING a name for your baby can be a difficult task.
But one mum had a great idea to help pick a moniker for her little girl, and it involved placing a bet with her other half.
TikTok user AMosley9 took to the social media site to share a video of herself rocking her baby daughter in a sling as she washed out her bottles, with Dolly Parton’s smash hit Jolene playing in the background.
“When your husband loses a bet and you get to name your daughter after your favourite song your husband hates,” she wrote on top of the video.
The video has been watched more than 159,000 vezes, and viewers were largely divided about the name in the comments section.
“I wanted to name our puppy that my fiance wouldn’t let me,” uma pessoa escreveu, enquanto outro adicionado: “If I could have another (bebê) and it was a girl this would be it.”
“My daughter’s name is Jolene, and it’s my favourite song because it’s the first song I sang Karaoke,” outra pessoa escreveu.
Another person revealed they’d had rows with their partner about the name themselves, commenting: “Ughhhh I begged to name our daughter Jolene last year, I love the name.

“She’s Coral, her dad hated the song too much.”
Others were less complimentary about the moniker, com uma escrita: “Oh hell nah.
“I don’t blame him at all I hate that song only because it’s my middle name – was named after my great grandparents.”
“Bruh my name is Jolene I hate it,” another person commented.
The TikToker isn’t the only one to choose the name for her tot.
According to BabyCenter, the moniker was the 501st most popular name of 2021 for girls.
But that’s up 53 places from its position the previous year.
