I named my daughter the day before the Queen died, it’s so awkward when people ask what she’s called | The Sun
IT'S a royal name that will undoubtedly have increased in popularity following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last week.
But one mum was quick to correct people about the inspiration for her daughter's name, and set the record straight in a video on TikTok.
"Registered my daughter’s name as Elizabeth on Wednesday," El wrote over a video of herself and baby Elizabeth.
"The Queen unfortunately passes away on Thursday and now people will think I named my daughter after her."
"She’s actually named after a family member," El added in the caption for the video.
People in the comments section were quick to weigh in, and many of them revealed they were in similar situation with their children's names.
