A MUM left people stunned when she revealed the name of her son, and people reckon he'll be bullied for life.
The parented said her own mum hates the name, but she doesn't see the problem with it.
Posting in a popular Facebook group, the mum defended her choice.
She said: "My oldest son is named Alpha Mael (spelled Mael, means prince or chief) Armstrong.
"And my mom absolutely hates it. Not silly at all though. Different but not silly. Conveys a lot."
Other parents slammed the mum for picking the name, with many saying she didn't think about how he'd feel about it growing up.
