Stop everything! If you’re expecting and have a baby name all sorted for your little one, make sure you check this list first because what might be cute and awesome to you might mean something quite different in another country!
And if you’ve already gone and called your treasured bub one of these delightful (yet unintentionally crass) names, don’t stress. Well, unless you plan on doing a lot of travelling!
If you’re in love with the name Rebecca, you might want to avoid its shortened form, Becky. While Becky is a completely harmless and very sweet nickname, in the Philippines it’s also the affectionate slang name for a young gay man, so expect a few giggles!
