'[It’s] an Australian name that refers to a type of eucalyptus tree and means "tall and strong" in the local Aboriginal language,' she explained.
The woman said she decided to change his name after 'heartache and soul searching', mostly because she hates even telling people his name is Ezra.
'He's at the 12-month mark, if I change his name now it will forever show on his birth certificate and I will have to explain to him as an adult how I misnamed him as a child,' she added.
'Has anyone else been through this and has it affected their child later in life?'
Many commenters encouraged the mother to follow her heart and change her son's name.
'I think you should go for it,' one person said. 'We are all a little bonkers after birthing, so I totally get you.'
But another warned her not to mess with her child's name, writing: 'Get a goldfish. Call it the name you like. Leave your child's name alone.'
