Recently, a Reddit user shared a story where he legally changed his name, and as a result, his father threatened him. Here’s the full story.
He Was Named After a God
The original poster (OP) was named by his father after a character from a story he had written about a brave warrior God.
The Reason for His Name
According to him, he gave OP this name so that OP could be anyone he wanted to be.
He’s Been Bullied for His Name Since Childhood
OP said that since his name sounds like a god’s, he was teased for having it when he was in a private Christian academy elementary school.
He Sobbed All the Way to His Father
He was so upset by this that he sobbed all the way to his father. But his father didn’t care and joked about the whole situation.
He Only Used His Middle Name
OP was hurt by this, and he decided to start using only his middle name.
He Moved to a New Place and Severed Ties
OP moved to another country and spent some time without speaking to his father. Then one day, his father decided to start calling OP once a week.
He Only Wanted to Complain About His Mother
The only issue was that he only ever wanted to discuss how abusive OP’s mother was to him in their marriage.
But OP loves his mother, so this really bothered him.
He Stopped Talking to His Father Again
As a result, OP repeatedly told him he didn’t want to talk about it anymore, and then his father got upset with OP and ignored him for eight months.
He Made a YouTube Song About His Abusive Father
Some months later, OP wrote a song and uploaded it to YouTube about the trauma and issues his father has caused him.
His Father Blamed Him
OP’s father watched it and wrote a comment on it stating that their connection is mutual and that he opted to end communication with OP after OP said he “wouldn’t listen to him anymore.”
OP says that this was a lie, and he got very angry at his father for shifting the blame on him.
His Father Was Gaslighting Him
After some time, things cooled down, and OP started talking again with his father.
But this time, OP made sure to record their phone calls. Throughout their conversations, OP’s father repeatedly gaslit and lied to him.
He Legally Changed His Name
That was the final straw, and OP legally changed his name and got rid of the name his father gave him since it hurt too much.
He Didn’t Mention It to His Father
But he didn’t mention it to his father. This happened 10 years ago.
His Father Revealed Some Unexpected News
Many years passed, and then things took a turn when OP’s father revealed that he had cancer.
OP was worried about his father’s health, so he started texting him to see how he was doing just to make sure.
Things Took a Turn
Things turned ugly when OP graduated from college recently, and his father discovered that OP had changed his name.
He told OP that he “needed time to think about how he was going to deal with this situation.”
His Father Threatened Him
His father is now threatening to end their relationship, again, if OP doesn’t apologize for lying to him for ten years.
For hiding his name change, making defamatory YouTube videos, and acting as though he was unaware of the significance of his name.
His father told OP to change his legal name back to his original name.
But OP informed him that since he did nothing wrong, he would not be changing his name, and they stopped speaking, again.
