Chesney Leigh Wright is fully aware of the conversation that will soon be had when an elderly person leans in to coo over her son, who is three years old.

The 26-year-old mother of two holds her breath as the elderly guy asks for the name of her toddler, to which she smiles and answers, “Boye.”

Because of her son’s unusual name, Chesney Leigh often receives insults from others.

She gave her son the name boy, but she added an E to make it special.

Even her mother finds the name offensive, though Chesney likes it.

The man is perplexed and asks again, saying that he wants to know her son’s name rather than his gender because he doesn’t realize that Boye is actually his moniker.

Exclusive to Fabulous, Chesney asserts: “This occurs frequently.

“When they ask for my son’s name, OAPs become confused.

“When they learn what I called him, they accuse me of being insane and advise me to give him a genuine name.

“I can’t believe pensioners are making fun of me.”

It’s Boye for a boy, plain and simple, she says. I adored his name when we first started using it after his birth. Even though some refer to it as “Britain’s maddest name,” I properly registered it without receiving any complaints and it fits him well.

The name of my son, Boye, received quick approval.

After an eight-hour labor, Chesney’s baby was born in November 2019 weighing 8lbs 1oz. Joe, Boye’s father and Chesney’s co-parent, was also present to greet the little patient when he arrived at Mansfield Kingsmill Hospital. Chesney claims that the name was originally a family joke when she gave Boye the middle name Lei, which is a variation of her middle name Leigh.

We were looking for a unique and memorable name, but we couldn’t find one we liked, the woman claims. When his father, my ex-partner, was born, his parents were hoping for a girl. When a boy arrived, they didn’t decide on a name for a few weeks and called him Boy. His father and I joked about naming our son “boy” while I was pregnant.

It had become a running joke. Then, in my third trimester, I discovered that I had grown fond of the name and decided that, sure, we would give our baby the name Boy, but with an E so that no one would be mistaken. As a nod to his background, his father also adored the concept. The ‘E’ has minimal impact on reducing confusion, claims Chesney.

The hospital’s nurses expressed disbelief, saying they had delivered many boys but never one named Boye. Either you adore it or you detest it.

And Chesney acknowledges that Boye’s grandmother, Heather, Boye’s mother, was shocked by the decision.

“My mother was furious. Four months after his birth, she held out on using his name, she claims. She pleaded with me to change my mind after telling me it wasn’t a suitable name. She now adores it. I frequently get asked if I plan to name my future child a girl. Others questioned whether I had done it on a dare.

Despite the fact that she thinks her kid’s name is suitable for him, Chesney admits that using it in public can be awkward because people frequently assume she is being overly strict with her son. They end up giggling when they learn that his real name is Boye, she claims.

Before Chesney adopted the name, there were no Boyes in Britain. Unexpectedly, a global name search engine has discovered that fourteen men worldwide have the first name BOY, compared to four women. The baby’s name, spelled BOYE, is shared by 16 males and 3 women. But Chesney is accustomed to debates about baby names.

After a two-hour labor, Eriella Leigh, her first child, was born in a parking lot close to Mansfield Hospital in April 2016 weighing only four pounds, one ounce.

“Eriella is a cross between Ariel and Elijah, which are names I loved,” the author claims. Boye’s middle name, Lei, is a tribute to my middle name and to my family, thus I used the full spelling of Leigh for her second name.

“My pals instantly rolled their eyes when they heard the name Boye. But it doesn’t matter to me what other people think of his name; it’s wonderful, and that’s all that matters.
