Young woman stunned after finding out her name isn’t actually Gabrielle: ‘I spotted it when I saw my birth certificate’

  • Young woman’s legal name is ‘Babrielle’
  • She is known as Gabrielle, the intended name

A young woman has revealed she was shocked and confused when, at 15, she found out her real name.

It wasn’t until she needed her birth certificate for something that the young woman, who thought her name was Gabrielle Mayor, realised it was quite different.

Instead of ‘Gabrielle’ her birth certificate listed ‘Babrielle’ as her legal first name.

This ‘changed everything’ as she joked she might have to go from ‘Gabby’ to ‘Babby’ when with friends.

The young woman, who is from New York City admits her ‘life is pretty crazy’ and the name mix up is just part of it.

‘Thinking about how my parents made a typo on my birth certificate and I didn’t find out until age 15 that my real name is actually Babrielle,’ she said.

But people were keen on the clerical error.

‘Babrielle goes hard though,’ one woman said.

While another said she would love the name and would choose to go by ‘Babs’ or ‘Barbie’ ‘for life’.

Others shared their own birth certificate typo stories.

‘You are definitely not alone, I didn’t find out til I was 40,’ one woman said.

‘My name was Aslhey instead of Ashley for 20 years,’ another said.

Some had completely different names on their certificates.

People said they liked the name, despite it being a typo, and that she should go by 'Babs' or Barbie

‘At 16 I found out birth certificate had “Tracy.” My name is Valorie,’ one woman said.

‘My friend’s legal name was baby girl Williams because her name was not decided at the time. Til she was like 12,’ explained another.

While another said the same thing happened to her mum and she ‘had to change it her self when she was 20’.

Other awkward mix ups were also revealed. 

‘We had to order my birth certificate to get my nose pierced and it says FATHER: Sarah MOTHER: Jake,’ one woman laughed.

‘My mom forgot how to spell Brianna thanks to the epidural and now my middle name is Brieanne. it took me 12 years to learn how to spell it,’ one laughed.

The conversation happened on TikTok where Gabby’s video has been seen 2.9million times.
