A WOMAN has defended her reasons for naming her kids after a popular TV show after being trolled.
The mother-of-two, who uses the TikTok handle @theellisisland17, explained why she opted to name her kids after Grey's Anatomy.
"They weren't, per se, named after the characters, but more so just the show," the TikToker said.
"But I also didn't really want them to have 'weird' names.
"Owen and Harper are both on the top 100 baby list," she continued.
"So it's not like they're super uncommon names that you would only hear, like, on the show.

The TikToker goes on to explain that her two children share the same middle name – Grey – for a specific reason.
"They have the same middle name because they were donor conceived," she said.
But they chose Grey's Anatomy because of the first conversation she had with her wife.
"I'd never met anyone named Miranda before, and she said 'My name's Miranda,' and I said 'Oh my god like Miranda Bailey!'"
