“Not lucky. That’s bananas!” she said as she laughed.

“You mean to tell me your parents sat down and they were like: ‘It’s either gonna be Ivy, Scarlet, or Anne,’ and they were like, ‘Anne’s the winner’?” she asked.

“Don’t take that personal,” she said, adding: “I’m named after a mouse, okay.”


The influencer, whose full name is Mickey Milkov, has a moniker ripped out of Disney.

“But I’m not gonna come on here and be like: ‘My parents were gonna call me Goofy’!” she exclaimed.

Laughing uncontrollably, she added: “Like shut the f**k up!”

Another wrote: “Ashleigh but my name was gonna be Willow Bee.”

“No ma’am. Not for one moment,” Mickey responded.
