Here are 12 names that made HerFamilie.ie wonder, “What were they thinking?” I think you’ll have the same reaction. Here’s their list:
In France one couple recently got the axe for trying to name their child after the world’s favorite chocolate spread. But in the US, however, couples name their kids after their favorite brands all the time. Here are some that were recently registered: Cartier, Chanel, Dior, L’Oreal, Armani and Nike.
A Tennessee judge recently told two parents that they couldn’t name their child Messiah. However, the judge’s request to deny Messiah his birth name was later overturned because of religious bias, and the child joined the ranks of several thousand others with the name. We feel people might have some unreasonable expectations to this guy!
Well, if Mercedes can do it…
- Winner and Loser
We’re not even joking about this one. Parents from Harlem actually used these names for their twin babies.
A couple in San Francisco named their first-born Hashtag – we can’t wait for his sister, Retweet, to come along!
No, guys, this is NOT a typo. A Chinese couple wanted to dub their son “@.” But at least they had a sweet reason mind: In Chinese, @ is pronounced ai-ta, which is very similar to a phrase that means “love him”. Okaaaay then, we’ll let them away with that one.
- Adolf Hitler
A New Jersey couple actually named their son Adolf Hitler Campbell — and his poor sister JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell. Guess what? The New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services ended up intervening. Shocker.
In Mexico, a judge recently banned the name Facebook, but an Egyptian dad dubbed his little girl with the same name, and got away with it.
We feel like it is a little bit poor form to brand your child with the name of Antichrist, no?
Three UK babies were bestowed this moniker last year. We feel like they all need siblings called either Smelly or Chutney.
There are no words for this one. Really
Well, if Gwyneth got away with Apple….
