Giving Kids a Bad Name: 8 Illegal Baby Names

Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvc...

In 1991, Swedish parents Elisabeth Hallin and Lasseprotest the naming law in Sweden named their baby:

Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116

The 43 character name (pronounced Albin) was rejected they submitted just the letter "A" (also pronounced Albin) as a replacement. It too was rejected.

"@"

Who could blame parents for wanting to give their kid a name AND a start on an email address? A couple of Chinese parents in Beijing decided to use the "@" symbol to name their child explaining "the whole world uses the symbol to write e-mails and that translated into Chinese, it means 'love him'."Well, the police in China, who approve children's didn't agreee. The name vetoed the name.

Metallica

Another Swedish couple, in 2007, were denied the right to name their baby Metallica -- even after the child had already baptized with the headbanging moniker. In defense of the name, mom Karolina Tomaro, said, "It suits her. She's decisive, and she knows what she wants." Finally the court ruled in their favor and they were allowed to officially keep the name.

LEGO

The Swedes took umbrage with yet another name. This time the Administrative Court of Appeals, which bans couples from "picking names that might one day embarrass their young," attempted to block a parents from naming their child LEGO. Don't know what all the fuss was about, as most kids'll tell you, LEGO's are cool. After much legal wrangling the board ruled in the parents favor.

4Real

A New Zealand couple, so amazed that the ultra sound of their baby was, in their words, "for real," Pat and Sheena Wheaton submitted the name 4Real as the baby's name. The name was blocked by Australian Marriages Offices, which approves names. No worries, the couple went with their second choice, Superman.

Talula Does the Hula from Hawaii

A nine-year-old girl whose parents named her "Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii" was put into court guardianship in New Zealand so that her name could be changed.

The judge criticised parents who give their offspring bizarre names, saying it exposed children to ridicule among their peers.

Huckleberry

In Germany there are rules to what parents can name their kids. Obviously naming your kid Hitler after the most reviled man in history is forbidden. Not all names rejected are as obviously offensive. Parents who wanted to name their boy Huckleberry were turned down because Huckleberry Finn is considered an outsider in Mark Twain's novels.

Hitler

Heath and Deborah Campbell were able to name their children, Adolf Hitler and JoyceLynn Aryan Nation with little resistance, until one day they attempted to get young Adolf Hitler's name inscribed on a cake at the local ShopeRite. The story gained national attention and eventually, in January the children were taken into the care of the Child Family Services. No reason has been released to the public on why exactly the children were removed. Although some argue naming a boy Hitler should be reason enough.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

The solution is to gradually become free of societal rewards and learn how to substitute for them rewards that are under one’s own powers. This is not to say that we should abandon every goal endorsed by society; rather, it means that, in addition to or instead of the goals others use to bribe us with, we develop a set of our own.

The weight ought to not dominate your life. As an example: I´m skinnier than some of my friends, but they weigh less. The reason is, that I’ve much more muscles than then and rather heavy bones ( in particular the legs)
