ILLEGAL Baby Names

  • Published on Jun 8, 2019
  • Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter, “Apple.” The middle name of Kurt Cobain’s daughter is “Bean,” and Beyonce named her daughter “Blue Ivy.” It seems there’s no shortage of strange names out there. If you don’t have a unique name, then you probably know people who do. What you might not have known is that there are countries that do not allow specific names. Let’s take a look at a few of those quirky gems, shall we?

    7. You Can’t Be Stinky!
    In the Malaysian language, “Chow Tow” means “Smelly Head.” It’s a funny name in English. If you don’t speak Malaysian, you might think the words “chow tow” sounds cute. Malaysian law does not think it’s cute. When a couple wanted to name their kid Chow Tow, authorities quickly shut them down. In response to this case and the number of people applying to change their names, the Malaysian National Registration Department released a list of forbidden names.
    6. Please Stop The Nonsense
    What would you do if you were looking at an ID card and the name had two quotation marks with a period in between? Unless you are well-versed in the way messages work on the telegraph, you might be at a loss of what to call this person. One New Zealand couple decided to name their child Full Stop, with the quotations and period as the way to spell the name. “Full Stop” ended up on the 2013 list of New Zealand’s banned baby names. The list includes 77 names, such as “4Real” “V8” and “Justice.” For the most ridiculous one from New Zealand yet, keep watching.

    5. A Poisonous Child
    Some people may think it’s hardcore or cool to name a kid something like Venom or Toxic, but that sort of stuff doesn’t fly in the UK. Compared to Portugal or New Zealand, the UK doesn’t have that many strict rules against names. However, when one mother from Wales attempted to name her daughter Cyanide, authorities intervened. On the mother’s end, she explained she thought the word “cyanide” sounded pretty. It should also be noted that the daughter’s twin, a boy, was named Preacher, which the courts also did not like. They ordered the mother to rename both children because they concluded neither name were in the son and daughter’s best interests.

    4. Take That “H” Away
    In western nations, most women whose names are “Sarah” spell it with an H. Morocco says if you must name your child Sarah, you must omit the H. Why? When naming a baby, the law states parents must choose from a list of acceptable names. All of these names uphold a “Moroccan identity.” To officials, spelling Sarah with H is banned because it is considered the Hebrew version of that name. Sara ending with an “A” is totally fine, though, because that is the Arabic version.
    3. Are You A Robot?
    Sweden also has strict naming laws, so when these next parents registered their baby, it became a huge issue. In 1996, a Swedish couple thought it would be unique to name their son BRFXXCCXXMNPCCCCLLLMMNPRXVCLMNCKSSQLBB11116! That’s a whopping 43-character name, and it looks like they picked it by picking up random letters and numbers off the floor. The couple then said that you pronounce this as “Albin,” a fairly common name in Scandinavia. Swedish law enforcement said, “no dice” to that choice. Discouraged but not yet defeated, the couple then said the son’s name would then be “A” which would also be pronounced Albin. How did Sweden respond? They basically said, “Try again.” In another instance, a different Swedish couple tried to name their child “Metallica,” which also was rejected.

    2. Align With The Alphabet
    Names are different in Iceland than in many other countries. First of all, some people do not use family names or last names. Instead, your second name is your father’s and sometimes mother’s first name followed by the Icelandic terms for “son” or “daughter.” Second of all, Iceland has its own set of letters. If a name cannot be conjugated in Icelandic, then guess what? You cannot have that name! A couple that wanted to name their daughter Harriet was prohibited from doing so because it cannot be conjugated. They also had a son whose name was Duncan, but that was not allowed either because there is no “C” in the Icelandic alphabet. When gaining passports for their children, the parents had to list their children’s names as “boy” and “Girl.”

    I just met an adorable, little three year old, named Messiah. His name will probably cause him problems in the future.

    Really? Naming your children second & third?!🤦🏼‍♀️
    I would think that, it would make your child feel like they weren't even worth the time for u to pick out a name just for them.🤷🏼‍♀️👀👀.
    I'm glad that all 3 of my children have either their first or middle name that was originally a family member of theirs. Just like my middle name is my great grandma's name.
    I may be wrong, but that's how I would feel if my parents named me something like that, but all my other siblings got a regular/meaningful name.🤔🤷🏼‍♀️
    **Please, don't reproduce if u think this is alright!!**

    I used to be a telemarketer for a catalog company (we only called our customers) and made-up names either amused me or confused me, because some customers got hot under the collar because "everybody pronounces it wrong." Well, lady, (it was almost always a female) if you hang a bunch of letters together that can be pronounced in several different ways... I also had a number of female customers named "Otis," which was a new one on me when I'd asked to speak to Otis and got a woman. (There's a character in the movie[s] "The Biscuit Eater" named "Text." His mother said it was a religious name because "--every Sunday the Preacher says, "I will now read to you from the _Text.")_

    I am of the opinion that names should really be meaningful. That everyone should be proud to say it where ever and when ever. Don't call me kettle etc etc and think that I'll be proud saying it we should do this for our children not just for our sakes and how it sounds like. Let it be meaningful please.

      @Cool Moon
      Sorry that i could not express my self clearly. I want you to understand that we share the same opinion on this matter. Parents do not need to name a kid kettle for example and expect the child to proudly say in public that his name is kettle. Hope you understand

      @Ace Hardware 1477 ok ..... I have no idea what you mean . You're being vague.. so whatever. . ok .. I said if you are going to have a snobby name then have your last name fit it.. it's absurd to name your kid something high class only to have a shitty last name. .. so yeah..
