There are certain names that nobody should ever give their children. That’s why banned baby names are a common occurrence across the globe.
Banned Baby Names
I found quite a few interesting names that have been banned in different countries.
For instance “Talulah Does the Hula from Hawaii” A judge in Wellington, New Zealand made her a ward of the court so her “embarrassing” name could be changed. At the same time, judge Rob Murfitt criticised parents who gave their children bizarre names. Citing examples such as “Number 16 Bus Shelter”, “Midnight Chardonnay” and twins called “Benson” and “Hedges” after a brand of cigarettes.
Naming laws are different from country to country. But a few things are very similar no matter where you are.
Here is a list of all countries I found that have an official naming law:
12. New Zealand
14. Saudi Arabia
17. United States
