20 Absurd Baby Names Banned From Around The Globe

Bunches of parents to-be battle to think about an infant name, however this is for the most part because of other individuals funneling in with their assessments.

What’s more, not on the grounds that the administration finds your name decision so completely astonishing that they lawfully prohibit you from utilizing it.

A year ago gave us some genuine revulsions, however 2016 has served up the finest in banned child names, demonstrating a few grown-ups truly do require full-time supervision.

1. Anus

According to The Mirror, a set of parents in Denmark chose to ignore the list of 7000 approved names in the country, and instead chose to call their offspring, Anus. Unsurprisingly, they were stopped.

2. Lucifer

Lucifer was on a 2014 list for banned names in New Zealand, and in 2013, when the devil also appeared on the blacklist.

3. Fish And Chips

One set of parents saw an opportunity when they had twins, and decided to name them fish and chips. The parents from New Zealand were shown the door.

4. Justice

Compared to battered cod, Justice is seemingly innocuous , but it runs afoul of the country’s policy that rejects names that give the impression of a title – such as Corporal, Duke, Knight, Bishop and – amazingly – Senior Constable.

5. Facebook

Some parents in Sonora Mexico decided to name their new child Faceebook. Mexico has since released a list of banned names following a trend of silly applications.

Campaigner Cristina Ramírez established Article 46 to protect children from bullying at school. The names Include:

i. Twitter

Why name your child after one of the world’s biggest social network?

ii. Robocop

Sigh, these parents can’t be trusted

6. Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116

In Sweden, there is a law preventing parents from naming their children Metallica and Elvis. But in retaliation, a couple attempted to name their child Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116. Yes, we know…

Apparently, it is pronounced Albin, though we’re not sure how. The parents were subsequently fined £450 (hopefully just for being so contrary).

7. III (To be pronounced “Three.”)

The California Court of Appeal in 1984 said this was a symbol, therefore could not be used as a name.

8. Circumcision

WHYYYY. This name is banned in Sonoro, Mexico, but we cannot imagine why you would want call your child that in the first place.

9. James Bond

This awesome name is also banned in Sonoro.

10. Terminator

Well at least Sonora has stopped there from ever being a funeral director or doctor with the first name Terminator.

11. Osama Bin Laden

This name is banned in Germany. Germany has a number of baby-naming restrictions, including: no gender-neutral names; no last names, names of objects, or names of products as first names; and no names that could negatively affect the child’s well-being or lead to humiliation.

12. Adolf Hitler

This name is also banned in Germany. Sensing a trend here? why name your child after some of the world’s notorious terrorists?

13. Woti (Meaning: Sexual Intercourse)

This name is banned in Malysia for obvious reasons. Malaysia has a list of names that are considered “undesirable” and that are subsequently banned.

14. Batman

They didn’t think of Bruce Wayne, ‘Batman’ was the first thing that came to mind, lol. This name is banned in Sonora, Mexico.

15. Rihanna

This name is banned in Portugal. According to their naming laws, children’s names must be traditionally Portuguese, gender-specific, and full, meaning no nicknames.

16. @

As is the case with many countries, China doesn’t allow symbols and numerals to be included in baby names. The “at” symbol is pronounced “ai-ta” in Chinese, which sounds similar to a phrase meaning “love him.” One couple felt the symbol was a fitting name for their son, but the Chinese government apparently did not agree.

17. Linda

In 2014, Saudi Arabia released its own list of banned baby names. Several of them, like “Linda,” claimed spots due to their association with Western culture.

18. “.” (FULL STOP)

Among New Zealand’s 2013 list of banned names that people apparently tried giving to their children is the symbol “.”. The name would have been pronounced “Full Stop.”

19. Akuma (The Devil)

The case of baby Akuma, which means “devil” in Japanese, stirred such a frenzy that it even caught the attention of the Prime Minister’s cabinet. The Justice Minister at the time spoke out against the government intervention, saying, “It is not appropriate to instruct parents to change children’s names without legal basis.” Regardless, the name “devil” eventually became illegal in Japan.

20. Sex Fruit

The New Zealand government thankfully stepped in before some poor child had to spend the rest of their life with the name “Sex Fruit.” Though being raised by parents who thought that was a smart idea in the first place probably presents its own set of challenges.
