As a new parent, you may be surprised to learn that you don’t necessarily have the right to name your child whatever you’d like.
In fact, numerous moms and dads have learned this fact the hard way. For instance, if you love nature and live in Malaysia, don’t think about naming your son or daughter after your favorite flower, color, or animal. Or, if you come up with the strange and twisted idea of naming your son Adolf Hitler, history shows that you may risk losing your son to foster care.
While it seems obvious that some names should be outlawed — or at least not used in good taste — we have to admit that some don’t seem like they should be. This has led to numerous legal battles around the world, and some have turned very ugly!
See the above slideshow for a list of names that have come under attack.
