List of Banned Baby Named Ruled Illegal To Use in The U.S.
The excitement of having a baby can be also overwhelming, especially when it comes to picking out a name.
Baby names have become, what's the right word, unique in some ways. Maybe that's thanks to celebrities like The Kardashian, rock stars, and actors/actresses. I know when I was naming my daughters we have about three or four names picked out and when we first saw them each time we named them something different. It's that saying, I have to see them first before I name them. Well, if you are expecting, congratulations, but there are some names you CAN NOT name your child.
Who would have thought that there are specific names banned in the United States? There are a few according to today.com. You can name your child:
- Jesus Christ
- Adolf Hitler
- Santa Clause
All have been ruled illegal by courts in the United States. Do you mean to tell me that someone wanted to name their child @ and the U.S. saw enough people wanting to use the @ as a name and had to officially ban it? And who would want to name a child after a mass killer? I don't get it, guess I'm not in the cool crowd.
Not only does the U.S. have banned names, but there are some states that have some rules as well.
Arizonians must abide to a 141 character limit — 45 for the first name, 45 for middle, and 45 for last. And derogatory or obscene names are banned in California.
Social Security has not released to top baby names for 2021 just yet, but back in 2020 the top names for Illinois were:
and for Iowa:
The only advice I can give is to remember, that what may be cute when your child is five might not be cute when they are grown up.
