Illegal Baby Names – Yes there are some names which are not allowed and banned in United States and some other countries around the world.
Sometimes choosing a suitable name of your newly born can be a difficult decision.
Also it goes beyond just picking a name that your family like the sound of. You’ll need to choose a name that doesn’t get your children bullied especially at school.
We don’t understand how these parents came up with these choices of names for their children.
In order to to save more children from suffering a same issues, we’ve compiled a list of illegal baby names from the USA and around the world. Let’s check them out!
US Naming Laws
Even U.S has some comfortable naming laws, there are still some names which aren’t allowed to name for a child. And still these laws differ from state to state, mostly having a numeral in your name not allowed at all.
Example, a name such as “Mon1ka”, wouldn’t be allowed as your chosen moniker.
Also some states in U.S limit the number of characters that can be used, as well as the inclusion of pictograms, obscenity, foreign characters, symbols, emojis, or any offensive language.
Some states also forbid the use of accents and/or non-English letters, which is oftentimes due to the inability of their information systems to process vital records including these characters.
One of U.S states such as California don’t allow the use of accents, but they allowed the inclusion of hyphens and apostrophes. That’s how Elon Musk and Grimes were able to name their child “X AE A-XII”.
