French Court Bans Parents From Naming Their Kid “Nutella”

1

You may think that the world is awash in stupid baby names, but a French court found it necessary to step in and actually ban a family from calling their kid “Nutella”, stating that naming a human being after a hazelnut spread is “contrary to the child’s interest” and “can only lead to teasing or disparaging thoughts”.

The parents showed their feelings by skipping out on a scheduled court appearance, prompting the court to shorten the baby’s name to “Ella” – a move that will surely be recognized only in an official capacity.
