    celebrities seem to relish in giving their children stupid names which will cause many episodes of sorrow for the child

    Is it justified for the state to intervene to prevent parents naming their child "Adolf Hitler"?

    I think that this could be considered a form of child abuse knowingly or not
    what do you think?

    I am wary of the precedent it would set and then how on earth you would monitor, decide and enforce rules about naming children. So, if I hear a story about authorities stepping in to prevent a baby being named Adolf Hitler (officially), I may well welcome the 'common sense' action taken to spare the child the consequences of their daft parents' idiosyncrasy [or deliberate two fingers up at the word?], but if I hear a story about authorities drawing up a list of thousands of proscribed names and appointing staff to a special office that addresses the issue and setting mandatory fines or sanctions (or charges for the intervention incurred), I don't think I'd be enthusiastic at all.

    No, but they should probably be kicked to death to the sounds of David Hasslehoff.

    In Germany there is a list of acceptable names for both boys and girls. I'm sure "Adolf" is on the list as allowed but, understandably, that particular name is not popular there. I'm pretty sure the name "Hitler" is not on the list of acceptable boys names, and the family of the A.H. changed their name long ago so as not to propagate the family name.

    I cannot say whether any other countries limit the naming of children.
